Burnout is a pervasive social problem in the United States. It leaves workers feeling exhausted and overwhelmed. In some cases, it can even cause death. Psychologist and Stanford University graduate Jacinta M. Jiménez believes today’s organizations need to do more than just treat the symptoms of burnout – they need to learn to prevent it altogether. In this practical text, Jiménez offers tools to stop burnout before it begins. The key, she argues, is to foster resilience on both an individual and an organizational level. With her science-backed “PULSE” practices, you can learn to lead a more purpose-driven life and support your team members’ well-being.
