Burnout has reached epidemic proportions in the modern workplace. But did you know that burnout has a “boomerang” effect that can keep you burned out?
In this 7-minute “mini” video, I’ll discuss one of the most interesting findings in my research on burnout during organizational change: residual burnout. Even if you remove yourself from situations that contributed to your feelings of burnout, it takes an average of 2 years to fully recover from its deleterious effects. During these 2 years, new events can trigger responses that pull you right back into burnout. When this happens, full recovery from burnout might take even longer.
