Use this Tactic to Avoid Burnout

APRIL 12, 2017
Sometimes being good at your job can feel like a pie-eating contest where the prize is more pie. You know the feeling: The more you show you can handle something, the more you become “that person.” Every time that job comes up, it falls to you because “you’re the best at it!”

This is doubly true for new managers, who often feel the twin pressures of excelling at their own jobs while simultaneously delivering the best results from their team. I can’t think of how many times I’ve seen a new manager, especially a woman, do the team’s work or at least finish it because she knows she will do the best job, and results are ultimately what matters.

This is a recipe for burnout, not strength.
