Burnout? Turnover? Tired or tatty teams?

We’ve spent the last decade researching and designing practical approaches that get right to the heart of the problems. You’ll notice we said problems, not problem.

There are three key problems to address – and three opportunities for making a meaningful impact on wellbeing and performance under pressure.

We call this the ‘triple responsibility’ approach to resilience at work.

Here we outline the problems and link you to practical approaches to address them. With our background in cognitive science, we’ve worked hard to design solutions that get to the heart of the problems but are simple to plug and play. When the pressure’s on, no one needs things to be harder and more complicated than they need to be.

Individual

The challenge: The knowing-doing gulf

There‘s a yawning divide between knowing the importance of self-care and being able to put these things in place under pressure. Knowing it isn’t the same as doing it. For mission-driven people in particular, prioritizing self-care feels uncomfortable and near impossible.

“I was told how important looking after myself would be. I heard it but couldn’t do it. If I could go back and change one thing, it would be to find a way because I can’t wind back the clock to get my marriage back or reverse the health impacts.”

Suggested approach:

Success involves moving from good intentions to getting intentional. Hope is not a method.

Team

The challenge: Tired teams become a source of stress rather than support

A team has immense power to support or undermine each other’s wellbeing. Let’s face it, we’re rarely at our best selves when we’re tired. When a whole team has been working under pressure, it’s common for teams to become tatty or for the wheels to fall off.

“We rallied together initially, but as time wore on and tiredness kicked in, we split apart and that impacted both us and the work.”

Suggested approach:

Empower teams with practices to work well and pull together under pressure.

Organization

The challenge: Self-care isn’t enough

Asking people to practice self-care and then loading them up for too much for too long just does not work – we risk harming even the most resilient and capable of people. Ill-equipped leaders and organizational factors are leading contributors to burnout.

“When the canary in the coalmine falls off its perch, the answer usually isn’t a stronger canary.”

Suggested approach:

Equip leaders with actionable insights and practices for leading teams under pressure and address the preventable organizational factors that contribute to burnout.
