Burnout Narratives of Municipal
This study aims to gain an understanding of
personal experiences of burnout phenomenon
among members of municipal management
teams. Fourteen managers were interviewed.
Four types of burnout narratives were iden-
tified: denier, persevering, recovered and de-
fender. These data were analysed using Labov &
Walezky’s model of the structural types of narra-
tive clauses. The analysis reveals similarities and
differences of burnout experiences within each
of the identified narrative types. Particularly, the
study explores the role of workplace community
in burnout recovery.
