How to turn out burnout

“Burnout can get the better of you, even when you have great passion for your work. Burnout often results from a misalignment of input and output; you get burnt out when you feel like you’re putting more into your work than you’re getting out of it. Sometimes this happens when a job isn’t rewarding, but more often than not it’s because you aren’t taking care of yourself.”

9 reasons good employees quit

“It’s pretty incredible how often you hear managers complaining about their best employees leaving, and they really do have something to complain about—few things are as costly and disruptive as good people walking out the door.

“Managers tend to blame their turnover problems on everything under the sun, while ignoring the crux of the matter: people don’t leave jobs; they leave managers.

“The sad thing is that this can easily be avoided. All that’s required is a new perspective and some extra effort on the manager’s part.”

Network that network network

“So it all starts with networking. The problem then becomes: Where should you start?

“Having a network of strong working relationships across your organization can connect you with hidden information, resources, and opportunities to help strengthen your network. Having a great network also makes it easier to get your job done, influence outcomes, and gain buy-in more easily, three critical skills every emerging leader should possess.

“Who, then, do you look for when it comes time to network? To maximize your time while you expand your network, consider starting with The Five Key People You Need in Your Network:”

Grit! It’s not just for square-jawed ruggedly handsome Western heroes anymore

“It turns out that intelligence might not be the best indicator of future success. According to psychologist Angela Duckworth, the secret to outstanding achievement isn’t talent. Instead, it’s a special blend of persistence and passion that she calls ‘grit.'”
