Description

Burnout and stress. Two words often go hand-in-hand in work or business. It's also a topic worth having because the compound effects may be detrimental—that's what we're going to talk about in this episode. We have the founder & Chief Burnout Officer of The Breakfast Leadership Network, a San Diego-based burnout media firm, Michael Levitt. We talk about the challenges he went through, from having heart issues to losing his job and how it allowed him to reinvent himself. I'm excited to share this episode with you, so tune in, and I hope you will learn a thing or two.

Michael Levitt is an in-person and Certified Virtual Speaker, a Certified NLP and CBT Therapist, and one of the world's leading authorities in burnout recovery and prevention. He's a Fortune 500 consultant, #1 bestselling author, and host of the Breakfast Leadership Show, a top 200 podcast on iTunes. He's a 2x Top 20 Global Thought Leader on Culture with Thinkers360. He is also a former Healthcare executive, CIO, and CFO overseeing $ 2 Billion budgets, so he has almost seen and done it all.
