Dr. Caneel Joyce talks with guest Erin Rocchio about wholeness and one of the biggest issues that moves us away from it- burnout- in part one of this special two-part episode of Allowed: Conscious Leadership and Personal Growth. They discuss the factors that contribute to burnout, including the mismatch between a person and their environment, and offer six levers that can support well-being in the workplace. They also explore the symptoms of burnout and the phases that people go through, as well as the need for leaders to prioritize their own needs in order to be effective. Additionally, the connection between burnout and wholeness is discussed, and three self-guided coaching tools are offered as a means of prevention. The conversation ultimately emphasizes the importance of creating spaces where people can be their whole selves and flourish in all aspects of their lives.
The Enneagram is a powerful tool that provides valuable insights into our personalities and behaviors. It helps us understand our motivations, fears, and patterns of thinking, enabling us to navigate our lives and relationships more effectively.
