Michael Kahn, a licensed Maryland psychologist and executive coach, wanted to identify effective strategies for dealing with stress at the executive level.In 2004, he began interviewing more than 60 executives as part of the CEO Stress Project.His findings showed that some executives possessed natural skills for handling intense pressures, and others simply needed guidance for dealing with high levels of stress.He referred to it as the "hardiness factor," or a measure of how well executives performed under pressure."People were already downsizing 10 years ago; now they're expected to do more with less staff so indeed they're feeling the pressure," he said."Some people just don't have what it takes to do it."One executive enrolled in UCSD's mental health program said he found difficulty balancing work with personal struggles.Between a 60-hour workweek with mornings beginning as early as 6:30 a.m. and classes to earn a master's degree in business administration, the man said he was struggling to cope as he battled severe depression.Today, he practices meditation, has modified his medicine and says he hasn't had an episode in at least three months.
