How to identify burnout and help employees overcome it

In this video interview, Jonathan Malesic, author of The End of Burnout, explains why he became an accidental burnout expert, and how you can support your staff.

Jonathan Malesic had his dream job, but he was miserable. Exhausted. Lacking purpose. Burned out.

He tried taking time to recharge, but it didn’t work. No amount of duvet days or mountain walks made a difference. Within weeks of going back to work, he felt as bad as ever.

So, Jon took a bold leap: he quit his job – embarking on a quest instead. He wanted to know: why did he feel like this? More importantly: what could he do about it?

The result is his new book, The End of Burnout: Why Work Drains Us and How to Build Better Lives. It’s a fresh, innovative guide to the misunderstood and dangerous workplace scourge that is burnout.
