Instead of abruptly leaving a job, “quiet quitting” refers to doing what the job requires, no more and no less. Essentially, it means not working outside of routine working hours without additional compensation; no emailing while on vacation, no responding to messages on Sundays and no off-the-clock meetings. Then, there are the leaders who penalize or ignore employees in hopes they’ll leave of their own accord, called “quiet firing.”
Low-conscious leaders do not model vulnerability, champion open dialogue, welcome diversity of perspective or encourage self-care within their workplaces.
