Tony Piper is a stress, burnout and leadership coach. After 27 years in the IT profession, Tony shared with Simon his expertise on stress in the workplace, why it happens, and looked at this year's WHO definition of burnout as an 'occupational phenomenon'.

Simon and Tony touched on:

  • What burnout physically looks like, and how to spot it in yourself
  • The importance of line managers in preventing burnout
  • Why Chief Executives are not superheroes and the power of vulnerable leadership

Tony only shared his top tips on the best ways to properly switch off and some of his best self-care tips.
