A good leader shouldn’t let someone burn out if they see it. “What are you doing?” “Working 7 days a week.” “I think you should stop let’s rethink the approach.” “I don’t want to.” “Ok. It’s your fault then.” That’s not real leadership. A more direct and thoughtful leader would have stopped this and engaged a conversation about the root problems, and put in place a plan to fix them while it’s happening. This article shouldn’t be about Rick, this is common. It should be about the conversations and actions between the team and leadership.
