In this book Michael P. Leiter and Christina Maslach, the leading experts on job burnout prevention and authors of the landmark book The Truth About Burnout, outline their revolutionary new program for helping everyone in the workplace overcome everyday stress and pressures and achieve their career goals. Banishing Burnout includes the authors’ unique and highly effective Work Life self-assessment test and a customised plan for action that will help transform the individual’s relationship with work and overcome job burnout.
The authors outline their proven action plan, which shows how to establish core values, set a personal direction, engage other people, initiate a realistic plan of action, make an impact, and achieve career goals. The book is filled with illustrative case examples from a wide variety of organisations, including corporations, health care institutions, universities, and nonprofit organisations. Each case demonstrates how the use of the Work Life self-survey and the individualised action plan can result in dramatic changes in the daily workplace experience and advance career development.
