Stress Eating Oreos and Leadership
I was listening to a podcast today about emotional eating.
This is something I deal with. I tend to eat mindlessly right after the kids get home from school.
This is a stressful time of day for many parents. There’s A LOT going on. I’d describe it as a zombie apocalypse erupting in a circus during a hurricane.
Oreos are eaten.
This concept of emotional eating spilled over into my business mind.
What’s the leadership version of stress eating??
What coping behaviors do we use when stressed at work?
· Risk taking
Of course there’s a leadership equivalent. We bring the same brain that sends us into the **second row** of Oreos to work every day!!!
We don’t have a magical shield separating our 2 worlds.
We get triggered.
We cope with behaviors that probably aren’t moving the ball forward.
