Did you know that burnout isn’t just exhaustion?
There are defined components to burnout, and different types, too. I learned that by reading “Expansive Intimacy: How ‘Tough Guys’ Defeat Burnout,” the new book by my friend and leading CEO coach Jim Young.
Jim’s new book just came out the same time as mine, so we produced a joint book launch event. I’m not sure that I’m a “tough guy,” but my struggles overcoming rare and severe family medical challenges while I ran a weekly newspaper was certainly a recipe for burnout.
Ed Frauenheim, our shared friend and the author of “Reinventing Masculinity” and other books, moderated this event.
