Mankato, MN, March 09, 2015 --( In a recent issue of Manufacturers’ Pain Points, a weekly e-newsletter, sponsored by PDP (People Driven Performance) Solutions, it was suggested there may be a strong correlation between poor manufacturing leadership communication and sleep deprivation.

It is a big problem for manufacturing C-level executives. The anxiety revealed in the newest research shows that C-level manufacturing executives said they were losing sleep due to labor conflicts and the distinct perception they were less than effective in communicating with plant floor workers. This sleeplessness impact decision-making and pushing late into the night is a health and productivity killer. According to the Division of Sleep Medicine at the Harvard Medical School, the short-term productivity gains from skipping sleep to work are quickly washed away by the detrimental effects of sleep deprivation on mood, ability to focus, and access to higher-level brain functions for days to come. The negative effects of sleep deprivation are so great that people who are drunk outperform those lacking sleep.
