Counseling/Coaching for High Achieving Professionals
What is going on with Dan?
Life Coaching can take you to the next level where you experience excellence in your career – and satisfaction in all key areas of your life.
Ambitious professionals face a number of significant challenges
But, in those quiet moments, when you’re deeply honest with yourself, you feel the little voice inside nudging you to notice that you’ve incurred a price for this success.
You can be proud of your accomplishments yet also recognize that your high-stress lifestyle has taken a toll on your overall well being.
What is your body telling you?
Are you constantly tired but unable to sleep well?
If your muscles are tense, you regularly feel “tired but wired” and/or you don’t even take the time to focus on your physical needs, then you might be headed towards burnout.
If you don’t feel it in your body, then the symptoms of an imbalanced life might show up in your mind and emotions. Do you sometimes or often feel stressed or anxious?
What is Work-Life Balance
Forbes magazine noted that whereas the baby boomer generation was very driven professionally, the lack of work-life balance has left upwards of 80% of them highly stressed despite retirement. The magazine also noted that many corporations today are recognizing that employees who are able to maintain a balance between their careers and their personal lives are more productive.
For this reason, many companies today are seeking ways to help employees who put in long hours find stress relief where possible. Some have workout rooms onsite and many create social events to help employees unwind. Yet, most find these solutions still fail to prevent burnout. Why?
But what if these steps are not helping?
One of the most common fears among those who are finding it difficult to develop a good work-life balance involves career advancement. There is the fear that if one slows down at all then someone else will pass you on the ladder of success.
However, counterintuitive though it may be, taking time to make your life more well-rounded and satisfying can actually have immense benefits for your career.
At a very basic level, you simply cannot live on adrenaline and drive alone. At some point, your body or mind will give out on you. Maybe you’re already using substances to try to regain the energy you had when you first started out on this path. Or perhaps you just find yourself distracted, unfocused and frustrated by the limitations of your current state of life.
Even if you could continue as is, it is important to recognize that there is a better option.
You have put great effort into your education and efforts which have led to your success. Now you are ready to further your career while adding elements that fill your life with meaning, pride, connection and joy.
Invest in yourself
For example, you may have underlying insecurity that others in your life don’t see but which holds you back in some way. By working with a life coach, you can grow your self-esteem in a way that empowers you to take risks and grow both personally and professionally.
Similarly, if depression, anxiety or substance misuse are holding you back, working with a professional to free yourself will help you in all facets of your life, including the growth of your career.
