  22. 23. Too much to do? Take on More 4. Don't patronize; don't add on. This might be hard if you feel like you're in a tough spot, too, but you don't need to agree with what they're saying. You just need to convey that you hear what they're saying. 5. Offer specific support / help. Maybe they're dreading a conversation with someone & you can offer to intervene on their behalf. Maybe you can help them out in a personal way like grabbing lunch for them when you get your own, saving them the trip. This is how, a great, productive team operates.
  23. 24. Too much to do? Take on More Why can't we take small steps at work to share an individual's load in the interest of the well-being of the team? I'm still super busy. I still have all these obligations that are hanging over me. Nothing material has changed. And yet everything has changed. Because even though I'm singularly responsible for achieving my obligations. Somehow, I don't feel alone in them.
