In this episode of The Myers-Briggs Company Podcast, we’re joined by Dr. Christina Maslach, creator of the Maslach Burnout Inventory (MBI), professor of psychology emerita and a core researcher at the Healthy Workplaces Center at the University of California, Berkeley, and author of the new book The Burnout Challenge: Managing People’s Relationships with Their Jobs.
When it comes to the workplace, some occupations have a higher rate of burnout than others. In addition, the pandemic has added new stress and a litany of changes to people’s lives, as well as a lot of changes. Unfortunately, burnout still holds a lot of stigma when people believe there could be negative consequences to admitting that you’re actually burned out. And that often means employees, instead of getting the help they need to mitigate the problem, end up disengaged and leaving their jobs.
Dr. Maslach knows all about these issues, and in this episode of the podcast she shares the biggest hurdles that individuals and companies face when it comes to reducing workplace burnout.
