Overcoming team-leadership burnout

By: Judy Mathias

Editor’s Note

It is time for a break if just the thought of another team presentation is overwhelming, according to a report by Mark Ellis in the June 6 leadchange.

To grow as a leader and get out of this team-leadership rut, Ellis recommends that leaders:

  • Take time off to rest and remind themselves why they are in their leadership positions.
  • Try meditation because mindfulness is something that benefits all involved.
  • Let go of the ideal because the perfect scenario doesn’t exist.
  • Work with team members individually if group scenarios are too stressful.

Ellis notes that all leaders have to go through difficult periods if they are to grow and thrive.
