Of course, another vital role of a leader is to galvanise the team and fill them with strength of purpose. But Walker says lack of sleep compromises this ability too. Interestingly he discovered that the amount of sleep a business leader has influences the way their employees perceive them.
Reid Hoffman, founder of LinkedIn, goes further by saying that a leader who has pushed themselves too far, and is running on empty, becomes a "liability" - to themselves, their employees and their investors.
In the end, it's your job as a leader to create an ecosystem where your people can truly thrive and perform at their best. And it all starts with the behaviour you model. So ask yourself, are you demonstrating balance to those working around you? Have you got the balance right? How is it affecting your performance?
