Burnout is the inability to manage work and life demands that exceed your ability to cope – is often due to diminished resources: diminishing time, mental and energetic resources, and often a consequent diminishment in the willingness to invest the effort needed to complete tasks. This webinar will explore different ways that people try to cope with feelings of burnout and specific actions you can take to beat the burnout blues.
