Publisher's Summary

You'll never think about productivity the same way again!

Are your employees feeling exhausted, cynical, or just tuned-out? Do they frequently check their phones in meetings, and seem especially uninterested to hear about the next important organizational change? Are they working harder but getting less done? Ill too often or for too long? These are some of the classic warning signs of disengagement.

In a perfect world, work should do so much for us. It should lend us purpose and a sense of meaning, offer us structure and stability. But invariably, something goes wrong - many employees have to pull themselves over the fence each day at a job that is burning them out.

Employee engagement and burnout were declared in a state of “crisis” and the biggest concerns for employers in 2017. And we are right to be concerned. Disengagement comes at the yearly cost of $550 billion to the US economy. But it’s not just our economic prosperity that’s at stake. The study presented in Burnout to Breakthrough shows an alarming correlation between disengagement and the following three health predators: depression, obesity, and suicide.

Here, Ina Catrinescu draws on cutting-edge neuroscience, and integrates social psychology and organizational science to reconsider accepted narratives, connect past developments with contemporary concerns, and examine specific management practices within the context of this workplace crisis. She redefines how we understand work and idleness. And the best part? The same turnkey solution that can aid disengagement and burnout is responsible for unleashing our creativity.

Are you ready to get your employees thirsty to create, their minds tickled, and their hearts racing? Then Burnout to Breakthrough is the right book for you.

Yikes!!

Liked the title and the forward but this audio did not resonate with me what so ever.
While there were glimmers of hope with some of the topics mentioned in the book, I found the content to be light poorly supported and delivered with a somewhat patronising narration that gave me flash backs to a terrible date with an amateur ‘beat poet’ many moons ago.
I admit I did not finish the audio, but I did give it three chapters and skimmed a few more to be sure yet no gems were to be found.

Big let down

Interesting wind up, but the solution is borderline communism that suggest people should want less and work less to distribute jobs and income evenly. Nothing really actionable here.
