Job Burnout Self Assessment
This job burnout self assessment is compiled from a long list of reported characteristics of those experiencing burnout. We call it the Overload Assessment.
Overload is not burnout. Overload is a stage somewhere between increasing stress and burnout. A person in continuing overload is moving dangerously closer to burnout and the physical, emotional and mental turmoil that can follow.
This is not a scientific assessment; however it will help you evaluate your current circumstances. That means you need to pay attention to the results.
If you are using this as an employee burnout survey or general large scale stress management questionnaire, you might consider working with us to best interpret the results. Check regulations to make sure you can ask such personal questions.
to print out the form.
2. Circle the number that most closely describes which side of the list best describes you. For example, if you circle “1” beside optimistic about the future, you feel much more optimistic than you feel trapped. If you circle “5” you definitely feel trapped and don’t feel optimistic at all.
3. Add up your total and compare to the categories at the end of the burnout self assessment.
Note: If you score high on the assessment don’t wait long to take action to avoid overload. You may be jeopardizing your emotional, physical and spiritual well-being.
Interpreting Your Score
As we have said, this burnout self assessment is not a scientific survey, so interpret your burnout test results accordingly. What follows is our evaluation of the 'next steps' you should consider.
40 – 60 Blue sky for you. Your coach can assist you to increase capacity and avoid that path that leads to overload. Build the margins you need in life.
60 – 120 You are doing ok, but areas of your life are approaching overload. Work with your coach to address those areas. Take well thought out action and you will be fine.
120 -180 You are running in the red. If you do not make some major changes you are a prime candidate for burnout. Work with your coach on lifestyle, beliefs about yourself and work issues. Bring your life back into balance.
180 – 200 You may be in serious trouble. Work with your coach to make drastic changes now, or talk about getting clinical help if needed.
If you scored between 120 and 200, you could be in danger. Take action.
Act on the results of this job burnout self assessment. Work with me to make some intentional changes NOW.
