Weekend Leadership Reading on Wellbeing: 12/11/20

  |   Weekend Leadership Reading Print Friendly and PDF

Weekends are time when things slow down a little. Your weekend shouldn’t be two more regular workdays. That’s a sure road to burnout. Take time to refresh yourself. Take time for something different. Take time for some of that reading you can’t find time for during the week.

Here are choice articles on hot leadership topics culled from the business schools, the business press and major consulting firms. This week there are articles on wellbeing.

From Emma Seppälä and Julia Moeller: 1 in 5 Employees Is Highly Engaged and at Risk of Burnout

“While engagement certainly has its benefits, most of us will have noticed that, when we are highly engaged we can also experience something less than positive: high levels of stress.”

From Sharlyn Lauby: The Relationship Between Ethics and Sleep Deprivation

“According to research led by Christopher M. Barnes of Virginia Tech, people who cheated in an experiment had slept an average of 22.39 minutes less the night before than non-cheaters.”

From Lieke ten Brummelhuis and Nancy P. Rothbard: How Being a Workaholic Differs from Working Long Hours — and Why That Matters for Your Health

“We generally assume that working too much is bad for our health. But what exactly is unhealthy about this is unclear. Is it working long hours that increases our risk of developing health issues?”

From Tara Parker-Pope: The Power of Positive People

“Are your friendships giving you a boost or bringing you down?”

From Scott Eblin: What to Do When You’re Feeling Exhausted

“So, that raises a practical question – what do you do when you feel exhausted? I’m not asking for a friend; I’m asking for myself.”
