Burnout is reaching epic proportions among professionals in the United States and many other industrialized countries. This is according to the Association for Psychological Science. The negative effects of burnout spread beyond your professional life and into your physical health and personal well-being.
Recent scientific studies have found that burnout is far more than an emotional response to workplace stress. It also affects the health of your brain and body. When you realize that the stress reduction routines and mindsets that made you successful yesterday are not working today, it’s frightening.
When under this type of stress, you’re pushing forward and going nowhere. One of my coaching clients described it as if you are trying to run underwater. Still, you continue to push forward because you’re committed to getting results. Furthermore, you don’t want to let your team down even though you know you are wearing yourself out.
This cycle of feeling overwhelmed and getting stuck is how people start to feel professional exhaustion or burnout.
People who have more grit and resilience are likelier to have more joy
Wanting to stop this tense situation brings many of my clients to start a custom coaching program with me. I designed the BOOST coaching program based on my process. Which, has helped busy professionals successfully build up their stress resilience, grit, and passion.
Once they reclaim their values and power, new possibilities emerge in their lives. The program helps people shift their perspective on their challenges. And unlock their inner strength to quickly recover from setbacks and calmly resolve tough situations.
Studies have repeatedly shown people who have more grit and resilience are more likely to achieve their goals. They bounce back from crises faster. They also have a better overall quality of life. Including better health, more joy, more motivation, and more control of their lives.
Confidently leap toward your goals and live a life you love
My coaching program is designed to help you get unstuck. To move forward in your goals. And further, to build up your resilience to stress. It’s a space to name and tame whatever is blocking you from feeling joy and hitting your goals. Additionally, the program gives you support and accountability… What you will need to adopt the mindset you need to confidently reach your goals.
We work together as client and coach. We create solutions that are custom-tailored to build up your resilience to setbacks. So you can confidently leap toward your goals and live a life you love.
My target audience consists of professionals frustrated with their career journey. They’re ready to make changes to significantly increase their clarity, impact, and happiness. My clients are hardworking, values-driven women and men. Furthermore, they have demanding and often hectic work situations.
One client described that his daily work issues come at him as fast as if he’s trying to “drink out of a fire hose.”
My clients have big ideas and big responsibilities. Juggling all those responsibilities—at work, at home, and in the community—can be overwhelming at times. But they don’t want to quit.
Unlocking the power of resilience accelerates your ability to navigate your full and busy life with clarity, confidence, and joy.
