The Burnout Pandemic
The topic is burnout and the guest today is psychologist and professor Michael Leiter. Michael has been researching organizational psychology for nearly twenty years now, and there’s naturally a large body of invaluable work he has produced - some listed below.
His expertise today couldn’t be more relevant. Now is a time when we’ve all been facing economic uncertainty. For those who still remain employed, putting in extra hours to protect our businesses is to be expected. But there are consequences, and this is what we discuss.
