Find Your "Oxygen Mask" to Avoid Leadership Burnout
On 21 April 2021, I was invited to present the research findings of our recent projects about leadership burnout (collaborate with Matylda Howard, Edi Lopes Mclnnes, Carol Kulik, & Michelle Tuckey) at the Non-Profit Leadership Conference. Over 160 CEOs and senior managers participated in the event.
We have made several suggestions for organisations:
Organisational leaders need to know how to protect themselves before helping others.
Healthy and energised leaders are usually more effective.
Organisaitonal leaders need to be aware of their energy level and take necessary actions to get their "oxygen masks".
Good leaders/managers are "good eggs" in organisations, and they need to be protected from being exhausted.
