  • How to identify burnout in yourself and others
  • Why the culture of pushing ourselves to the limit is so unhealthy
  • How workplaces can change to support their staff and stop this kind of thing from happening
  • How we can all take responsibility for our health & well-being (without losing our jobs)

This is a MUST to listen to or watch!
