Job burnout, an impairment of motivation to work, is increasingly common in today's complex world. It begins with small warning signals: feelings of stress, frustration, emotional outbursts, withdrawal, health problems, alienation, substandard performance, and, at times, the increased use of drugs and alcohol. If unheeded, these symptoms can progress until a person dreads going to work.

He has conducted workshops on Stress Management, Anger Management, and Job Burnout, at local and regional corporate conferences.
