A recent study has found that leaders experience less stress levels as compared to their peers. The study was conducted by the researchers of Harvard Kennedy School, California University, Harvard Business School and Stanford University.
During the study, the researchers recruited participants from two different groups. The first group pertained to people who have been taking up leadership roles in communities and industries. The other group comprised of people who were not at leadership roles.
During the study, the participants were tested for stress hormones cortisol that is measured thorough the saliva samples. The samples of the participants were taken and it was found that people playing leadership roles had lower stress hormones as compared to those non-leader participants.
The study was led by Professor Jennifer S. Lerner of Harvard Kennedy School. Lerner said, "It is important to stress that when we talk about stress, it's not when students walk around saying `I'm so stressed out'-that's a subjective feeling. These are biologically measured differences in stress hormone levels". The findings of the researchers will help in understanding as to why a leader finds it easy to take decision even during the time of crisis.
