This episode is a re-release of a 2020 conversation our host, Leslie Morse, had with Brandi Olson about burnout. We revived this episode because of its original popularity as well as because the content is incredibly relevant.
Listen in as Brandi and Leslie explore how to recognize burnout in ourselves as well as in our organization, how it’s all about prioritization (whether proactive or reactive), and whether having grace within our team can prevent burnout in the first place. Join the conversation online with #WomenInAgile #SmallGoodThings

Brandi Olson works at the intersection between learning, organizational agility, and human-centered design. She says: “We put people in a position of having to choose between doing good work and their humanity, and in most cases that’s a false choice.”

About our HostsLeslie Morse is an agilist at heart. She was leveraging agile practices and appreciating agile principles long before she even knew what they were. Her agile journey officially started in 2010 and she never looked back. Her career has taken many twists and turns. She led a digital marketing start-up in college, was involved with replatforming Lowes.com while they adopted agile practices, provided training and coaching for agile transformation across a wide array of industries, and now serves as a Product Owner for Scrum.org. She is trained in Organization and Relationship Systems Coaching (ORSC) and has been involved in the Women in Agile movement since its original inception at Scrum Gathering 2013 in Las Vegas.

Emily Lint is a budding industry leader in the realm of business agility. Energetic and empathetic she leverages her knowledge of psychology, business, technology, and mindfulness to create a cocktail for success for her clients and peers. Her agile journey officially started in 2018 with a big move from Montana to New Mexico going from traditional ITSM and project management methodologies to becoming an agile to project management translator for a big government research laboratory. From then on she was hooked on this new way of working. The constant innovation, change, and retrospection cured her ever present craving to enable organizations to be better, do better, and provide an environment where her co-workers could thrive.
Since then she has started her own company and in partnership with ICON Agility Services serves, coaches, and trains clients of all industries in agile practices, methodologies, and most importantly, mindset.
