Stress-reduction tips for bankers – by elite Asian headhunter who teaches yoga (by Simon Mortlock)
Are you feeling frazzled by your bad bonus? Is your job search still stuck despite the supposed revival in recruitment?
If you want to react better to the stresses in your banking career, you should consider taking up yoga, says Fabrice Desmarescaux, co-founder of DTCA Executive Search Partners in Singapore and weekend yoga teacher.
Desmarescaux knows a thing or two about how stress can take its toll on bankers – until recently he ran the financial services practice for Asia Pacific at elite search firm Spencer Stuart and was before that head of Southeast Asia financial services at McKinsey & Company. But after 15 years of practicing yoga and 18 months of teaching it, he’s also an authority on stress reduction.
