PSYCHOLOGICAL COST OF PROFESSIONAL SUCCESS IN A KNOWLEDGE-BASED SOCIETY VERSUS QUALITY OF LIFE
Languages of publication
The process of realizing psychological costs of career and including them in the natural course of experiencing life is a particularly substantial component affecting the assessment of our satisfaction and quality of life. Feeling of fulfillment as a substantial element of quality of life rate exists only if man fully develops his abilities. Psychological costs contribute to impoverishment of life richness and losses in resources. In the research done on the sample of 243 managers of a medium and high level in the Polish organisations a substantial relationship between the results in all scales of psychological costs and quality of life assessment was observed. The higher the assessed costs are, the higher level of quality of life impoverishment, especially in the ranges of family life and individual development. The selected ones make career, often living a destructive life, they are in the state of continuous eagerness, under pressure of competition and responsibilities, and under illusion that by achieving success they will experience happiness. Nevertheless, the results obtained in the research deny these assumptions.
