Do your employees hate Monday mornings, lose mid-week motivation, and appear to be working just for the paycheck? It's most likely because your employees are burnt out. Employee burnout occurs when employees feel exhausted at work. It is a psychological and physical condition that emerges from continuous stress or extended work hours.

In this episode, Burnout and Meaningful Work Expert David Shar describes the whole about workplace burnout – what is it, what causes it, and how can a leader fix it? He goes on to discuss how to find a deeper purpose in your work and how to develop passion and significance in your job role. He also emphasizes the importance of encouraging managers to conduct work-life balance conversations. He claims that we can easily avoid burnout for most employees in even the most high-pressure conditions by creating a praise-driven workplace in which individuals are encouraged to be efficient rather than a fear-driven one.
