  1. Great infographic! And spot on…I’ve experienced these stages myself and yes, it is like losing your soul 🙁 Awareness is key and you’ve outlined the stages in clear and concise ways. Will share with others!

  2. This infographic is spot on. I’ve been through all of these phases at two separate jobs now, multiple times. They do seem to always go in this order.

  3. Thanks so much for sharing your perspective. I’m sorry to hear you’ve had this experience– and I do hope you find some of our tools and techniques helpful.
