Friday, Saturday, Sunday... Uh oh. Does the idea of going to work on Monday morning strike fear into your heart? Sometimes work gets so exhausting that even a long weekend doesn’t feel long enough. When you have too much to do, you can’t wrap your head around the tasks at hand, you’re dreading having to meet with co-workers. And the sound of an incoming makes you want to… cry?
We all know what’s going on here… You’re burnt out. But burnout can be avoidable. Or if not avoidable, managed better. In this episode of Work Therapy with Dr. Steven Stein, we chat with Dr. Michael P. Leiter, an organizational psychologist interested in people’s relationships with their work. Dr. Leiter has published widely on job burnout, work engagement, and workplace civility. He helps us get to the bottom of what really causes burnout (spoiler: it’s not just having too much on your plate) and how to avoid it.
