Burned out employees tend to be depressed—and they’re usually make those around them depressed, too. They can easily change the mood of everyone around them. A dangerous chain-reaction starts that can destroy even the best team.

    The typical burn-out runs through six different phases:
  1. increased engagement in work, tendency to make themselves irreplaceable
  2. decreased engagement in work, negative attitude toward work and co-workers
  3. playing the blame game, depression, aggression
  4. loss of creativity, motivation, and efficiency
  5. becoming mentally, socially, and emotionally withdrawn
  6. insomnia, deep depression, stomach problems

Do you live to work or work to live?
