What is quiet quitting and what can you do about it?
Quieting quitting is a broadly used and mostly misunderstood term for “not quitting your job but quitting the idea of going above and beyond.”
Quiet quitting is a term that might scare the bejesus out of you if you are a business owner or leader looking to grow your company, beat the competition, and increase your efficiency and productivity. But frankly, it’s just a trendy term for something that’s been happening for a long time: low engagement at work. People are burned out right now, working long hours at jobs that don’t give them meaning, and they are quitting what some call “the hustle culture.”
In this week’s episode of Reflect Forward: Advice From a CEO, I discuss quiet quitting and advise on how you can address it by creating a culture where people find purpose and meaning in their work and head off burnout before it sets in.
I also share my thoughts on why you shouldn’t quiet quit your job and instead use it to fuel your growth, find out what you don’t want to do with your career, muster the courage to talk to your boss, or move on to find a job and company that fills your bucket rather than depletes it.
Question of the Week
This week’s question came from an audience member during a recent keynote speech I gave. She asked, “Kerry, how did you overcome your self-confidence issues?”
Whew, that’s a loaded question but a good one. And the answer comes down to pushing myself outside of my comfort zone to prove to myself that I could in fact, do hard things and bounce back when life punched me in the face. Have a listen to find out more!
