Overcoming Burnout With Resilience – Find Your Roadmap (video)


Our new guest is Eileen McDargh, the CEO of the Resiliency Group and the author of the upcoming book called ‘Burnout to Breakthrough: Building Resilience to Refuel, Recharge, and Reclaim What Matters.’ She will talk about the challenges of the crisis we are in and ways to overcome them.

In this interview, we explore:

  • Burnout
  • The advantages of working remotely
  • Overcoming stress and burnout


People all around the world are in a period of extreme stress. We are dealing with the pandemic, recession, growing unemployment, a lot of pressure, and uncertainty. We are faced with new circumstances and the unknown future, so, naturally, a lot of people feel overwhelmed and burnt out.
We don’t have the road map for getting out of this situation, but the truth is that life never gives us the road map for anything. Individuals and organizations that will come out of this thriving are the ones that can create their road maps. When everything is seemingly out of our control, our task is to find where we do have some control. In the end, all we have is today, so it’s a matter of what we can do with this day. We have to accept that some of our patterns need to be broken, and figure out how we can replace them. We may even find that those substitutes are simpler.

Working Remotely

Even though the pandemic forced businesses to become virtualized, remote work gives many benefits to both organizations and employees. With the right approach to it and wise managers, productivity, and employee engagement can improve. Online meetings make our communication more personal, and people are getting to know each other better.
It also allows people to choose where they want to live and gives them the freedom to build their lives the way they like. In the long run, it can make people happier and more satisfied. There are a lot of reasons to look strategically at this business model and assess if it would be the right path for you even after we come out of the crisis.


We all need to reorganize our lives to adjust to new circumstances, which can be very troubling. The first step may be changing our point of view. We can look at everything that is happening as if it was a journey – there are a lot of unknowns, but it’s an adventure.
Energy is what resilience is all about. Burnout is the total depletion of energy, so if we feel exhausted, we should try to figure out where our energy and time go. If we track it for a few days, we will start to see some patterns, and also recognize who the people that drain our energy are. Energy is also quickly depleted by the input, so it’s important to be careful about the content we consume. It’s beneficial to dedicate ourselves to the things that renew us, simplify our needs and relationships, and engage with the world.
