Episode 9: How the “hyper-achiever” could lead to burn-out in medical lab leaders

Who will help the lab leaders who are burnt out?

Are we only focused on just a few of the challenges and are ignoring what could become a bigger problem?

In this episode of eLABorate Topics podcast Lona Small talks about how the “hyper-achiever” could lead to burn-out in medical lab leaders.

Lona explained hyper-achiever as a saboteur, referencing Shirzad Chamine and his research and New York Times bestselling book Positive Intelligence.

Lona went into ways the hyper-achiever lies to individuals and creates stress and overwhelm.

Lona discussed 3 ways lab leaders who are hijacked by the hyper-achiever can weaken this saboteur and reduce the stress and overwhelm

1.       Connect to self through introspection and use of PQ reps
2.       Disconnect from the outcomes
3.       Develop a habit of more frequent mental fitness breaks and introspection

Lona discussed the above steps in details and demonstrated the PQ reps.
