There are 3 comments on Work Burnout Signs: What to Look for and What to Do about It

  1. What happens when it’s academia causing the burnout. The system itself promotes it. It is a never ending cycle that is rewarded and is worn as a badge of pride. It’s exhausting and disgusting.

  2. We also need to follow the money trail. Investors in neither private nor public companies don’t hold companies to account for ensuring humans can thrive inside the organization and because of the organization. Masawa, the impact fund and platform founded, is working to drive capital to those organizations catalyzing mental wellness and then nurturing that capital by maximizing leaders’ wellbeing and effectiveness, organizational health, and social impact. This is not only good for busy, it’s good for society.

  3. Very good information and article. So glad we are openly reading, writing about and discussing this more often as it’s critical during this time of significant change and challenge. There was a time when very little was mentioned about mental health so I am appreciative that not only is there information being shared but that people are taking close looks at their quality of life and adjusting to better support and preserve their well being.
