    One of the most interesting findings of a recent HBR article on team chemistry is that the types of people who become leaders within organizations are about 30% less likely than their coworkers to feel stressed out. As the CEO of a small investment firm, I was surprised by the finding, but as I considered my own leadership style and intraoffice relationships, I concluded that the authors were onto something. Plus, a finding from a 20,000-person survey is probably worth paying attention to.

    I am a grandmother. I don’t just admit it, I am proud of it. My first grandchild was born when I was 55, which is relatively young for American professional women, but I had four children by age 30. I also run an investment firm.
