Do you secretly cringe when you hear the word 'resilient'? But you need your team to be resilient, rather than falling apart at the slightest knock. What can you do to lead your way through the resilience backlash, why has it become such a dirty word, and what's the antidote?

In today's episode we'll cover:

  • Why there's a not-so-quiet backlash against resilience
  • How resilience becomes toxic
  • Why this is one of the two biggest predictors of burnout
  • The 3 pillars of burnout & how they contribute to toxic resilience
  • What's the antidote? And how could you make a start on that today?
