In the fast pace of modern business, overwhelm is a common occurrence in all types of organizations. Overwhelm happens when a team is overextended and by definition it is not a sustainable way to operate.

The challenge for leaders is to recognize whether overwhelm is a temporary state and will correct itself with the passage of time or is the sign of other issues that will not go away.

In our experience, leaders that are slow to deal with overwhelm find themselves on a slippery slope that increase the risk that their teams will experience a major breakdown that could  cost unprepared leaders their careers.

In this episode, we explore the telltale signs that a team has moved from overwhelm to chaos, and how a leader can avoid getting dragged into a crisis situation.
