Executive Training With the MASHPLAY™ Framework

As part of my 360 degree marketing service, I offer executive training to teams, utilizing our MASHPLAY™ framework. For a brand to thrive, the staff must be engaged, with a sense of mission, purpose and accountability. We partner with your team on exercises to help them get into a successful mindset with productive habits that show through in their work. The end result is that they enthusiastically deliver results that are on brand, and they’re less likely to burn out. Take a look at the MASHPLAY™ framework below. Feel free to buy my book, Back After Burnout which includes many of the exercises we rely on for in-person group training.

The MASHPLAY™ Framework

MASHPLAY™ stands for: Mindset, Acceptance, Symptoms, Habits, Purpose, Leadership, Accountability, and Yourself. Brands need highly engaged teams that live and breath the company mission. Prevent burnout, and inspire your team by registering for our MASHPLAY™ executive training program.

(M) Mindset

The main driver for burnout recovery and prevention is a positive mindset. But rather than viewing everything through rose-colored glasses, you focus on amplifying the positive influences in your life. Mindset development begins with knowing yourself and aligning every aspect of your life with your core values. It means that you stop comparing yourself to others and focus on growth. It means shattering the limiting beliefs that get in the way of your success and taking ownership of your life and the outcomes of your thoughts and actions.

(A) Acceptance

Acceptance has many dimensions. First, you must accept that you are burned out and that it is a severe problem. But it also means that you must accept yourself as a complete human being, flaws and all. Once you do that, you can welcome happiness and growth into your life and at work.

(S) Symptoms

In addition to accepting your state of happiness and the life you want, you must get better at identifying the symptoms of burnout, the stressors that amplify those symptoms, and the people in your life who have either a positive or negative impact on your recovery. At work you can use this information to shape how you interact with other team members.

(H) Habits

People often don’t accomplish their goals because they don’t put enough emphasis on habit building. Instead, they focus solely on the outcomes that appear over time. Set goals, but make them achievable and sustainable. Replace bad habits with good ones and you’ll naturally have more structure to your work day.

(P) Purpose

To thrive in the office, you must find purpose in your work. You must discover or rediscover your passions in and out of work. It means seeing work as a way to pursue those passions, either on the job or because your work gives you the income and flexibility to pursue your dreams outside the workplace. Additionally, align your purpose with your company’s mission for the best at-work experience possible.

(L) Leadership

Leadership applies regardless of the stage you’re at in your career. You will encounter good and bad leaders and must recognize whether their style matches your personality. Then, you must either adapt to work with them, shape them into better leaders, or both. Additionally, you need to grow as a leader, first in how you lead yourself and then in how you lead others. You must overcome bad programming and develop your communication skills so that people want to follow you. It also means that when you recover you pay it forward, create space, and mentor others to grow into leaders themselves.

(A) Accountability

Growth is sustainable when you pair it with accountability. You must be accountable to yourself to do well at work, and to prevent burnout. And, you should hold yourself accountable to others. You might have friends, family, coworkers, or a coach who can hold you accountable for achieving your goals. You can also keep yourself accountable, knowing that your success in achieving your goals directly impacts others. Better yet, enroll in our program for expert accountability.

(Y) Yourself

The most critical aspect of healing is to focus on yourself. Some people describe this as putting your oxygen mask on first or filing your cup before you fill others. Your recovery depends on being just a little selfish about doing what’s in your best interests. Know that when you are better, you will be better for the people around you, too. When people in your life distract you from your recovery, they probably mean well. Still, if the outcome isn’t to move you closer to recovery, you will need to make hard decisions in the short term for a better long-term future.
