At some point in your career, you will experience burnout Dec 3 2013

Having been a victim of burnout, I was looking for a method to help me to avoid or recover more quickly from excessive stress. I delved into Banishing Burnout and found it very helpful.

A psychologist, Herbert Freudenthal coined the term 'burnout'. Burnout is defined in Merriam-Webster's Online Dictionary as "the condition of someone who has become very physically and emotionally tired after doing a difficult job for a long time." This tells us three things 1) burnout is job related 2) burnout is a condition 3) burnout is characterized by stress, depression, cynicism, and hopelessness.

At some point in your career, you will experience burnout. How do you handle the emotional and physical aspects? In Banishing Burnout, by Michael P. Leiter and Christina Maslach, provide a plan that will help you overcome that stress and pressure of the office. This in theory will allow you to be healthy, more productive, and to achieve your vision of success. Michael Leiter is an organizational psychologist interested in the relationships of people with their work. He has recently been appointed a Tier I Canada Research Chair position in Occupational Health and Well-Being. Christina Maslach is an American social psychologist and professor of psychology at the University of California, Berkeley, known for her research on occupational burnout.

If you are experiencing burnout, the last thing you need is to slog through this book. Its main flaw is that the authors fail to recognize and respect the limited control that a single worker has over his or her workplace. For example, in the chapter on respect, the authors suggest that one confront a coworker who has made an offensive joke to educate him or her regarding his or her insensitivity. If that doesn`t work, then tell the supervisor. If that doesn`t work' then file a formal complaint. If these suggestions actually worked, then I`d say you work in a pretty enlightened work place and don`t need this book. More likely than not, however, these suggestions don`t fit your work place, and you are $10 poorer for having bought this book. I would have preferred suggestions that are more within the realm of my control and my abilities than to depend on other people or the company to become more responsive to the problems I am experiencing. Lastly, the quiz that you are supposed to take to categorize the nature of your burnout did not translate well to the Kindle format.
