Battling Burn-Out As A Community Manager
Being a community manager comes with days you are burn-out with work and it becomes overwhelming.
In my opinion, it can be seen as a relatively new role there remains a lack of clarity around job and expectations, and some lacking clear job descriptions.
The key is to look after yourself long term. Develop the behaviours to deal with challenges you face as a community manager.
Take the time to step away from daily tasks to develop:
• A clear role definition and perhaps an elevator pitch to share with stakeholders.
• A personal development plan, including non-technical skills and business skills to boost competence in your work.
• A community strategy, if you don’t have one.
• A strong network of supporters and perhaps even find a mentor.
