Book Description: Job burnout is something that doesn't simply go away â€” especially in a chaotic economy. It is a kind of job depression caused by feelings of powerlessness, the loss of control over one's work. The effect can be devastating. The victim dreads going to work. Productivity falls and life becomes increasingly difficult. Burnout is stressful, but it is not caused by stress. Going on a vacation provides relief until the vacation is over and one must return to the job. Overcoming Job Burnout describes how burnout can take hold and how to turn it around. Dr. Potter offers eight proven strategies for increasing personal power and renewing enthusiasm for working. A combination of inspiration and instruction, this updated, revised edition is filled with practical advice, based on the author's years of experience in this field, that readers can implement immediately to renew that sense of engagement and excitement that makes working worthwhile.
