The Learning Objective CEU Podcast 

Season 1, Episode 01 Show Notes

Did you know a study measuring burnout in professions rated interior designers among the highest in exhaustion?

In this episode, we connect with Jennifer Moss, author of The Burnout Epidemic, to explore how a culture and legacy of overwork contribute to major burnout in the interior design industry. She describes how leaders can recognize the standards they’re modeling for their employees, and shares findings from her research.  

We're also joined by Rahaf Harfoush, author of Humane Productivity, as she spells out the four stages of the creative process and shares recommendations for countering “productivity propaganda.” She stresses the importance of protecting yourself from burnout, an especially crucial goal for creatives, and highlights how to figure out your most effective work rhythm.

After listening, you will be able to:

  • Analyze the six root causes of burnout.
  • Identify the personality types and groups that tend to be most prone to burnout. 
  • Assess how leaders and organizations can combat burnout.
  • Design your own performance cycles to work in harmony with creativity.
