There is another issue hiding: those who work out care about their image so they will be less abusive to subordinates. This is in addition to working out reduces personal pressure of bosses.
Because bosses who hit the gym tend to be less abusive to their employees. That’s according to a study in the Journal of Business and Psychology.
The researchers also had supervisors fill out a different survey, about their stress levels and weekly exercise. And, as the authors expected, the more stressed-out supervisors were, the more their employees felt belittled by them. But the employees felt better about bosses who exercised, whether it was yoga, cardio or weight lifting. And just one or two days a week did the trick.
