Executive functioning and getting enough rest are vital parts of emotional self-care that leaders struggle with daily often due to the high demands of their work.  And yet many nonprofit leaders don’t recognize that focusing on improving their emotional self-care,  can lead to an improvement in their and executive functioning skills and positively impact their work and their personal life.
