You don't become a CIO / CTO / CISO / CDO without being able to deal with stress.

At every stage of a technology career - from early days "in the trenches" to a leadership position in the boardroom, you've dealt with high pressure, mission critical initiatives - and major decisions that impact every aspect of the enterprise.

You've learned to deal with the stress and the pressure to get your job done.

And that's a good thing.

But that ability to manage - or ignore stress can be a real downside for your future career.

Because you may not notice how frustrated, unhappy, dissatisfied - or angry - you about significant aspects of your current position.
