Greetings Jana,

What a year! We’ve just arrived in November, and the silly season awaits. It’s a great time for taking stock of 2019 achievements and start goal-setting for 2020. From tips on beating burnout, to mastering the art of “quiet” leadership, we have you covered with some empowering reading before we head into the summer period. There also is an opportunity for you to participate in some exciting upcoming events and register for our Mentoring or Leadership Program.

So – enjoy the sunshine, think positively, keep learning – and most importantly, stay hydrated for the remainder of 2019!

Festively yours,

The FitT Team

Megumi Miki On Being
‘Quietly Powerful’

A quieter approach to leadership, when deliberate and purposeful, is empowering, inclusive and uplifting for those around them. It is different from the traditional ‘hero’ leadership that relies on the single confident leader that knows everything, dominates and directs everyone.

Beating Burnout

While you are busy building your career, it can be easy for the working day to extend well into the night and weekends. There is a growing body of scientific evidence that long hours at work are a direct contributor to serious health problems – so it’s critical to find the right balance between work and well-being. Read tips on ‘Beating Burnout’ from Paxus here.
