New research from Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University (RSM) suggests that leaders who feel powerful are more likely to share personal information about themselves at work. However, leadership roles can make individuals particularly susceptible to experiences of loneliness, which is often overlooked in discussions about leadership and well-being. The research recommends measures to foster stronger connections between middle managers and senior managers, encourage reflection on leadership expectations, grant managers more decision-making power, and promote discussions about loneliness in organizations to address this issue.
