In this episode, Jordan and Wendy discuss:

  • A critical practice for stopping burnout

  • Mental fitness

  • Practices to help leaders work more effectively with others

  • Taking care of your mental health is necessary

Key Takeaways

  • Implement a “pause practice” that brings calm focus into your work and personal life.

  • Taking care of your own mental fitness and mental health isn’t a luxury but a necessity in today’s volatile, complex and uncertain environment.

  • Positive intelligence is the ratio of positive versus negative emotions you experience in a day. Empathy, love, creativity, purposefulness, joy, and patience are all examples of positive emotions.

  • Mental health and mental fitness are two different things but working on your mental fitness could help in dealing with issues in the space of your mental health.

“You have to start with yourself. What are you doing to take care of yourself in creating these pauses practices - it's not even optional anymore. It's like brushing your teeth. ” — Wendy Swire
