What’s the burnout cause you’re working to reverse in your work? One of the Big Myths is that burnout is due to overwork… but research suggests otherwise!

Just think about your own experience — you’ve probably had time when you work SUPER HARD and didn’t feel burnout. Why? Most likely, you had these key factors in place:

Feeling agency — Control/Autonomy

Feeling valued — Reward/Recognition

Feeling support & belonging — Social Support/Community

Feeling significance that your work matters — Meaning/Purpose

Notice there are FEELINGS connected with these foundational human needs. In other words: Burnout is due to emotional needs not being met.
