The World Health Organization considers burnout an 'occupational phenomenon', not a medical condition. They describe it as "a syndrome conceptualized as resulting from chronic workplace stress that has not been successfully managed". Its symptoms are exhaustion, "increased mental distance from one's job", negative feelings and cynicism related to work, and "reduced professional efficacy". In other words: burnout makes us miserable, hard to work with, unproductive and it impacts the team culture.
Ever since the era of COVID started, wellbeing at work has become a top priority for many organizations. Professionals are finding themselves on the edge (or in the midst) of burnout.
In this workshop, you will...
A great session on assessing and preventing burnout for ourselves and our teams. Important any time of the year, and especially important in the pandemic times we're currently in. Excellent tips on how to recognize the different types of burnout, and different types of rest that we all need. I highly recommend the folks over at PeopleStorming, the sessions were great and they kept us engaged the entire time, which is no easy feat.

Wellbeing is one of the things we've been talking about most at the leadership level. It's always something that comes up in the town halls and from our employees. The advice from your workshop was really interesting and refreshingly different from many of the things that we've heard on the subject.

I like that the workshop got to the point and kept things moving. A lot of interesting and helpful things were covered. It felt different than the typical things you're told in these sort of seminars - which I really appreciated. I found the tips shared impactful. They felt genuinely useful. I'd definitely recommend it to others. You'll learn the signs of burnout and how to approach dealing with them in a realistic way.
