In this episode Judith Germain speaks to Stanley J Ward about how to identify cognitive distortion, and what to do about it.
Mavericks face particular dangers in regard to burnout and they need to guard against this. Socialised Mavericks often fight for others in such a way that it can often become a one way street and cause them to suffer intellectual burnout. The hero leader concept is not sustainable, and Stan explains how servant leadership is supposed to work.
Judith and Stan discuss the 3 dimensions of burnout and how low level depression can occur within Socialised Mavericks. When people disconnect from their mission this can cause cognitive distortion. Cognitive distortion can make it easy to become overwhelmed by all the pain in the world. There is a need to choose community over isolation. Their last discussion looks at the rise of toxic leaders.
