“Overloaded, anxious, overwhelmed, and exhausted.”
This is what we’re hearing from most often when we ask people in our programs they are feeling. These are also all signs of burnout, a syndrome described by the World Health Organization as the inevitable consequence of prolonged, unmanaged stress.
“Allostatic Overload” is what happens when the demand exceeds our capacity. Between the Covid pandemic, job and economic uncertainty, struggles with parenting and child care, political polarization, and the frightening 24-hour news cycle, we’re all feeling pushed to our limits, and often past them.
The pandemic has taught organizations that focusing on the well-being and mental health of their employees is no longer optional. It’s critical both to their survival and effectiveness, and to organizational performance. Through a mix of assessments, a scientific framework for managing personal energy, and a set of clear practices, individually and organizationally, we help our clients to build resilience, avoid burnout and get more work accomplished, in less time, at a higher level of quality, and more sustainably.
