I know of the dearth of research in the area. I'm glad that more was called out. But it felt like a lot of info I already have. That said, I work in the field of mental health with individuals who experience burn out. So perhaps this info was more relevant for others.

It felt a little too stretched out, I enjoyed the content but I think if it was geared towards female professionals it should be acknowledged that we know the concept of burnout, but maybe it could have gone deeper onto how that can present itself differently for different people.
