5 Things to Do When You Feel Overwhelmed by Your Workload

Do your to-do lists stretch on and on — and on? Do you dread checking email on Friday afternoons, worried about seeing messages piling up when you’re just trying to get out the door? Or maybe you’ve noticed that anxiety is preventing you from concentrating on whatever you’re currently doing. You might feel anxious that you’re not working during times that are incompatible with working, like when you’re buckling your child into their car seat or you’re stuck in traffic. You may even feel anxious about the project you’re not working on when you’re busy plugging away on something else.

Want To Set A Good Example? Adopt These 10 Leadership Habits

The best leaders are servant leaders. What is servant leadership, exactly? It's a leadership philosophy that places the leader of an organization at the feet of its employees, not the head. It's about empowering others to succeed and serving others through development and growth on the individual level. You know a servant leader when they're not concerned with taking the credit, are willing to put in the same hours they're asking of others, and they're just as focused on the person as they are the profession, using organizational challenges to inspire learning. Servant leadership inspires trust, builds bonds and motivates employees to perform above and beyond expectations. Servant leaders lead by example and are more likely to be followed because they inspire belief, hope and confidence. - Robby Scott Berthume, Bull & Beard

As the types of skills needed in the labour market change rapidly, individual workers will have to engage in life-long learning if they are to achieve fulfilling and rewarding careers. For companies, reskilling and upskilling strategies will be critical if they are to find the talent they need and to contribute to socially responsible approaches to the future of work. For policy-makers, reskilling and retraining the existing workforce are essential levers to fuel future economic growth, enhance societal resilience in the face of technological change and pave the way for future-ready education systems for the next generation of workers.

Edward Fernandez's curator insight, July 15, 4:38 PM
