Are Your A-Players Burning Out?
Let’s talk about you. How are you doing with managing your stress? Right now, world events bring a lot of anxiety and stress, and we are still recovering from the COVID pandemic and its impact on our businesses. In addition, I from hear from many of you that hiring continues to be a challenge and that you are doing everything you can with a “lean and mighty” team. It is important to do a check-in with yourself and your team, especially regarding burnout.
