Burnout In Leadership: What It Does & How To Avoid It

Employers are fighting to keep their employees happy and healthy, but are they doing the same for themselves? 

Managing the day-to-day challenges of a remote workforce, while watching your best employees leave, is a recipe for stress and anxiety. As a leader, you feel the responsibility to serve, support with positivity, and have answers to all uncertainties. Contrary to popular belief, the stress in leadership is often highly addictive, so much so that leaders fail to understand they’re even experiencing it. But even if your mind refuses to acknowledge it, your body at some point does. 

In this webinar, Amplify Voices Award-Winning Chief Content Officer Audrey Cavenecia will talk about experiencing high levels of unidentified stress herself, how it changed her perspective of work and life, and how it taught her to feel her inner self more. She will walk you through various examples and experiments to teach you the good and bad aspects of stress and how to train your mind to handle it the way it should.

In this webinar, you will learn:

  • How to leverage your body’s stress mechanism to enhance your performance as a leader
  • Why leadership is a high-pressure job and is more demanding than is thought about commonly
  • Why women experience stress differently than men and why it’s hard to identify when you’re going through it
  • The psychological disorders resulting from high-stress conditions and why it’s observed more in women than men

“Around leadership, many of us experience this sort of heightened aggression, to be in control, to force a result, a self-flagellation, we’re just really, really hard on ourselves.”
