New Book Reveals the Powerful and Undermining Impact of Stress on Good Decision Making and What Leaders Can Do About It
Date:4/29/2010

The Stress Effect: Why Smart Leaders Make Dumb Decisions—And What to Do About It (Jossey-Bass, 2010) is a must-read book for Leaders who want to become Masters of Decision Making Under Stress and for those who must Hire, Develop and Retain High Potential Leaders.

Watkinsville, GA (PRWEB) April 29, 2010 -- In his groundbreaking and insightful new resource for leaders, The Stress Effect: Why Smart Leaders Make Dumb Decisions—And What to Do About It, Leadership Expert Henry L. (Dick) Thompson, Ph.D., shows that stress is often the real culprit behind leadership failure. When leaders’ stress levels become sufficiently elevated—whether in the boardroom or on the front line of a manufacturing process—their ability to effectively use their Emotional Intelligence and Cognitive Ability in tandem to make wise decisions is significantly impaired. Until now, experts have argued that increasing your Emotional Intelligence will help you cope with and manage stress. This book suggests that stress actually blocks access to your Emotional Intelligence as well as your Cognitive Ability, two critical components in the decision-making process. This book:

 
  • Shows how stress adversely affects the performance of even the most savvy leaders;
  • Explains how Leaders can use Performance Aids to make better decisions under stress; and
  • Arms Leaders with best practices for building a Stress Resilient System™, personally & organization-wide.
"The Stress Effect is superbly written. Every leader can grow personally and professionally from the information it presents on how stress impacts the quality and timeliness of decisions. It should be required reading for CEOs, members of the National Security Council, all military commanders, and university leaders,” says Lieutenant General Russel L. Honoré, U.S. Army (Ret), former Commander of First Army and Joint Task Force Katrina.
