Worries about leadership among highly educated professionals: Associations with career aspirations and personal work goals. We investigated how highly educated professionals’ worries about leadership roles relate to their career aspirations and personal work goals. Altogether 1151 professionals without leadership positions participated in the survey study. Participants with a high number of leadership-related worries were not planning to pursue leadership positions. Instead, their goals included increasing personal well-being or ending
their career. Vice versa, participants with least leadership-related worries strived for career advancement. These findings indicate that worries about leadership should be acknowledged in education and training programs and in career planning, so that worries would not prevent motivated and suitable individuals from seeking leadership positions.
