Overcome Workplace Burnout Through Effective Leadership

Workers around the world are experiencing higher levels of burnout than ever before. A Harvard Business Review survey of 1500 respondents in 46 countries found that 89% of respondents said their work life was getting worse, and 62% of people who were struggling to manage their workloads had experienced burnout “often" or "extremely often" in the previous three months. Burnout can be a costly problem for employers, as it leads to increased sick days, lowered productivity and higher employee turnover. To resolve burnout and prevent it in the future, managers must assess the underlying causes and commit to improving the situation long term. During this session, we'll discuss how leaders can prevent workplace burnout, cope with stress, and improve work/life balance for themselves and their teams.
