In this episode, I had a conversation with Tumboura Hill, my friend, and former colleague, about his journey in, through, and out of workplace burnout. If you have the slightest suspicion that you are experiencing workplace burnout, this episode is for you. 

I then found an article titled "The World Health Organization officially recognizes workplace 'burnout' as an occupational phenomenon, " published in May 2019, written by Ashley Turner.

The WHO (World Health Organization) says it is a syndrome resulting from chronic workplace stress that has not been successfully managed.

I cheered this article because I felt that though workplace burnout has long existed, it is rarely talked about and in 2019, it is finally included in the latest revision of the International Classification of Diseases.

My feelings quickly turned into sadness and anger because it is indeed a problem that is rarely talked about and often dismissed or minimized either by the person experiencing it or the workplace that refuses to acknowledge it.  The consequences and impact are alarming, as you will hear in this episode with Tumboura.

May this episode help you stop and assess where you are and bring you hope that there is light at the end of the burnout tunnel.

 

Here for you,

Grace
