The burnout

Year after year, burnout rates are rising alarmingly. This is not only true among older workers; the percentage increase is even higher among millennials. Quite a few misconceptions circulate about the causes of burnout: it is a consequence of too high a workload, of the boundary between work and private life disappearing, only perfectionists fall prey to it... In all the stories Gert Braeken listened to professionally, he recognised a common denominator: when people are not respected by others in their personal values and they lack the skills to respond to this appropriately, there is a real chance that they will develop burnout symptoms.

In The Burnout Vaccine, he makes his thesis clear using testimonies, experience, facts and scientific research and sets out to find a vaccine. It turns out that certain personality types are more prone to it than others, but also that that science, greater self-insight and certain skills such as engaged confrontation can arm you against burnout.
