Our root belief that "Nothing is created alone" is important now more than ever, as small channel teams try to accomplish more with less. We're passionate about supporting channel leaders and their teams so they can achieve their goals without burning out. This passion led us to coin the hashtag, #endchannelburnout.
Prevent channel burnout: Meditate
Burnout happens because we build up stress. We don't take breaks, listen to ourselves, and create spaciousness in our schedules. This is why every year we host a World Meditation Day event. The goal is to help you be more productive as channel leaders (and less stressed). To learn more and pre-register, visit our event page. No experience necessary!
You'll also be eligible to receive special content geared toward stress reduction.
Allies as a Burnout Prevention Strategy
Are the disconnects between men and women in the channel contributing to burnout? Would being/having an ally make a difference? What would that look like for you personally?
We’d like to explore these topics in the future and create the space to learn about allyship. (We might even come up with new and exciting ways to support better communication among us and recognize those who step up in this area.)
To end channel burnout, we have to prevent it
- What channel burnout is & why it matters
- Warning signs you could be headed toward burnout
- What to do about it, starting now (aka 3 pre-burnout practices)
This week, today, and everyday!
We like these 2 lessons from Okta CEO Todd McKinnon's actions because they play a role in our goal to #endchannelburnout:
"First, your employees will not feel free to use their vacation time to the fullest unless you model that same behavior. Second, you must treat vacation time as an investment in their well-being, thus in the company's well-being. In making a personal appeal, as opposed to letting HR handle the matter, McKinnon made it clear that time away is more than a benefit; it is vital to the company's long-term health."
So important to do this!
Some challenges we see however are: bandwidth to think, hammer/nail, etc.
