Stress. Burnout. Beat them both and become the manager you want to be

Mind Tools on-demand resources help you feel in control, calm under pressure, and ready to perform your best.
What is burnout and is it holding you back?
Burnout is a state of physical, emotional, and mental exhaustion mixed with an uncharacteristic loss of belief and purpose. And in today's workplace, it's all too easy to suffer from it. In fact, the percentage of desk workers around the globe saying they feel burned out rose to 40% in 2022.

As a manager, you might be feeling isolated and under continuous pressure: expected by leaders to achieve more with less and faced with negativity within your team as they too feel the strain. Add to that a relentless and overwhelming workload of your own, and it's easy to see why you might "hit the wall".

If this sounds familiar, we've put together a Burnout Self-Test to help you, or someone you're concerned about, to assess the risk. Take the test yourself or share it with a colleague or friend.
Don’t become disengaged, focus on your own development
You’re crucial to your organization and many people rely on you, but Gallup has reported that as opportunities for development aren’t always encouraged at an organizational level, managers have become one of the least engaged groups in the workplace.

But why should your development be put on hold? Don’t wait around and risk becoming disengaged from your role. Empower yourself and take control of your own career learning.
