[FLR] Here’s Why You Are So Lonely (and Frustrated) at Work

Happy Friday!

 

There is a truth that it is lonely at the top for leaders. It is especially true if you are a first time leader. According to a leadership poll by Harris Interactive, more than 70% of first time CEO’s feel lonely & 61% of them report that it hinders their performance.

 

The most interesting part is that the most successful leaders are more effective at creating a supportive community. As you develop as a leader, look for ways to get support within and outside of your organization.
