Vivid Leadership: Managing a hefty workload – and avoiding overwhelm

This information was sent to Ways2Work by another organisation. For more details please use the contact details or links in the post below.

This information is taken from the Vivid Leadership e-newsletter.

Often when I’m coaching non-profit sector leaders and fundraisers, they use words such as ‘overwhelm’, ‘never-ending’ and ‘relentless’ when reflecting on the sheer volume of work they’re wading through. I’m always curious to know what the answer to this is.

Do we simply accept that feeling like we’re drowning under the workload is all part and parcel of working for a charity?

Personally, I don’t think that should be the case – and have found a different way.

In my latest blog, I provide 10 practical tips to help you to manage your large workload without it taking a negative toll on your well-being. These suggestions can help you create working habits that allow you to thrive in your role.

Take a look and see which ones you are tempted to try first. Enjoy experimenting with them and observe the impact they have on your mindset and approach to your to-do list:
