What Is Burnout? (Webinar presented by Dr. Geri Puleo)
Burnout is like pornography: most people know it when they see it…but might have a difficult time describing exactly what it is.
Since first identified by Freudenberger around 1980, the experience of burnout has led to a variety of definitions — and the debate in academic research still continues. This “mini-webinar” (approximately 6 minutes long) introduces 3 different definitions of burnout: as a 12-stage process, as the result of 3 components, and as a journey.
Watch for the next webinar in this series, Profile of a Burned Out Worker: The 10 Warning Signs of Burnout, on Wednesday, March 18.
