On this episode of My Crazy Office, Kathi, and Katherine talk about what it takes to manage (and keep) your best employees. They start with a question from a manager who has a super-competent employee and fears losing this person. During the second part of the podcast, they address the “star” employee directly — how does a stellar employee determine the next career steps?
Burnout — It happens to the best of us. On this episode of My Crazy Office, Kathi and Katherine explore the topic of burnout; how to spot it, how to treat it, and how to manage someone who has it. What do you do if you feel so depleted that going to work fills you with a sense of dread? How do you manage a top performer who suddenly seems burnt out at work? Listen here.

If you are a hardworking, career-minded professional, you may be very good at taking care of others, and not so good at taking care of yourself.
