How high achievers beat burnout and find freedom in an overworked world
Summary
How to take back control of flexible working arrangements, beat burnout and find balance in an overworked world. Despite the promise of a post-pandemic 'reset' that would make flexible work practices mainstream, it seems that overwork is here to stay. According to leadership development expert Dr Karen Morley, overwork is driven by ambitious, competitive and over-confident bosses who chase continuous growth and are prepared to sacrifice their own health and wellbeing, and that of their workforce, to achieve increasingly unrealistic targets. Remote work or not, this hasn't changed.High achieving, conscientious and agreeable leaders, the lifeblood of organisational success, get caught in the slipstream. In a world where overwork remains an expectation, flexible work has not been the solution we had all been hoping for. Rather, it has just blurred the boundaries between personal and professional life. According to Dr Karen Morley, it's time to take better control of where and when you work - a concept that the author refers to as 'flexAbility'. Flexibility is how the system operates, flexAbility is how you operate yourself in this demanding system.FlexAbility is a comprehensive guide to taking back control and redefining your approach to work. It's about rediscovering why you do what you do and where work fits into your sense of purpose, so you can better align your work practices to suit your life. In a world where more workers have burnout than don't, and feelings of anxiety are increasing, FlexAbility is a life-changing resource that every leader needs
