If you’re facing burnout, you need the right tools. A squirt gun doesn’t cut it. You need a fire hose pointed right at the source of the flame. That’s what we give you in Extinguish Burnout: A Practical Guide to Prevention and Recovery. Whether you read the book or take the online course, you’ll find the tools that you need to understand and extinguish burnout in yourself and others.
The World Health Organization (WHO) recognizes burnout as an occupational phenomenon. We recognize burnout as a natural outcome of high expectations. Whether it’s at work, at home, or in your social circles, you can become burned out, and it’s not because you’re not good enough. Burnout has nothing to do with good enough, capable enough, or stable enough. Burnout shows up when we feel like we’ve got nothing left to give.
Organizations can influence the conditions that may lead to burnout, and they can help employees climb out of the pit of burnout – but they’re not solely the cause. There’s no blame to be found on either side of the fence. There’s just an opportunity to get better that comes with understanding how burnout works and what everyone can do to stop it.
