Burnout is costing us more than we think, but new research has emerged that shows empathetic leadership can help prevent burnout. My guest today, Davida Ginter, helps leaders and organizations prevent burnout so they can scale impact. We talk about how leaders can better sustain themselves and set boundaries to avoid burnout. We discuss how you can start building a practice of emotional resilience to better face adversity, and we bust some myths about empathy and self-care that could be getting in your way of success or even your physical health.
- When we suffer and don’t cultivate self empathy, we aren’t giving more empathy to other people, it only means that our energy will be depleted over time.
- When we maintain our boundaries, we can still respect others, and we can also respect ourselves.
- It is not a matter of finding time, it is a matter of prioritizing time. We need to prioritize ourselves and take time for ourselves to avoid burnout and build our resilience.
“It’s not egoistic to take care of ourselves. It is exactly what will help us maintain our well being and also allow us to serve other people.” — Davida Ginter
