Raise your hand if you’re burnt out from talking about burnout?


I have read at least 3-4 Harvard Business Review articles on stress and burnout - and yet, we have a major mental health crisis on our hands which is not getting any better. We are facing a constant struggle between hustle culture and the self-care “be kind to yourself”albeit well-intentioned movement. Society portrays the two desires - hard work and hustle - as though they can’t co-exist. If you are working late hours, then you must not be taking care of yourself. If you are clocking out right at 5pm, then you must not be working as hard as the others - and kiss goodbye to that promotion. 

Admit it – who hasn’t asked “what does he actually DO all day?”

Why do we go off on these tangents? What even is hard work? How many times have you judged someone else for how hard they work? Or been judged yourself?

The notion of eat, sleep, hustle, repeat that we see imprinted on almost every mug at Homesense is an outdated, useless, and unhelpful model for leaders in the workplace to follow.

In this special micro-course, for a commitment of 20 minutes each day, (and well worth it!) we are going to unravel the Hustle Paradox. We are going to take a deep dive into the facts about hustle vs hard work, we are going to discuss why boundaries are often ineffective and we are going to embrace our inner fortitude in an intention-fuelled way.

Because, as a Leader, you are ready to: 

  • Challenge outdated belief systems about hustle and hard work.

  • Embrace the truth about self-care and boundaries that make actual sense

  • Take clear, decisive, and meaningful action towards your career aspirations.

  • End the relentless parade of burnout misinformation, shame, and guilt.

  • Stand up for conscious leadership that integrates the personal and professional parts of how we show up at work.

At the end of this micro-course, you will know how to: 

  • Move from a “hustle” to a “hard work” mindset…and actually love it.

  • Make sense of your struggle to moderate or find balance at work.

  • End the internal back and forth dialogue to choose between “taking care of yourself” or answer more emails.

  • Discern between faux self-care and true self-care.

  • Embody a mindset of "sustainable success" that will help you create the career you actually want.
