Lead your Remote Team Away from Burnout, Not Toward It

Burnout can happen to anyone regardless of where they are working from. Traditionally, burnout was considered less common in a telework employee because of the home/work balance they could strike. However, with the majority of the workforce at home, there is a higher probability of burnout with teleworkers today.
What can supervisors do to prevent burnout? This Gallup Workplace article suggest setting clear expectations, building trust, and communicating openly and often with employees. Practice showing empathy and compassion to employees that are working from home with pets, children, and/or family all in close proximity. To read more detail about these strategies and others check out the article linked below.

Invest in your Employees’ Wellbeing; You Can’t Afford Not To

Shifting to a majority telework environment has shown that employee wellbeing is of utmost importance to employee engagement. Leaders and supervisors play a big role in supporting their employees, especially when much of our workforce is isolated at home. The below linked article from Gallup Workplace provides some simple suggestions to help with employee wellbeing such as providing employee assistance resources, asking employees about time away from work, and encouraging employees to use their strengths. Check out the short article for more details and resources.

How to Make Rational Decisions in the Face of Uncertainty

Operating in a time of extreme uncertainty can be overwhelming and at times even paralyzing. Take a look at this Harvard Business Review article that describes a four step process to properly categorize data, identify inherent biases, target crucial information for your decision, and create the most useful questions to reach your desired outcomes.
“The four-step process helps us better address our emotional responses, name and confront them, and move forward with a rational decision. We’ll have a more complete picture, reducing the likelihood that we’ll rely upon well-worn thinking pathways and cognitive biases.
Voltaire once famously recommended that we judge a man by his questions rather than his answers. We’ll never know the future, but by examining our data and our thinking we can develop and ask great questions that will allow us to more confidently make decisions amid uncertainty.”

Take Ownership of Your Future Self

The ‘end of history illusion’ is defined in this Harvard Business Review article as the inability for humans to see their future change potential. We know that we aren’t the same person we were 5 or 10 years ago, yet in general we struggle to see how we can change and adapt in the future. Check out this article to get more detail on three strategies to become your ideal future self.
Step 1: Distinguish your former, current, and future selves.
Step 2: Imagine your desired future self.
Step 3: Change your identity narrative.

Change is inevitable — but it’s not out of your control.
