From Burn-out to Boundaries


Burn-out is defined in ICD-11 as follows:

“Burn-out is a syndrome conceptualized as resulting from chronic workplace stress that has not been successfully managed. It is characterized by three dimensions:

  • feelings of energy depletion or exhaustion;
  • increased mental distance from one’s job, or feelings of negativism or cynicism related to one’s job; and
  • reduced professional efficacy.

Burn-out refers specifically to phenomena in the occupational context and should not be applied to describe experiences in other areas of life.”  – 

  • Are you a nonprofit professional feeling the burn of burnout?
  • Are you considering joining “The Great Resignation”?

I have worked in the nonprofit world for more than 20 years as a consultant, employee, chief of staff and director. I know what burnout is. I have witnessed it and have experienced it first hand. 

  • Are you neglecting your family, friends and self-care for the “cause”?
  • Are you having physical or emotional health challenges due to stress?
  • Are you feeling underpaid or undervalued?
  • Do you feel like you are drowning in work and can’t ever get caught up?
  • Are you feeling unmotivated?
  • Are you full of anxiety?

You are not alone! I am here to help you get through this phase.
