In today’s episode, Laura welcomes licensed psychologist, Dr. Rebecca Eldredge. Dr. Eldredge supports clients and organizations through coaching, facilitation, speaking engagements, and group programs to strengthen their emotional well-being so they can pursue effective change-making without sacrificing their own wellness, their teams’, or the clients they support.
It is often the case that we don’t identify or even think of burnout or compassion fatigue until this picture of complete overwhelm is upon us. One thing that is helpful to notice is the subtle shifts in your mood, your emotions, and your perceptions. At times we can find ourselves in a state of emotion and intellectual exhaustion from processing so much information because we care so deeply.
Listen until the end of the episode to learn how leaders can identify burnout and the costs of pushing through that burnout, the need to take care of the changemakers in organizations, and more!
