Diagnosing Burnout (Maslach, 1996)
Burnout is the result of:
o
Emotional Exhaustion (EE): the degree of exhaustion that results from the working environment.
o
Depersonalization (DP): the relationship between the giver (educator) and the recipient (student, teacher, parent, etc.) of the
service.
o
Low or No Personal Accomplishment (PA): the perceived feelings of accomplishment and success in the working environment.
Vitality is the result of:
o
Being treated like a PERSON
o
Being ENCOURAGED and EXCITED about your work—and ENJOYING it!
o
Feeling and knowing that you ACCOMPLISHED something today!
Transforming Your School’s Culture starts with OUR Leadership, Service, and Support!
Leading, serving, and supporting others who feel this way:
o
Teacher: “I’m being treated as less than a person, I don’t find joy in my job, and I don’t feel like I’m accomplishing anything!”
o
Parent: “I’m being treated as less than a person, I don’t find joy in parenting, and I don’t feel like I’m accomplishing anything!”
o
Student: “I’m being treated as less than a person, I don’t find joy in my schoolwork, and I don’t feel like I’m accomplishing
anything!”
Lead, Serve and Support with…Respect
“That was very unkind and disrespectful. How could you have handled that differently?"
"When I disagree with you--I'm going to do my best to model for you what it sounds like to respectfully disagree with someone.”
“I appreciate how you waited to speak and gave the other students your attention while they were speaking. That was an act of respect for
others.”
“If you don’t respect yourself—then it’s almost impossible for you to respect others.”
Lead, Serve, and Support with…Unity
"There are no dumb questions! The best way to learn from each other is by asking questions. Your questions can help us all understand
things better."
“In our classroom we want to establish a climate where no one feels embarrassed to say one thing or another. We will work together to
respect each other’s opinions and thoughts.”
“If someone makes a mistake in our classroom it is important to think about how you react to that mistake. In our classroom we will treat
others the way we want be treated.”
Lead, Serve, and Support with…Love
“I can see that something has you really upset. We can discuss it or you can go to the guidance counselor to talk it out. I don't want to see
your anger get you into trouble.”
"Did you know that I think about how to help you even when you're not around...I think about how to help you understand something in
class...I get worried about you when I can tell that something is on your mind...and I spend time planning to make each class meaningful
for you."
"It's okay if you don't want to share what's wrong right now—but I'm offering a listening ear whenever you want to talk.”
