LEARNING WHY TO CHANGE IS A FIRST STEP TO CHANGE

THE CHALLENGE OF SPRINTER WOMEN

In their 20s and 30s, many professional women seek to grab their chances of success. But just when their career reaches a top point, they start feeling exhausted. This is exactly because of their immense effort that leaves no room for failure. Women, such as yourself, can benefit from learning that life is a marathon, not a sprint. And this learning involves redefining your ways of working.

AS A SPRINTER WOMAN, YOU RISK BURNOUT

Because high-achieving women are very passionate about their work, they often don’t realize that they work too much and that they put an enormous pressure on themselves. They rarely see burnout coming. Once it kicks in, burnout expresses itself in the feelings of exhaustion and tiredness, a lack of interest and motivation, and feelings of cynicism and ineffectiveness. It affects both productivity and health, happiness, and relationships.

Turn your work into a marathon,
not a sprint.

YOU NEED TO REMAIN ENGAGED

Work engagement is a key not only for preventing and curing burnout, but also for being able to manage it all. When you are engaged with your work, you succeed in expressing yourself through it. Your state of mind is characterized by vigor, dedication, and absorption. And though you can feel tired, your tiredness seems positive because it is associated with accomplishments.

YOU NEED TO USE RESOURCES

Burnout occurs when you have many work demands but have little resources at your disposal. To excel and become engaged with your work, you need to actively seek resources that will make your work easier. Even if you are asked to do the impossible, you can do it if you proactively ask for support from your colleagues and supervisors, if you seek feedback, or if you ask to be coached.

YOU NEED TO USE YOUR STRENGHTS

Like every woman, you have a set of strengths that are unique to you. If you proactively use your strengths at work, your work will become easier and more fulfilling – exactly because it will rely on the attributes that allow you to perform at your personal best. Using one’s strongest characteristics is one of the best tools for aligning the job to your personal uniquenesses.

YOU NEED TO FIND A MEANING

Apart from being engaged, you should succeed to derive meaning from your work. You need to feel as if you are contributing to something worthwhile, to feel valuable and valued, and to be able to both give and receive from your work. That is why it is often said that increasing a sense of meaningfulness at work is one of the most potent ways to increase productivity and satisfaction.

YOU NEED TO CRAFT YOUR JOB

Work starts being messy when others dictate what you have to do and how you have to do it. But this doesn’t have to be this way. You can craft your job yourself so that it better suits your skills and interests. You can reorganize your tasks, their scope, and the way you think about them. And you can change the nature of your work relationships. All of this refreshes your work and helps you reenergize it.

YOU NEED TO CRAFT YOUR LEISURE

When you work a lot, you often forget to take the time to yourself. It soon becomes harder to make oneself do something enjoyable than something unenjoyable, and this way leisure activities never end up on schedule. But you cannot only work – this is the quickest way to exhaustion. To be happy and successful, you need to findtime for yourself.

learn what

LEARNING WHAT TO CHANGE IS A SECOND STEP TO CHANGE

If you want to kick out your exhaustion or simply manage your work better, you must first know what working habits you need to change. What on your job makes you feel exhausted and less engaged with your work? This self-knowledge will help you understand what you need to redefine so as to maximize your professional success. Our test is grounded in solid scientific research and it provides crucial insights. You will learn the following:

HOW BURNT OUT ARE YOU?

To what extent does your work end up making you feel exhausted and burnt out? This insight will help you understand how important it is to redefine your ways of working.

HOW MEANINGFUL IS YOUR WORK?

To what extent do you succeed in deriving meaning from your work? This insight will help you understand whether your work is important enough to make you feel engaged and satisfied.

DO YOU CRAFT YOUR JOB?

How much do you actually modify your job so that it suits you better? Learning this enables you to know whether you should craft your job more.

DO YOU CRAFT YOUR LEISURE?

Do you dedicate enough time to yourself outside of work? Knowing this is important because you can not be happy if you do not have fun in your free time.

HOW ENGAGED ARE YOU?

To what degree are you dedicated and absorbed into your work? This is important to know because engagement is a solution to both kicking out exhaustion and being satisfied and productive.

DO YOU USE YOUR JOB RESOURCES?

How high are your job demands and do you have resources to deal with them? This is important to know because making the most out of your resources is a smart way to make your job more manageable and fulfilling.

DO YOU USE YOUR STRENGTHS?

How often do you rely on your biggest strengths while working? Having this insight helps you understand whether you are reaping the benefits of your own uniqueness.

learn how

LEARNING HOW TO CHANGE IS A THIRD STEP TO CHANGE

Knowing how engaged or exhausted you are, how meaningful your work is, whether you use your strengths and job resources, and whether you craft your job and leisure, simply provides information on your current situation. Although such self-knowledge is crucial for change, your working habits can be changed only if you rely on effective strategies. This is where our online counselling comes into play.

The goals of our online counselling sessions are to:

1
Decrease your exhaustion
2
Increase your engagement
3
Pump up your work with meaning
4
Help you achieve more



Each counselling session is crafted to your own needs. Together, we will improve your working habits that have been identified as a priority. Depending on the results of the test you have taken, counselling will have one or more of the following sub-goals:

CRAFT YOUR JOB

Through a set of innovative exercises, you will take a step back and think about your job in a new way. We will divide your work tasks into a set of blocks and craft a visual plan for allocating time and energy to your tasks. You will learn how to incorporate your values and passions into your work, and how to proactively seek resources that make your job easier and more fulfilling. The goal is to build up a stronger fit between you and your job, so that you are both happier and more productive.

USE YOUR STRENGHTS

By relying on innovative procedures, we will identify your uttermost uniquenesses and strengths. Once these are recognized, you will cultivate your strengths through practice and apply them in different contexts. On a weekly basis, you will establish a set of steps that will help you to rely on your strengths while working. The goal is to make a more optimal fit between you are your job, so that you are more engaged and effective.

CRAFT YOUR LEISURE

Having more time for leisure activities is a healthy habit that each hardworking woman needs to develop. Counselling will focus on helping you identify and start doing the things you really enjoy. By relying on scientific strategies, you will incorporate leisure into your busy schedule, and how to seek novel experiences that satisfy your needs outside of work.

LET’S DISCUSS YOUR NEEDS

During the first session, we will look at your test scores and decide what counselling should focus on.

Make an appointment for the introductory meeting.
