In today’s ever-changing world where we are expected to do more with less and be everything to everyone, we need to put proactive measures in place to prevent poor mental health and promote wellbeing by giving people the skills and resources to better manage their own mental health and thrive.
Focusing on our strengths promotes confidence and the desire to keep improving. We perceive more control over our lives and feel much more capable of identifying situations that would previously have worried us. It even makes us feel excited about the future, all because we can focus on and use our strengths.
Unchecked habits create the conditions for burnout. Managers constantly demanding of their talent create the conditions for burnout. Those talented people pushing themselves constantly to prove their worth create the conditions for burnout and yet a few small changes to our habits can make burnout less likely.
