Burnout insights for all occasions…

Whether you bump into an occasional sense of burnout, looking to prevent it, or in the thick of it, knowing there’s a place to go for insights is amazing! What impressed me the most is the wide array of perspectives from qualified professionals and how they prevent, cope, and alleviate burnout. You can scan the episodes for whatever you think best reflects your specific situation or interest. And who better to curate the lineup, than Dr. Burnout herself!
