Self-control separates homo sapiens from our ancient ancestors and animals. It's what keeps us in charge of keeping a healthy balance between our desires and rationality. It prevents us from overeating, substance abuse, and helps us perform better at school and work. Freud said that self-discipline is the essence of civilized life. But, how does having a high-level (or low-level) of self-control impact our work?

While leaders with high-levels of self-discipline have shown to have more effective leadership styles as you can imagine. And while we've always know it, a study know proves how leadership declines with low-levels of self control or discipline.
