Finding ways to talk to your event leadership about burnout, can be a struggle when we are under a lot of stress at work. As we are planning events, we can experience overwhelm and burnout from all different directions. Many times, we triage this ourselves, but when the going gets tough it can be helpful to take our situations to an event leader to get feedback and perhaps collaborate on the best way forward in our work.
So how do you talk to your event leadership about burnout? One of the first steps before talking to your event leader is to reflect on your situation. Think through all different areas of your situation, specifics on what the true challenge is, and work out any recommendations for resolutions so that your event leader knows that you’ve thought things through.
After reflecting on your situation, create a few opportunities for enhancement that you can present during your conversation with the event leader. This will open up the conversation in the direction in which you see an effective resolve, but then also allow the leader to collaborate on the solution alongside you.
This episode shares ideas on how to approach your leader and gives key questions that you can ask to really analyze your challenges in a way that is supportive of you and the business.
At the end of the day, put yourself first, don’t suffer from burnout in silence. Do the big thing, and talk to your leader to get the help you need.
