There is a fine line between stress and passion in the workplace. Both require extreme dedication, time and commitment, however, one is not pleasant, while the other, completes the reason for your existence. The term ‘burnout’ in the workplace suggests that people are tired of working to the point that they no longer want to continue at their current pace. We often consider burnout as a ‘bad thing’ in the workplace and overall that is correct, however, this can emanate from both a stressful position as well as a passionate position.

According to of a comprehensive study conducted within the nursing ranks, there are three types of stress; eustress, distress and severe distress (i.e. burnout). Eustress is the kind of stress that generates either fear or excitement, often see to be ‘good stress.’ Distress is what we all think of when we speak of stress, the bad kind. Distress generates depression, sadness, and pessimism to name of few. Lastly, severe distress is extreme stress. This is the type of stress that causes emotional exhaustion to the point of coronary heart disease. Stress is no laughing matter and a very real issue in clinical operations. Arguably, organizations must address these issues intentionally and for multiple reasons.

In this session, Tom Tonkin, Ph.D., Principal Consultant, Thought-Leadership and Advisory Services for Cornerstone on Demand, will discuss the challenges of dealing with both stress and passion in the workplace, both leading to staff burnout. He will go over the causes of stress in the clinical workplace as well as some struggles to help alleviate some of the issues.
