Why You’re Still Exhausted After Getting Tenure (And What To Do About It) [Re-release Ep 96] 

Are you still exhausted after getting tenure and don’t know why things haven’t changed? Feeling like you’ll never not be tired? I’ve got 3 steps to take to help you take control.


If you are exhausted, you are doing too much. You might have thought that gaining tenure would help, but if you’re like so many of the academics I work with, you have probably discovered just the opposite! After pushing so hard, for so long, a lot of people crash after receiving tenure. 

You might be grateful for the stability of tenure (and hopefully a raise!) but in order to make a positive change in how your career feels, you’ll need to make some changes in how you approach it. Tenure doesn’t automatically solve your exhaustion problem, but with intention, you can.

This progression of episodes is a series of re-releases of our most popular episodes about the Post-Tenure Experience. Today’s episode is a re-release of episode 96 of the podcast. You can find episode 96 full show notes here.

We thought this re-release would be perfect, because we are getting ready to enroll our post-tenure into mid/late career program, Elevate

Elevate is a 6-month program that runs from February – July, 2023. We want to give you time to find out information about the program and decide if it is right for you, so we are opening enrollment SOON. 

Elevate is an application-only program that centers on the 1:1 coaching experience. You’ll experience 1:1 calls, group calls, and workshops in our Elevate program. 

Go back and check out the replay of the live info session where we answered so many questions about what the program looks like, how to enroll, what to expect, and more!
