Episode 2:
Not waving but drowning

If you’ve ever felt that you can’t bear to look at your to-do list, found yourself hiding from co-workers, or unable to shake off thoughts of work to enjoy your weekend, then it’s pretty likely that you’re in the grip of overwhelm. A recurring topic in our coaching sessions with educators is the joyblocker of overwhelm. Sustained overwhelm is likely to end in burnout so no wonder 44% of teachers and leaders intend to leave the profession in the next 5 years. This episode looks at what makes overwhelm such an epidemic in education and how you can start to tackle it.
