How can a leader influence burnout?

What if you were doing something that was praised all-around but was bad for business, your health, the people around you and your employees?

In this episode of Driving Leadership, Mike, Shaun and David talk about burnout: how our culture supports what we do that causes it, how it hurts and practical things that you can do to heal and keep it at bay.


SP: “It’s all these things and if we aren’t grinding or hustling, it’s not moving the needle – and that’s a complete fallacy.”

MM: “We are an accomplishment-driven society, especially for the younger folks who got participation awards for showing up and breathing.”

DF: “If you’re a leader, you need to stand in the face of our culture that normalizes overwork and help those people that you serve limit their load.”
