What we don't know about burnout ... but should!

Feeling the effects of burnout?  You’re not alone.

The statistics are sobering. The impact is tragic.

A McKinsey survey recently revealed that 3 out of 10 workers are experiencing burnout. Gallup’s State of the Workplace found that 19% of employees are miserable. The WHO recognizes burnout as a worldwide crisis.

While employers often associate burnout with lost productivity, absenteeism, and turnover, the ultimate cost is much worse. Are employers doing enough? What can they do better to help extinguish burnout?

This week’s guests Terri and Rob Bogue, authors of Extinguish Burnout, share why stress is like a payday loan, why depression is a close cousin of burnout, and tips to grow personal agency that deters feeling burned out.
