About Executive Burnout
Executive Burnout is far more common than you might think, and with symptoms far more diverse than has been previously been recognised. It is caused by prolonged pressure and stress and can include a complicated mix of unconscious mind patterns, practical issues, and somatic, or body-based responses that create the experience of burn-out as felt differently by each individual who experiences it.
How to know if you are experiencing burn-out or are about to? Most people start with noticing they are doing things to keep going in-spite of the small signs that something is wrong. If you have a high-pressure job and are suffering from any of the list below, the chances are that you may have emerging or well established Executive Burnout and it is important to do something about it sooner rather than later.
