Even the most successful business leaders can find themselves in a rut. Routines and practices that have worked well in the past can actively work against you as you strive to reach new personal and professional goals. These routines and practices need to be reviewed, updated, and sometimes replaced as responsibilities and goals change. It is important to avoid complacency and challenge yourself to go beyond your comfort zone as you strive to achieve new leadership levels. Intentional leadership is a style of leadership that allows you to overcome these types of barriers, unleash your creativity, and reach your full potential as a leader.
It's important, that if you find yourself in a rut, you actively look to get out of the rut. Have you ever heard of the term "burnout"? Many think that the term refers to a busy schedule, or just too much going on. A recent Forbes article examines the research of Christina Maslach. Maslach is the author of "The Truth About Burnout" and established the "Maslach Burnout Inventory" which identifies six mismatches which could lead one to the burnout state. Read the full article here. The six mismatches are:
1. Lack of Control
2. Insufficient Reward
3. Lack of Community
4. Absence of Fairness
5. Conflict in Values
6. Work Overload
