Employee Burnout & Job-Related Stress

Employee burnout - what is it? The dictionary says that burnout is "physical or emotional exhaustion, especially caused by stress" These days, who isn't stressed? In the workplace, employees are expected to work hard and help increase the bottom line. After all, a company is nothing without its employees.

Can you spot the signs of burnout? Do you even know if your employees are feeling over-worked and under-appreciated? Have people stopped smiling at your company?  Do you know if this stress is caused by the demands of the job?  Or is it because there is an element of psychological harassment present in your workplace.  We don't like to admit that this might be the case, but in today’s world, this bears looking into to. 

Vision Coach International provides effective, efficient programs and workshops for employees and management. Located in Montréal, we offer our stress training programs across Quebec. We invite you to contact Vision Coach International today and let us create a customized stress management program for your corporation, business, or organization that will improve your workplace environment.

Montréal Executive Coaching

Every day, executives, directors, and managers, make difficult decisions that influence the lives of many people and the organizations they work for. The stress that executives encounter is compounded by the need to process more information at a faster pace than ever before, and by the fact that they are usually alone in making decisions. Today's executives carry a heavy burden. As a consequence, more and more executives experience job "burnout." And even when they are able to juggle their many responsibilities (without getting to burnout), executives invariably need support in order to remain fresh and get the job done creatively and objectively.

Executive coaching is a tool, designed to help the executive perform better; to help executives manage with more clarity, lead with more alacrity, make decisions, manage conflict, handle interpersonal relationships with more ease, and in the process, learn more about herself/himself.

At Vision Coach International, we offer one-on-one executive coaching services within the manager's own environment, here in Montréal and across Quebec. Our executive coaching philosophy is one of appreciation and a belief that the client holds the answers to his current dilemmas. Our job as an executive coach is to partner with the executive to help bring out intended outcomes. 

Has one of your managers been accused of psychological harassment? Do you know how to handle the harassment or bullying in the workplace? Vision Coach International can help you minimize your feeling of vulnerability. Coaching can help the whole team get through this.
