Imagine a life where your first instinct isn’t to check your email, expecting a crisis to greet you.
There are leaders who walk into the office on Monday morning and stop to ask their team how their weekend was, knowing they didn’t spend any time in the office.
There are employees who excitedly burst into offices filled with ideas on ways to improve their systems and serve their customers.
Imagine being part of a team that you understand their strengths so well you are able to assign them a task and trust it will be done efficiently and on schedule.
That “hustle” and “push” mentality has no place in a work environment where everyone is focused on a singular goal and knows their role in the outcome.
There are workplaces that do not rest on the shoulders of their leaders.
Is yours one of them?
Why are you here?
A recent study showed that nearly 60% of leaders feel depleted at the end of the day.
Here are just a few reasons why leaders seek help outside of their organizations for performance and productivity challenges.
I want to help create a generation of leaders who know how to utilize their team and ask for support.
2. Burnout Prevention
If you’ve ever experienced that restless exhaustion, you know why CEOs are among the most likely candidates for experiencing job frustration and burnout.
As a fellow high performer, I’ve accepted many leadership roles over the years only to fall into the same cycles of frustration, isolation, and overwhelm. For years I thought it was a skill problem, so I studied harder. I did more research. I worked longer hours. None of it helped.
Leaders need more than strategy and skill. They need to trust the people around them and have the confidence to make decisions and follow through.
