What is burnout?
Burnout has been described as the erosion of the soul: a cross between helplessness and hopelessness and a mismatch between the requirements of the job and the abilities of the employee. Burnout can be the result of stress, low morale, poor working conditions, or simply having too much to do and not enough time to do it. Burnout occurs at every level of an organization from the mailroom to the boardroom. It commonly occurs amongst helping professionals like teachers, nurses and social workers but it also occurs amongst salespeople, customer service people, factory workers and white-collar executives.
Burnout victims often start out as rising stars.
The profile of an employee who burns out may surprise you: It is often the rising stars within an organization, whose burning ambition is fueled by idealism, dreams and the desire to really make a difference in the world. While no one is completely immune from burnout there are steps you can take to prevent it.
