Lead, Inspire, Grow - with Raven Waterman

Apr 6, 2022

Let’s discuss burnout and how to combat it before it takes a long-lasting toll. We all have different thresholds of how much we can manage before we are overwhelmed, and feelings of exhaustion arise; sometimes, we are already in that space before we realize it. As a professional, you may carry responsibilities and lose a sense of purpose in your work. That space can signal that you are experiencing burnout.

In this episode, we’re discussing a shared experience, burnout, that many can encounter in their personal and work life as things build up. When reaching burnout, what you experience in different career fields can contribute to depletion in motivation over an extended amount of time and the internalization of others’ issues. While it is essential to show up as a professional, it is also vital to show up for yourself as a person when needed.

We are breaking down:

  • Defining burnout what factors contribute to it
  • How it presents itself in professional experiences
  • What is compassion fatigue, and how do both co-exist
  • Importance of self-care and what you can do to take care of yourself better

When imagining burnout, do you see yourself or other people? Is it time for a change? Sometimes we need to understand ourselves as a machine, and we need to pay attention to what helps us run efficiently, even if that means shutting these down for some time before going into overload.
