Burn Brighter - Not Out! (With Scott Anderson)
A few weeks back, I spent some time with Scott Anderson of DoubleDare Coaching, and we unpacked a critical consideration for leaders regarding workplace burnout. This is a critical conversation we need to talk more about. With permission, listen in to our conversation on Signature Live in May of 2023. Segment begins at 2:27 into the show.
Workplace burnout is a common problem that affects many employees in different industries. It is a state of emotional, physical, and mental exhaustion caused by prolonged and excessive stress at work. Burnout can result from a variety of factors, such as heavy workload, lack of control over work, unclear job expectations, and poor work-life balance. It can also lead to a host of negative outcomes, such as decreased productivity, low morale, and poor job performance.
To prevent burnout, taking breaks, setting realistic goals, prioritizing tasks, and seeking support from colleagues and managers is essential. By doing so, employees can maintain their well-being and achieve optimal performance at work.
