Sometimes we become so focused on the next big project, the next promotion or the latest “must have” item that we forget how important it is to tune into recognising these potential burnout behaviours before it gets too late.
I used to think leadership was all about inspiring others with great storytelling. I now know that leadership is about inspiring others to create their own story. Do you know the story of the people who work around you? Where did they start, where are they on their journey and what’s the happy ending in their mind? What are the obstacles getting in their way, how do your paths connect and what can you do to help them on their journey are all great questions you should know the answers to about the people you lead.
