Burnout: What it is & Why it Matters (Part 1 of 2)

Burnout is a widespread problem, but it’s more preventable than many people think. In Part 1 of my two-part series on burnout, I talk about what burnout is and how to think about it.

Today, I talk about burnout. I give a preview of what to expect from this episode and its counterpart. I share the three characteristics of burnout, and I talk about the risk factors of burnout both in and out of the workplace. I also share a helpful analogy to help you visualize the concepts I discuss.

“Awareness precedes change.”
– Dr Mark Rowe
