Workers at all levels, both white- and blue-collar, feel stressed out, insecure, misunderstood, undervalued, and alienated at their workplace. But what can be done to offset the devastating effects of organizational downsizing, outsourcing, and restructuring? This original and important book debunks the common myth that when workers suffer job burnout they are solely responsible for their fatigue, anger, and dont give a damn attitude. The Truth About Burnout clearly shows where the accountability often belongs ... squarely on the shoulders of the organization. Burnout is shown to be a sign of a major dysfunction within an organization, and says more about the workplace than it does about the employees. Written by Drs. Christina Maslach and Michael Leiter - leaders in the study of job burnout The Truth About Burnout challenges the accepted thinking about burnout and focuses on how to describe, predict, and alleviate this problem. The authors give workers, managers, and company leaders guidelines and strategies for eradicating the underlying problems within an organization that are the true source of burnout. T
