BURNOUT PREVENTION

The Burnout Prevention Program ©

Professional careers are built upon emotional self-regulation. When investing into the emotional agility of your workforce, you prevent and adequately address high turnover, conflicts, and absenteeism.

With the BLOCKBUSTERS Burnout Prevention Program © you can transform organizational, family, or health stress into productivity. In monthly 4hr group sessions we work on the long-term employability.


WHY BURNOUT PREVENTION?


Businesses can save a lot of time, energy, and money when they focus on emotional and relational agility at the workplace. Responsible employers and employees are aware of the emotional overspills between home/work life:

BOOST FOCUS
Personal problems are seen for what they are — no longer related to the business or your colleagues.
BUILD RELIABILITY
When people take responsibility for their own share in a conflict, radical honesty makes people more reliable
REINFORCE LOYALTY
When you can be at your work with all you are, you are also more likely to bring your skills / competencies.

WHO IS THIS FOR?


This program is for everyone who wants to excel at work. As 70% of our energy is spent on (unconcious) processing of emotions and on navigating group dynamics in our company or industry, what if we free it up and boost productivity?
