Featured episode – How to Use Boundaries to Avoid Burnout
Burnout is a topic that’s becoming so prolific because so many of us are EXPERIENCING IT! Burnout is a state that is at the end of the road of a long continuum. There are ways we can intervene to reduce the chances of ourselves becoming burned out, but we have to recognize it first.
I’m thrilled to be diving into that very topic today.
Today we’re speaking with Dr. Cassandra LeClair. She is a communications and relationships expert, motivator, author and podcaster. With a Ph.D. in communications studies and specializing in women’s and gender studies, Cassandra is an expert on communicating feelings, setting boundaries, and improving connections. She enables high-achieving women to understand their identity and communication practices to improve their relationships with friends and family, in the workplace and beyond.
On this episode with Dr. LeClaire, we dive into burnout—how to know when you’re burned out and what the precursors are. We also dive into the role that boundaries play in burnout. Wow, are they important! We also discuss how to figure out our needs and communicate them to others. And finally, we talk about the role of our behavioral patterns in our burnout cycle.
