Preventing Executive Burnout

The atmosphere at work has changed. The pace of change keeps accelerating.
Today’s managers are experiencing a whole new order of exhaustion.

Managers have ever-widening spans of control. In the boundary-less organization,
work goes on round the clock. The post-dinner time zone has become prime time
for the rest of what didn’t get done during office hours. Thanks to technology,
work is now very portable.

It’s easy to see why many managers feel overwhelmed. Finding personal
fulfillment through one’s work is becoming more of a challenge. Job burnout is a
reality for many people.

What can executives do to prevent burnout, either in themselves, or in the
managers and people they work with?

One of the most effective measures against burnout is offering the services of a
professional coach. Through sessions, the individual is allowed to express
things that might otherwise be repressed and denied because of organizational
politics. The person can explore what really matters, and how to handle stress
and challenges.

If executives fail to see that organizational factors can cause burnout, their
lack of understanding may perpetuate the problem. Sufferers need to know that
their problem has to do with the nature of the job and not their capacity to
handle it.
