The impact of sleep loss on individuals, teams and business

One of the ways to build up resilience, both physically and mentally, is to get a good night’s sleep. But as the pace of life is getting faster, many of us report sleeping less and less. We conducted research on the impact of sleep loss on senior leaders and found that managers were less able to analyse data from a variety of sources, make decisions, and hold strategic conversations when sleep deprived. Science has linked poor sleep to lots of poor physical outcomes and sleep deprived individuals may suffer weakened immune systems, high blood pressure, cardiovascular disease, and diabetes. There is a growing body of evidence showing a significant relationship between poor sleep and mood-related behaviours such as high hostility, low joviality, high frustration, high anxiety, and high paranoia. We've summarised some of the key findings in our eBook. Find out more about the impact sleep loss can have on the business' bottom line.
