    Let's Talk Burnout: Finding Our Way Back to Being Well and Leading Better

    Let's Talk Burnout: Finding Our Way Back to Being Well and Leading Better

    In this episode, Mitch McKinney and Mark Montemayor discuss the problem of leader burnout. They identify core issues such as a lack of margin and a misplaced identity. Often, the perpetuation of a lack of margin is driven by a results-oriented mindset and pressure from others' expectations. 
    They emphasize the importance of knowing when enough is enough and finding grounding in personal rhythms and Sabbath rest. The consequences of leader burnout and moral failures have a significant impact on individuals, relationships, and the perception of faith by those outside the church. They encourage leaders to seek help and take time to evaluate their well-being.
