Part 1 of 2

David Allen met with three trainers from our global network, to discuss how GTD can help to reduce burnout. While it has been an issue for years, burnout has been rising steeply since early 2020. The World Health Organization now calls burnout an official medical diagnosis.

It is a result of chronic workplace stress that has not been successfully managed, and is characterized by three dimensions:

  1. feelings of energy depletion or exhaustion
  2. increased mental distance from one?s job, or feelings of negativism or cynicism related to one?s job
  3. reduced professional efficacy

For this discussion, David is joined by Emily Gregory, Morten Rovik, and William Elliott.

Morten shared an infographic on the stress curve. You can click here to download the PDF.
