Who hasn't suffered at one time or another from exhaustion, cynicism, and a lack of effectiveness? But combine them over time and you're flirting with disaster of catastrophic magnitude -- burnout. Elegantly defined as the depletion of personal agency -- the apparatus driving our ability to initiate and execute actions -- burnout effectively wipes out our ability to be effective, much less engaged. And the cost of burnout is astronomical in all its forms and phases, not to mention the profound and lasting effects it has on employees and workplace cultures.

Based on extensive research and full of real-world stories and examples, workplace culture experts Rob and Terri Bogue take a deep dive into the signs, sources and solutions of burnout and deliver an essential resource that helps anyone identify, prevent, and recover from burnout.

About the Authors

Rob and Terri Bogue help improve workplaces, manage organizational change, and develop talent and between them have authored more than two dozen books on a variety of technology and work-related topics.
