burnout self-care self-mastery Aug 10, 2023



We’re suffering from a global burnout pandemic and I have not escaped it. I burned out 3 times before I realised that I was the root of the problem – what I believed about work, high-performance, myself and others was at the heart of the choices I was making in my career and the extent of ownership I was taking for my outcomes. Join me as I share the 5 things I have done progressively over the past 5 years to sustainably eliminate burnout from my story.

Topics discussed:

  • What is burnout and what form do you have?
  • My burnout story from J.P. Morgan to McKinsey
  • The problem is me - how I finally broke the cycle
  • The 5 steps I took to recover – and my major discovery about boundaries
  • The 2 mindset shifts we need to make if we want our changes to last
