Welcome back Uncommon Leader Podcast Nation. I've got another first for you. This episode. I have my first repeat guest in Dr. Paul Dechant. Way back in episode one, Paul and I discussed a growing concern in healthcare and industry overall, the topic of 'burnout in the workplace. Here is a link to that first episode.
While in that episode we talked about the symptoms of burnout, this episode focused on the way to reduce or prevent burnout. It's an important topic. Since he and I chatted about six months ago, a new trend is broken out called 'The Great Resignation.'
I really liked how Paul talked about the opposite of burnout in this episode, which is professional fulfillment. Throughout the episode, Paul discussed five steps to addressing burnout:
1) Diagnostic - Understanding the current state of the organization
2) Visioning - developing a plan of what good looks like
4) Changing the corporate culture through leadership from the Boardroom to the exam room!
5) Improving efficiency through implementing a continuous improvement system like Lean
So Paul is all in and steadfast on this mission. I hope that he's successful.
