Sidekick Sessions: Beating Burnout

Most of us have probably felt burned out at some point in our work careers, but what exactly is burnout, what causes it, and most importantly, how do we avoid it in the first place?

In this episode of Sidekick Sessions, Kristin Graham joins the team for a fascinating discussion that will equip you with tools to identify, prevent, and recover from burnout.  

Kristin has led communications and culture at some of the world’s biggest companies. Now, she’s on a journey to learn and share what she learns to make work better through her podcast, Fewer Things Better, and Unlock, a consulting company offering smart, simple solutions for organizations and busy professionals who want actions, not theory, on how to do fewer things better. 

Our WORKP2P sidekicks are Alysse Bryson, VP of community development; Tamar Medford, show producer; Elan Olsen, creative sidekick; Libby Sundgren, content development manager; and BEATS WORKING host Mark Wright. 

This episode is packed with tips and ideas to help you work smarter and live life on your terms.
