23% of UK employees considered quitting due to burnout in the past week. As a line manager or leader, it's essential that we can spot the warning signs, and know what to do about it, to prevent it. But there's a problem: psychological safety at work legislation creates a paradox that can unintentionally undermine our burnout prevention efforts.

Here's what you'll discover in today's Soultuitive® Leaders podcast episode:

  1. the paradox of how psychological safety at work can actually undermine burnout prevention, but that doesn't mean it's a bad idea
  2. How burnout affects individuals, teams, organisations and home life - warning signs for line managers and leaders
  3. Why this paradox only exists because we're fixing the wrong thing with both burnout and psychological safety at work
  4. Why the solution lies in deeply addressing the three pillars of burnout
  5. Simple actions you can take today to turn this around, more quickly and easily than you might imagine
