Executive Behavioral Health
Studies indicate that one in six executives is troubled by personal problems that affect his job performance.
– “Trouble at the Top” D. Bender, EAP Digest
When an executive’s personal problems escalate, they become business problems. Typical warning signs include:
- “Job shrinkage’ or a decreased ability to carry out a typical workload
- Delayed decision-making, risk aversion and over-cautious strategy formulation
- Excuse-making by those who work closely with the executive
- Erratic behavior, missed meetings, failure to keep commitments
- Sloppy preparation and follow-through
- Emotional blow-ups that seem provoked arbitrarily
