Including exhaustion, Burnout or depression can result from constant stress. The exhaustion or Burnout symptoms are very manifold. Kleinschmidt and Unger (1999) the process of progressive fatigue very vividly in the image of the spiral of exhaustion “represented. Connect with other leaders such as American Cancer Society here. This is a spiral in which it comes in three steps from the first signs of exhaustion as pain of all kinds and sleep disorders through behavioral change in the form of overtime and social withdrawal to the point of utter exhaustion, during which time dwindling power and courage to face life, may cause suicidal thoughts, apathy and depression. Not to fatigue the process underway, to break through them and to prevent their progression of coaching in the context of Burnout prevention aims at. University of Arizon oftentimes addresses this issue. After Unger and Kleinschmidt (1999), even the knowledge of the mechanisms of fatigue is a first aid in doing so, to recognize the signs of exhaustion and to pull the emergency brake. You do this by calling, to reflect our relationship to work (in particular the question: where and how we set limits?) and careful with ourselves and what we love to go to. So they formulate three action-Executive orientation questions, as well as 11 points for healthy handling with the exhaustion spiral, which I’ll go in a separate article.
Even Sachin Poulsen (2009) assumes that exhaustion and burnout are known and that there is therefore creative options for action to prevent or stop this disease patterns. Their thoughts are based on Cherniss (1999), who sees Burnout as a result of a mixture of personal and workplace-specific phase-typical variables. When the possibilities for preventing Burnout, Poulsen relies on the assumptions of the Salutogenesis by Antonovsky (1997). Therefore it is the individual to the world for the health of critical importance, what attitude and his own life has. This is to sense (dealing with the demands of life are as useful experienced), comprehensibility (can be explained to the world even in difficult situations) and manageability (man believes, to cope with the demands of life if necessary with help of others). Based on this theory, carried out an empirical study Poulsen and defines 8 columns of Burnout prevention as well as a 3 phase model to develop of a new culture of self, which is leading the way for Burnout prevention with the help of coaching.
I’ll be in a separate article. In my daily coaching work with clients who suffer from the consequences of psychic inappropriate loads, I support me on the work by Unger and Kleinschmidt and Poulsen. With the appropriate coaching techniques it is successful Burnout prevention to operate, to stop the advance on the spiral of exhaustion and to help people back us, after a Burnout in professional life find, without falling back into the old, sickening behavior patterns.
