How to Come Back from Burnout with Jimmy Burroughes

Jul 21, 2023 | Hot Mess Hotline Podcast, Leadership Development, Resilience

How do you come back from burnout as a leader? Jimmy Burroughes was an overachiever who tried to prove himself for too long and burned out. In epic fashion. As someone who knows he’s here to make a difference in this world, he wanted to do too much, be too much, and was burning the candle at both ends. One day in 2017 it all caught up with him and the life that he had unraveled.

Luckily for him and for us, he came back from being lost, feeling hopeless, and being unable to get out bed. He now uses his experiences to work with teams and leaders so they never get to where he was. My hunch is that you’ve been where Jimmy has been…or are on the brink of it…or have a colleague who is burnt out now. Listen in for real guidance to re-engage in life with joy.
