The Book

Unlocking the Natural-Born Leader’s Abilities

The NBL possesses innate traits, refined and perfected over time with education, training, and experience. I will attempt to illustrate these traits by drawing from my fifty years of personal experiences and hope readers will look at this as an opportunity to introspect. I have also designed a self-assessment tool so you may self-evaluate the presence of these NBL abilities and identify where you ultimately fall on the spectrum. Today, there is widespread lack of confidence in leadership whether in business, government, education, or elsewhere.


Am I Burned Out at Work?

Workplace burnout is typically found in human services professions due to their high-stress work environments and the emotional demands of the jobs. High levels of burnout are found among CEOs, the health care sector, social workers, nurses, teachers, lawyers, engineers, customer services representatives, and police officers. Workplace burnout results from unresolved, continuous emotional and interpersonal chronic stress. You must be able to view this stress through various new angles to gain a deeper understanding of workplace burnout. This is accompanied by feelings of exhaustion, cynicism, and inefficiency. Burnout is common among professional groups of people, including physicians, medical students and residents, nurses, social workers, human resources professionals, CEOs, teachers, lawyers, engineers, customer service representatives, and police officers. Other groups of people also experience burnout, such as parents, spouses, and caregivers. Burnout can damage your work environment as well as your home and social life.

This self-improvement book offers an informed opinion on the causes of burnout and presents solutions people can implement in their lives with some practice and attention.
