We are excited to have Marie Schacht, CEO of Akimbo, join the CoCreate Work Podcast this week to share her journey through burnout with us. Hear how Marie recognized some of the non-traditional signs of burnout we talked about in Episode 001, what she did to work through burnout, and how she addresses burnout with her team.
Lessons from Marie about burnout:
- Take time for recovery, not just rest
- You can’t perform your way out of burnout
- Burnout is not a personal flaw
- You need to create a culture where you people can ask for what they need
