Abstract
  • Recent studies have shown that there is a significant amount of dissatisfaction and stress associated with finances, job security, and work. There are many health related consequences that manifest in response to this continual stress that we experience in our professional lives. These include obesity, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, heart disease, depression, mental illness and reduced life expectancy. Current views on leadership would suggest that leadership positions are rewards for hard work and for due diligence. It is herein suggested that such a philosophy leads to a sense of entitlement amongst leadership and leads to actions which are not only detrimental to society but also undermine our very nature. An alternative to current conventional leadership philosophy is presented which is based on the biological underpinnings of human behavior and satisfaction. General techniques for effective leadership and management in keeping with this underlying philosophy are also presented.
