Next time your boss is extra snippy and impatient, take note of whether he or she has to take the stage any time soon.
It makes 41% of them irritable, 42% of them report losing their sense of humour, and 40% say they lose their appetite too. Almost half experience insomnia before a big speech, according to the survey, conducted by The Aziz Corporation, a communications consulting firm.
So what do you get when you have a boss who’s irritable, who has no sense of humour, who isn’t eating and hasn’t slept? Probably a bad day.
But cut your manager some slack. Public speaking isn’t everyone’s forte, and as Management Today points out, executives wouldn’t make it to the top if they didn’t have other traits to make up for that.
