Did it ever occur to that with everything you’re doing at work, maybe you’re doing too much? And this could lead to burnout?
Did you know that there’s a secret weapon that can protect you against this?
In todays show I discuss several things including:
- Why you may be headed towards burnout
- How slowing down can support your inclusion goals
- Your secret weapon against burnout and much much more
Here’s some of what I share in the show:
The Three Types of Burnout
I explain how there are three types of burnout employees experience but only one is widely reported and thoroughly analysed:
“There are 3 types of burnout: exhaustion, cynicism, and inefficacy. I won’t go into each one here because when people talk about burnout in the workplace, they generally mean emotional exhaustion”
The Reason why Employee Resource Group Members are Prone to Burnout
I explain why those involved with employee resource groups are more likely to experience burnout:
“My experience is that people within employee resource groups are massively susceptible to emotional exhaustion. One of the key reasons is identity work”
Your Secret Weapon Against Burnout
I describe the counterintuitive secret weapon that you can use to protect employees against burnout:
“The argument is that to decrease burnout you need to increase engagement.
This is where you can rely on the secret weapon that you didn’t know you had: Employee resource groups”
To continue the conversation, get in touch or leave a message, we would love to hear from you in The Resource Groups Community, that’s also where you can access a slide deck that summarises everything that we talk about on the show.
