Vacations and Burnout: Why Aren’t Employees Taking Time Off? (Webinar Presented by Dr. Geri Puleo)

Vacations, paid time off, and even unpaid time off are benefits given to employees – but over 33% of workers don’t take advantage of it.  While there are many reasons why 169 million vacation days are unused, studies have shown that there is a distinct advantage to companies when their workforce actually uses their vacation time.

This 8-minute “mini” webinar discusses some common reasons for unused vacation days, but (more importantly) argues that employers who encourage their workers to take time away from work achieve some significant bottom line results in their overall performance.

By the way:  the latest trend is for companies to offer unlimited (or unmonitored) vacation days to their workers.  Maybe it’s time to take that long overdue vacation!

Why Change Is Chaotic: How Transformation Leads to Chaos (Webinar Presented by Dr. Geri Puleo)

Many people believe that all change is inherently chaotic…but is it?  Transformational changes tend to be more chaotic due to the difficulties in navigating the transition period from what “was” to what “will be.”

This 7-minute “mini” webinar discusses why change and transition are not the same and how you can take the first steps to minimize your feelings of change-related chaos.

Job Burnout: Should you stay…or should you go? (Webinar Presented by Dr. Geri Puleo)

Job burnout is reaching epidemic proportions – but the fatigue associated with burnout is not cured by having a good night’s rest.  According to my findings in the B-DOC Model, the vast majority of people leave their current stress-producing work situation in an attempt to find a less toxic work environment.

Is your stress at work bad enough that you are considering leaving your current employer?  It’s a difficult decision.  This 7-minute “mini” webinar introduces 3 fundamental questions to help you decide whether you should stay…or whether you should go.

The choice of where you work is ultimately yours.  I urge you to explore these 3 questions in depth in order to make the best decision for you.

The Real Costs of Burnout (Webinar Presented by Dr. Geri Puleo)

Too often, burnout is considered to be an individual’s personal problem relating to his or her maladaptive response to stress.  Recent research has shown, however, that organizations considerably influence the degree of stress experienced in their workforces.  What is often not considered, however, are the financial costs that the organization must pay when their workers are burned out.  Unfortunately, there are few tools used to calculate these costs.

Previously I introduced some calculations in my mini-webinar, Why Burnout Matters.  In this 16-minute “mini” webinar, I’ll share some additional calculations to help you determine the real costs of employee burnout in your organization.  Some of these costs are direct, while others are indirect.  Considering the incredible expenses associated with burnout, isn’t it time that your organization steps up to the plate by taking proactive steps to stop burnout in its tracks?

Burnout During Organizational Change: The B-DOC Model (Webinar Presented by Dr. Geri Puleo)

Are there specific steps that occur prior to burning out?  Are there certain benchmarks that you need to meet in order to recover from burnout?  Are you more susceptible to future burnout if you’re still recovering from a burnout?  According to my research, the answer to all these questions is a resounding “yes.”

In this 8 ½-minute “mini” webinar, I’ll discuss burnout from the perspective of employees who have experienced it when their companies underwent transformational organizational change.  But more importantly, these steps seem to be replicated even if the burnout isn’t change related.

Burnout: The Silent Trap That KEEPS You Burned Out (Webinar Presented by Dr. Geri Puleo)

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” webinar, 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.

What REALLY Works to Recover From Burnout (Webinar presented by Dr. Geri Puleo)

Although it’s always best to avoid burnout, what can you do if you already feel burned out?

In this 11-minute “mini” webinar, I’ll share 9 common and not-so-common strategies to break out of the burnout cycle.  Since everyone is different in terms of their burnout symptoms and the causes of their burnout, there is no “magic bullet” for recovering from burnout — however, I did find one “sure fire” remedy that was used by over 90% of the participants in my research to drastically reduce their feelings of burnout.
