Anticipating, Preventing and Surviving Burnout
IntroductionIn today's increasingly competitive economy, managers and their teams need to learn how to target the energy invested into ensuring the success of their business and careers.
High performance at work will only have a limited impact on success if efforts are not focused on the right areas and are not appropriately recognised and valued.
Although burnout is now a recognised psychosocial risk, for many it remains a taboo:
- What are the early signs of burnout?
- How can I spot these signs?
