What problem does it solve?
Executive burnout affects organisations in numerous ways such as decreased wellbeing, lower staff retention, higher organisational system costs, higher turnover rates, lower morale and lack of cohesion in the organisation as a whole. Individually the impact is significant but it is not just an individual impact. Executive burnout compromises whole organisations.
Executive burnout occurs when chronic stress starts to affect a leader’s motivation, confidence in their ability to be successful on the job and work performance. People who are burned out have an extended period of time where they feel exhausted, unmotivated and ineffective. They may feel frustrated, cynical and negative, and their actual job performance may suffer.
People who are really invested in their work can be more susceptible to burnout than other people because their identities are so closely tied to their work. Compounding the situation is that “the higher up you get in an organisation, the more isolated you tend to become”. You have fewer peers, fewer people you can be open and transparent with, so when you are at the top of the organisation you often do not have someone you can talk to and can share things with.
Driven executives who are heading toward burnout don’t actually see it’s happening, until it does. The good news is that burnout is treatable and when we tend to it in ourselves and our colleagues, everyone will be happier and more productive.

Key features & benefits?
Our consultants can conduct the initial phase as a small group, say a whole board. This enables all to gain an understanding of what it means and how support can be delivered. After this phase it becomes an individually focused service. Our consultants work directly with individual leaders to truly understand their needs and how to effect an individualised solution.
A personalised consultation provides each person with a clear strategy for progress. This is tracked, monitored and reviewed either face to face or via a video call with the consultant regularly, usually monthly, but it can be more often as needs dictate.
