Embracing Your Stuckness- How to Make the Most of a Midyear Slump

Are you feeling stuck in a midyear slump, struggling to find motivation or a sense of progress? 

If so, you’re not alone. Many leaders find themselves in this rut during midyear (and at other times of the year) for a number of reasons. 

However, Gayle Lantz offers a refreshing perspective: What if being stuck is actually a good thing?

In this episode, Gayle challenges the notion that being stuck is inherently bad or unproductive. Instead, she invites listeners to embrace their stuckness as an opportunity for growth and self-discovery. By accepting where you are and not fighting it, you might just find the path forward more easily.

Gayle shares insights on:

  • The common reasons why leaders feel stuck, such as unrealistic expectations, misalignment with values, and negative thought patterns.
  • The importance of realizing that being stuck has something to teach you – it has value.
  • How to shift your perspective and get curious about what your stuckness is trying to reveal.
  • The power of being present and appreciating the lessons in the moments when you feel held back or stuck.
  • Practical strategies for resetting, rethinking, and re-energizing yourself when you need it most.

Whether you’re feeling de-motivated, lethargic, or like you’re not making real progress, this episode offers a refreshing invitation to embrace your stuckness as a catalyst for personal and professional growth. 

Tune in to learn how to savor the stuckness, be at peace with your pace and unlock new insights that could propel you forward.
