WHAT ARE YOU NOTICING IN YOURSELF AND OTHERS?

1) DECREASED COMMUNICATION: 

Cynicism, defensiveness, or withdrawal in colleagues’ interactions can indicate burnout. Similarly, feeling disconnected or avoiding conversations may signal burnout in yourself. Open communication is crucial for maintaining a healthy work environment.

2) DECREASED MORALE AND MOTIVATION: 

Disengagement or lack of motivation? Low morale and motivation are common symptoms of burnout, both in yourself and others. If you or your colleagues seem less enthusiastic or engaged than usual, it’s a sign that it’s time to reassess.

3) PERFORMANCE AND PRODUCTIVITY CONCERNS: 

If you’re noticing a decline in the quality of work, it could be a red flag for burnout. Similarly, struggling to stay focused, meet deadlines, or maintain productivity may indicate burnout in yourself or your team members. Decreasing productivity and performance are key indicators of stress and burnout.

4)  RETENTION CHALLENGES: 

Rising absenteeism, stress-related leaves, or employee turnover may signal deeper issues within the workplace, including burnout. Pay attention to patterns of behavior such as frequent sick days or sudden resignations, as they could indicate burnout in yourself or your colleagues. 

By recognizing these signs early and taking proactive steps to address burnout, you can create a supportive work environment where everyone can thrive. Remember to prioritize self-care and open communication to prevent burnout and promote well-being for yourself and your team.
