“Are you a worrier?
If you’re a woman business owner,
the answer is likely “yes,”
according to a recent report
and white paper from CDR Assessment Group.
The study, which focused on executives
and why women have trouble
breaking the glass ceiling,
found that 65 percent of women leaders
tend to be “worriers” under stress.
In contrast, stressed out male leaders
are more likely to fall into categories
such as “egotists,” “rule breakers”
Excessive worrying costs
Because they miss out on opportunities.
They don’t make decisions
I’m partnered with a worrier.
He (yes, he - women aren’t the only worriers)
worries about everything
and this prevents him from making decisions.
I’m the opposite.
I’ll try something and see if it works.
I push him to make decisions.
He pushes me to think about my decisions.
We balance each other.
Worrying DOES have a cost.
Learn how to handle it.
