Burnout & Your Boss
How to have those tough conversations
Burnout can be a difficult topic for employees to bring up in the workplace for several reasons. First, there’s still a stigma around asking for help at work, whether that’s needing additional support on a project taking a mental health day. In addition, everyone processes experiences differently, so what might feel like a good challenge for you may feel overwhelming to someone else.
"Asking for help can be hard, but it's necessary," said Jaya Koilpillai Bohlmann, founder and chief consultant at Designing Communication. "Each of us has the responsibility to manage our own experiences at work."
