A comprehensive, coach-yourself guide for busy, burnt-out leaders to take back control of flexible working arrangements and find balance in an overworked world. Despite the promise of a post-pandemic ‘reset’ that would make flexible work practices mainstream, it seems that overwork is here to stay. According to leading executive coach and psychologist, Dr Karen Morley, overwork is driven by ambitious, competitive and over-confident bosses who chase continuous growth and are prepared to sacrifice their own health and wellbeing, and that of their workforce, to achieve increasingly unrealistic targets. Remote work or not, this hasn’t changed.High achieving, conscientious and agreeable leaders, the lifeblood of organizational success, get caught in the slipstream. In a world where overwork remains an expectation, flexible work has not been the solution we had all been hoping for. Rather, it has just blurred the boundaries between personal and professional life. It’s time for leaders to take better control of where and when they work – a concept the author refers to as ‘flexAbility’. Flexibility is how the system operates, flexAbility is how to operate in this demanding system.FlexAbility is a comprehensive guide for leaders seeking to take back control and redefining their approach to work. It’s about rediscovering why they do what they do and where work fits into their sense of purpose, so they can better align their work practices to suit their lives. In a world where more workers have burnout than don’t, and feelings of anxiety are increasing, FlexAbility is a life-changing resource that every leader needs.
