A feeling of lack of control typifies corporate burnout. Directors and Team Leaders may feel that they cannot influence corporate decisions or that their work is not being recognized and utilized effectively because the overall procedural structure of the organization is unwieldy.
These situations of dealing with emotions and a person’s mental health have to be resolved because Directors and Team Leaders are sadly not trained to face them because they are not professional psychologists or have the necessary training.
We can sometimes think about what Team Leaders and Directors need to know about our colleagues’ mental health; we can find that if our teams do not feel focused on the job at hand, they will be less efficient and their work will slowly deteriorate, affecting the company’s performance.
Burnout cases have increased to the point where the World Health Organization has officially recognized it as an occupational phenomenon.
Gallup has surveyed more than 7,500 full-time employees about burnout. Twenty-three percent of those workers said they felt burned out more often than not.
An additional 44 percent reported feeling burned out sometimes. Let’s put that into context. Nearly two-thirds of full-time workers are dealing with burnout at some point while at work.
These statistics show that staff burnout is caused by: becoming cynical or critical at work; having problems being motivated; becoming irritable and bad-tempered at work; not behaving professionally; finding it hard to concentrate; feeling disillusioned; alcohol and food abuse; and having bad sleeping habits.
All these issues and behaviors can be resolved by seeking a professional psychologist or by taking steps at the work to resolve the systemic issues if they affect a director’s organization and the team management.
The World Health Organisation has also recognized staff burnout “as an occupational hazard.” For more information, please view.
The health effects of burnout on Directors and Team leaders
The effects of burnout can lead to excessive stress, which could be resolved by seeking stress-release therapies, listening to therapeutic music, or seeking out the problems that are causing a high-value director or team leader stress and trying to find an outlet to overcome the causes of stress.
This could be caused by home-related personal drama affecting the director’s performance at work.
Kevin Samuels, who has worked 30 years in Brand Management, Sales, and Marketing, argues that highly valued Directors & Team leaders must have an environment at home that is peaceful to focus on their professional and personal development (Video by Kevin Samuels).
Depending on your problem, you may need to seek different psychologists or test out multiple therapies.
Suffering from fatigue can be caused by home or work issues or suffering from a lack of sleep, according to the professional recruiter, Joseph David Henry, author of Recruitment Hacks: Life Hacks for Recruiters who want to become recruitment superstars.
In his book, he recommends that before going to sleep, you must spend an hour not reading or doing any mental tasks, and especially avoid TV screens, laptops, and other electronic devices.
Mr. Henry recommends improving your efficiency because a tired director and team leaders are not good at the workplace. For more information, please view.
Darren Birch, an executive for the Australian Football League,
Darren Birch described his burnout symptoms as not manifesting as classic depression or, as we would understand, being unable to get out of bed and being unmotivated.
Mr. Birch described himself as becoming desensitized to other people and unable to pull back and focus on his mental well-being.
An executive, director, or team leader must have some additional high-pressure, high-risk experience or work in a demanding career that works its directors and team leaders to the bone.
Directors and Team Leaders will need to focus on their career goals and dreams for the sake of the team. Steve Jobs, the founder of Apple, and Tim Cook, CEO of Apple, they will need to focus on their physical, emotional, and dietary health as a priority to give them the ability to fulfill the dreams and potential of the Apple company.
