Nicole & Kate Can Relate

Burnout. Is there a stigma around sharing that you’re overworked, exhausted, stressed out, and can’t handle the pressures you face on a daily basis? And is it different whether you’re a man or a woman?

In this episode we’ll explore these questions by diving into an article a friend shared with Kate earlier this year titled, Is burnout finally 'high-profile' enough for leaders to act?

Points Discussed in this Episode
  • Applauding Jacinda Ardern for her confidence in speaking out about “ longer [having] enough ‘in the tank’ to do her job justice.”
  • Will having someone this high profile speak up on the topic help remove the stigma around burnout? 
  • Whether this instance - along with others - is decreasing the public’s confidence in women's ability to be great leaders 
  • How should the topic of burnout be handled in the workplace?
  • Our own personal experiences with burnout 
  • Our go-to resources when we’re feeling overwhelmed or stressed
