Keep your fire alive – burning for a cause without burning out

When people who are committed to a cause go beyond their own performance limits, a burnout can occur. Since burnouts have different phases, many of those affected don’t realize until late that they’re in a vicious circle. Effective strategies for reducing stress and building up resources can break this cycle and thus protect against burnout.

Resilient Leadership

Balanced and healthy employees are more effective in coping with a challenging work situation. Leading one-self and employees successfully even in times of stress and uncertainty are important tasks for managers. 

Mindfulness and Self-Compassion

Mindfulness and self-compassion are two of the most important self-management skills. In addition to the benefits for effective stress reduction, these skills also help to cope constructively with uncertainties and changes as well as to discard old behaviour patterns and to learn new habits.

Positive Stress Management and Well-Being

The key to deal with stress in a more relaxed way is not to avoid, but to understand, accept and re-evaluate stress. The stress response is more than an outdated fight-or-flight response or maladaptive behaviour to modern challenges. 

Distance Leadership

Working from home is becoming the new normal. Managers are required to motivate the team and lay the foundation for productive work.

Self-Organization in the Home Office

Working from home can be of great benefit, but it also has its pitfalls.
