How can we as leaders help our team members if they are feeling burned out?
As leaders, while we don’t like to admit it, we can sometimes be the cause of employee burnout.
The good news is that while we might be the cause (or at least a small part of it), we can ALSO BE the solution.
Because as a leader, it’s our responsibility to understand its existence and help reduce it.
And in today’s episode, I am giving you specific tips to help you do just that.

Burnout levels at work are on the rise. Bruce Daisley found that folks were quitting their jobs with no plan because the uncertainty was better than their current situation. Bruce is the author of Eat, Sleep, Work, Repeat: 30 Hacks for Bringing Joy to Your Job. He shares with Kevin that seeing unhappiness at work firsthand led him to want to figure out how people could connect with their jobs again. At the end of the day, regardless of where you work and your title, satisfaction from doing a good job is the same. Leaders need to get real about burnout. Bruce’s hacks are a result of science, research, data, and psychology. He shares what he discovered and offers examples to help give our work more meaning and find that joy.
In this episode, Bruce shares ideas about 1. The digital sabbath ad norms of engagement. 2. Social meetings. 3. Depersonalizing criticism and feedback.

Four-hundred years ago Francis Bacon presented the scientific method, where the workhorse is the experiment. Now is the time we move experimentation beyond an engineering process. We need to think about it as a corporate discipline. Kevin is joined by Stefan Thomke to discuss his latest book, Experimentation Works: The Surprising Power of Business Experiments. Leaders face uncertainty throughout their organizations. This includes the rollout of new products to customer satisfaction to marketing. They need to move past their prejudice, bias, and observations and test against reality for greater success. Stefan shares examples of large-scale experiments and why he thinks this should be mainstream in all businesses.
In this episode, Stefan discusses 1. Business experimentation and examples. 2. Myths of experimentation. 3. Cause and effect.

As a leader, there is a lot on our shoulders and much is asked of us. In my blog posts, emails, articles and even here in this series, I remind you regularly of the responsibilities that we have as leaders.
But today, I’m not talking about any of that. I am talking about encouragement and I’m giving it to…YOU.
