No, stress is NOT caused by your job or your spouse or the economy or the lack of World peace!
George exemplifies the executives I deal with daily. Here is his account of a recent day:
I knew it was going to be a bad day when my boss called me into his office. The bank still has loads of junk loans and has not yet marked them down. A major customer just sued claiming that securities he bought were mis-represented. My boss got to business right away and told me that there had to be massive “cost cutting”. I would have to let two of my senior executives go including Jennifer. And, even though it was profitable, my entire division could be shut down. It was not considered to be a “core” operation.
