‘The importance of sleep in organizational life’
What to expect
Lack of sleep is hindering managers’ ability to perform at their peak and having a negative impact on workplace relationships. It is a ‘hidden threat’ that organizations need to pay attention to if they want to ensure the well-being of their staff while also gaining competitive edge.
An in-depth research project by Hult Ashridge, surveyed over 1,000 professionals from a variety of sectors and levels of seniority and findings show that a lack of sleep is causing worrying health symptoms in today’s business professionals. Whilst there is a large body of research focusing on the impact of sleep in clinical populations, this research breaks new ground in focusing attention on a specific (managerial) population.
Drawing from her own research and her recent book, in this seminar, Vicki will discuss the ways that poor sleep can negatively affect individuals physically, cognitively and emotionally as well as the wider organizational and societal impact. She will go on to introduce some of the most common causes of poor sleep for working professionals and what changes individuals can make to improve their sleep, and therefore their own health and well-being.
