And If you wonder if and/or how far are you on your way to burnout, you can start with the self-assessment [pdf] published by Beth Kanter and Aliza Sherman in their The Happy, Healthy Nonprofit: Strategies for Impact Without Burnout book.


As a coach, I work with individuals as well as with organizations on finding the right ways to make activism sustainable in three dimensions:

  • supporting communities in building anti-burnout culture of balancing passion with reasonable resources management;

  • and with more formal non-profit organizations and other institutions on introducing anti-burnout strategies and human-friendly environment.
