You’re More Vulnerable to Isolation and Stress Than You Think

Check out my new article in Government Executive on the perils of isolation and stress. Unfortunately, most people are unaware of the devastating effects of stress and isolation that I write about in the article, including that it’s harming their health and performance. The article is titled “You’re More Vulnerable to Isolation and Stress Than You Think.” If you know someone who may be struggling with this, please forward the article to them.

Is your energy level lower than you’d like? Do you feel you’re not performing at the top of your game? Are you so busy that it has crowded out time to truly connect with trusted confidants? If the answer to these questions is “yes,” you may be suffering from the effects of the “silent killer” of individuals, and it may also be holding back your performance and the performance of your organization. 

I recently had the opportunity to speak on The Small Business Advocate radio program hosted by Jim Blasingame. We discussed new research that indicates over half of Americans express a tendency toward loneliness and how companies can respond. Listen to our two-part conversation.
