In a competitive work environment, characterized by high performance pressure, you have to deal with everyday challenges and unforeseen crises and a strong pressure to succeed. Chronic stress over prolonged periods can lead to the development of a Burn-Out-Syndrome. Entrepreneurs & leaders need to be resilient in order to stay functional under pressure and not to develop a Burn-Out. Resiliency can be increased by improving emotional self-regulation, self-confidence, impulse control, self-efficacy, empathy and proactive support-seeking. Resilience Coaching encourages entrepreneurs & executives to improve their self-care, and to adequately attend to their basic physical and emotional needs.
In times of high stress, entrepreneurs & executives have to contain difficult mental states of individuals and teams. In order to maintain the effectiveness and performance of individuals and teams, they have to filter external pressures and demands. They themselves need a mental space within which they can think about the involved risks, uncertainties and their own fears. This is a prerequisite to adequately dealing with those pressures and demands. Resilience Coaching can provide that space and offers valuable assistance.
Over the last 30 years the proportion of mental disorders in absenteeism has increased fivefold (BKK Health Report 2010). Often there are organizational conditions that contribute to mental health issues such as Burn-Out (e.g. negative working environment, structural ambiguities of the organization, communication problems and lack of information flow).
Business leaders & entrepreneurs who themselves pay attention to maintaining their emotional and physical health set an example for the whole organization. Companies who ensure that their employees are healthy and maintain good working relationships are more successful in the long-term.
