"Work like this increases my faith that mental health can become an everyday topic of conversation with no stigma attached."
Sir John Kirwan
Are you feeling exhausted, depleted and deflated at work?
Could you, or someone you lead, be on the brink of burnout?
Burnout is costing us. There are the personal costs to health and finances, organisational costs in lost productivity and sick leave, and national costs when it comes to healthcare services and similar.
Following her own first-hand experience, as well as the countless similar scenarios she’s seen in her role as an executive coach, Suzi McAlpine has created a book about burnout to help create environments and organisational cultures that reduce its occurrence.
This book shows you how to recognise the signs of burnout, how to address it when it’s present and perhaps most importantly, how we can reduce it in our workplaces.
