Connecting The Dots Between Leadership And Wellbeing

“In order to be good leaders, we need to be able to give people and organizations our best. Unfortunately, it’s impossible to give our best when we’re depleted, exhausted, burnt out, and stressed. This leads to lower engagement, reduced productivity, and overall a poor professional performance.”

How To Overcome The Loneliness Of Leadership During The Coronavirus Crisis

“As a leader, you are often alone. You can’t always express doubts to your boss because you don’t want them to doubt you. You can’t always express your doubts to the people you manage because you don’t want them to know you aren’t sure of yourself.

“None of us want to be wrong. But, what if we are? What if we make a bad decision—something that negatively impacts our business, our team, our culture, or our future for years to come? What if we pick the wrong side? What if the conspiracy theorists are right? What if we are, in fact, a conspiracy theorist? All these questions are bouncing around in our brains and yet, we’re supposed to be the people—the leaders—making the ‘rational’ decisions for our organizations.”

“We don’t tend to think of the workplace as a place where we need to overtly work with trauma. Trauma belongs in the domain of mental health. It belongs to your therapist, and not your leadership consultant or your executive coach. But here’s the truth: adults spend most of their time at work. We are at work more than we are with our loved ones, in our leisure activities or our civic activities. Workplaces need to become places where we not only grow and develop—they also need to be places where we can heal and repair what has been hurt.”

“The fact that close to one in four employees across the nation feel pressured to act unethically and are afraid of speaking up means that many businesses might sit on a ticking time bomb. While the unethical actions of their employees may go undiscovered for some time, the risk inherent in those actions for the business and its leaders is explosive. And that is something that should keep leaders awake at night.”
