Jan 23, 2024    Tim Webb, Megan Butler

Navigating leadership responsibilities in a Christian context can sometimes feel like walking a tightrope, with the constant pressure to avoid mistakes, the weight of past traumas, and the challenges of a potentially hostile environment. Burnout, a state of emotional and physical exhaustion, can creep in when these pressures become overwhelming. As a Christian leader, finding ways to prevent Burnout is crucial for maintaining a healthy balance in your life and effectively serving others.

 In this first part of the episode, I am joined by Meagan Butler, a Christian leader dedicated to helping other leaders navigate, overcome, and prevent Burnout, exploring simple strategies to help you steer clear of Burnout, allowing you to lead with resilience and grace. She talks about the three scales of Burnout, the impacts of dysfunctional and hurting leadership, and how the baggage everybody brings to the ministry contributes to Burnout. She also shares the internal and external factors that contribute to Burnout. Tune in to learn more!
