What to do when your leadership comes under fire.
Countless courses are offered and books are written about how to become a good leader. Few however deal with the subject of how a good leader unwittingly, can turn bad. It’s common knowledge that stress is a silent killer and burn-out more than just a warning shot across the bow. Yet, the inability of a leader to recognise, acknowledge and manage stress remains very much a taboo, with catastrophic consequences for his company, career and life.
In ‘Beyond Burnout’, the author introduces the reader to the ravaging, yet often undetected causes and side effects of stress through a brutally honest recount of how his career as CEO of a subsidiary of a multinational abruptly ended after two decades. It left him shattered and without identity and literally beyond burnout. He takes the reader on his journey of recovery and personal growth brought about by a coach, a close friend, whose intervention becomes life changing.
The experience led the author to extensively research what is still a much underestimated relationship between Emotional Intelligence, Stress Management, Human Behaviour and Leadership. In the book, he gives valuable insights and solutions underpinned by the latest developments in Neuro Science.
Illustrated by personal experiences and anecdotes, Beyond Burnout’s authenticity will reverberate with leaders of all walks of life. It offers a unique way out to those who are consumed by stress and find it increasingly difficult to find fulfillment in their jobs and happiness in their lives.
