On the topic of burnout

How to prevent burnout?
Are you an entrepreneur or an employee who carries a burden of responsibility and has to face several tasks at the same time? You work hard and you want to avoid a burnout or maybe you have already experienced this and you don’t want to do it again? 

Are you subject to stress in your workplace? Do you feel exhausted by all the tasks and responsibilities you have to perform?

A Burnout is characterized by emotional exhaustion, skepticism and inefficiency in the workplace, as well as chronic negative reactions to stressful workplace conditions.

A Burnout is a mental health problem rather than a mental illness. It can be chronic and affect health and performance at all levels. It has a significant impact on all workplaces in general.

It is related to the behaviour of employees and/or collaborators in the workplace and their state of mind such as: 
– Too demanding with themselves
– The feeling that the effort made is not enough or even insufficient
– The feeling of being incompetent
– Not feeling appreciated for what they do
– Have too many responsibilities
– Have positions that are not in accordance with their competence, etc.

Several organizational factors contribute to burnout, such as the feeling of not participating in the growth of the organization, not being appreciated, having role conflicts, being overwhelmed by the amount of work or having a lack of clarity about expectations.

Employees or collaborators do not realize the negative impact on their performance. Errors multiply and their productivity decreases more and more, which is often attributed to a decrease in motivation and/or a bad attitude.

How can burnout be reduced and eliminated from any workplace? How can we make work life less stressful and more enjoyable?

One thing is certain, we must start by reducing the stress factors that trigger burnout:
Implement a stress management and psychological health system to create greater psychological security within the company or workplace.

Front-line managers must be aware of the signs and symptoms of burn-out, in order to prevent or better respond to it, to note any changes in the attitude or energy of employees and/or collaborators and to help in early identification, also to differentiate between stress (which is a feeling of anxiety and urgency) and burn-out, which is expressed more in the form of helplessness, despair and apathy.

In this workshop, I use my experience of 25 years  as a pharmacist and a transformational coach to offer you the solution to early identification of the signs and symptoms of a burnout, on how to save your human and economic capital and increase your productivity.
