When our guest today started her career as an educator, 80% of the teachers at her school were new, the result of tectonic turnover resulting from burnout on staff. That experience drove her to leave teaching after just a few years and pursue a career studying educator burnout and the big lesson along the way?
"The more I researched [burnout], the more I realized it wasn't just a pattern in education, but that it was a pattern in health care, social work ... I began to see that it was a nation wide thing. ... Sixty-six percent, two out of three people that you see on a daily basis are burned out."
Dr. Newburgh joins Howard today to share her experience studying burnout and her effort to help high-burnout organizations to create human-centered cultures that are more resilient to overwhelm and stress, higher-functioning, and healthier.
