Quick Burnout Self-Assessment
Rate yourself on each question using a number one through four, with one being never, two sometimes, three often and four always. Then total your points from all four questions.
- How often are you tired and lacking energy to go to work in the morning?
- How often do you feel physically drained, like your batteries are dead?
- How often is your thinking process sluggish or your concentration impaired?
- How often do you feel emotionally detached from co-workers (or customers) and unable to be sensitive to their needs?
If you scored less than nine, you are not suffering from burnout. If you scored between a 10 and 12, you are on the verge of burnout. If you scored between a 13 and a 16, you are suffering full-on burnout.
