On this episode of The Restaurant Prescription™ Podcast we dive right into a taboo topic of stress, burnout and addiction with Chef and Executive Coach Adam Lamb from Foodwerks.
“Welcome to the show dedicated to talking about ailments and issues that plagues the restaurant industry (and we know there are quite a few), will serve the issue up on the plate, discuss the symptoms and we’ll give you the prescription for the cure.”
“This week we’re going to talk about stress, burnout & addiction. This trifecta is an epidemic that truly plagues the restaurant industry. If you have been in the restaurant industry for any time, then you have personally seen firsthand the effect of what stress can do to an individual. I myself have experienced these issues on a very personal level and have had the monkey of addiction of my back. It’s a long road to come back from, however I can tell you personally that can be done.
