Most Americans today are frustrated that no matter how much emotional currency they invest in the work they are trying to do well, each day leaves them disappointed, depleted, and distressed. Dr. Berglas has spent more than 25 years studying this phenomenon while a faculty member at Harvard Medical School's Department of Psychiatry, and as an Adjunct Professor at USC's Marshall School of Business. He has devoted four decades to helping high-earning clients derive psychological rewards from work. Berglas' clients range from CEOs and other C-Level executives, to professional athletes, lawyers, politicians, and artists.
In STAY HUNGRY & KICK BURNOUT IN THE BUTT, Berglas explores what causes people to suffer psychological burnout , and how to prevent it. Specifically, Berglas walks you through a program that enables you to identify passions and harness the energy (already within you) to fuel psychologically gratifying professional pursuits. Debunking common myths, Dr. Berglas knows there's no one-size-fits-all solution to any psychological problem, which is why he will help you identify your core passion and then offer clear, actionable advice on how to harness it to live a happier and more fulfilling life guided by purpose.
