Product Description

The Stress effect reveals the powerful and undermining effects of stress on good decision making-and what
leaders can do about it.

The ability to make sound and timely decisions is the mark of a good leader. In The Stress Effect,
leadership expert Henry L. Thompson argues that stress is often the real culprit behind this leadership
failure: Thompson suggests that stress actually blocks access to your emotional intelligence as well as
your cognitive ability, two critical components in the decision-making process.
