I heart good management

A Swedish study published in the Journal of Occupational and Environmental Medicine had findings that don’t surprise the Gossip – bad management is bad for your health.

The study tracked the heart health of over 3000 Swiss workers over a decade and found those who gave their bosses low marks for leadership had an increased risk for heart disease.

The employees rated their leaders on “concrete managerial behaviors, such as the manager’s consideration for the individual employee, provision of clarity in goals and role expectations, supplying information and feedback, ability to carry out changes at work successfully, and promotion of employee participation and control.”
The researchers concluded that interventions to prevent heart disease among employees should focus on improving managers’ leadership skills.
