Professional Performance Fatigue

You've accomplished so much.  


As an accomplished professional you might be feeling as though you should “have it all figured out”. However, the reality is that you are maintaining an important career that you have worked hard to achieve while still keeping up friends, family, health, etc. Then, you are meeting deadline after deadline or perhaps working in high pressure situations when you need to meet a sales goal or perform complex procedures with perfection - you might start to experience what I refer to as “Professional Performance Fatigue”. This may manifest in physical symptoms such as feeling fatigued or exhausted, crying easily, having trouble sleeping, rigid thinking and becoming emotional over things that wouldn’t normally affect you. Or perhaps, you are typically easygoing and have now found yourself to be hypercritical, “jaded”, or feeling more angry or sad than usual.

Continuing down this path will begin to affect your immune system and decision making confidence. And without intervention you will find yourself at a crossroads with your career that you have so beautifully built up until this point. I can help move you from this experience into one where you are fulfilled throughout all of the domains of your life.
