The aim of the article is to analyze the organizational hazards that managers must contend with today. The author concentrates on five danger areas that may serve as a warning to prospective and current managers. Firstly, the profession of manager is packed with stress, where informational overload has become one of the most dangerous stressors of recent years. Secondly, a skyrocketing imperative to strive for success, irrespective of any negative consequences, is causing managers to take the path of 'toxic' success. Thirdly, there is the growing readiness among managers to take up 'extreme' jobs. Fourthly, an increasing number of managers suffer from 'job burnout' as well as work addiction-workaholism. Fifthly-the most tragic consequences-there are cases of death from overwork. Analysis and reflection on this map of managerial hazards facilitates a distancing from changing organizations and their requirements.
