How poor communication and burnout can be linked
You might be scratching your head about this week's topic, but let me ask you this.
How often have you burned the midnight oil or perhaps missed your child's soccer match because you were RE drafting an urgent paper?
Or, perhaps you aren't writing a paper then, but rather doing things others should have done because you were misunderstood?
This topic led me to speak with Dr Sharon Grossman or ‘Dr Burnout' as she likes to call herself.
Today I'd like to provide access to the recording and also check in to see how you are doing with the number 1 ‘anti burnout strategy' that we offer in the program.
Preview the recording
In this conversation I discussed three traps which I hope you are starting to avoid in your communication.
- Shorter is better – not always
- The main message is better kept to the end – no!
- A list of topics = a great structure
While these might now seem foundational to you, I think you'll enjoy the conversation and get some good ideas out of it.
Check in to see how you are doing (and take you to the recording)
I also encourage you to use it as an opportunity to reflect on your own practice.
For example, how disciplined are you about mapping your thinking onto that single page to get sign-off on the messaging before writing the paper?
Let me know how you are going on this front:
- I am very disciplined about getting sign-off on the one-page storyline before preparing major papers
- I am somewhat disciplined
- I am am not disciplined
When you click through any of these links you'll be taken to Sharon's podcast and simultaneously, I'll be able to see how you are all faring in this regard.
Have a great week!
