Understanding Burnout

Burnout can manifest in many forms. Here are some examples

  1. Feeling emotionally drained and exhausted

  2. Having trouble sleeping or feeling constantly tired

  3. Losing motivation and interest in work or other activities

  4. Experiencing a sense of cynicism or detachment from work and colleagues

  5. Feeling overwhelmed and unable to cope with the demands of work or life

  6. Becoming irritable or easily frustrated

  7. Developing physical symptoms such as headaches or stomach problems

  8. Feeling like you're not making progress or achieving your goals despite putting in a lot of effort.

Research shows that burnout can lead to decreased job performance, job satisfaction, and overall well-being. In fact, a Gallup survey found that 23% of employees feel burned out at work very often or always, while an additional 44% feel burned out sometimes. This means that nearly two-thirds of employees experience burnout at some point. Another study by Harvard Business Review found that the united states alone spend more than $190 Billion annually in healthcare to address the physical and psychological effects of burnout in the average working professional.


Burnout is a state of emotional, physical, and mental exhaustion caused by prolonged stress and overwork, and it is one of the greatest dangers facing professionals today. At Croswell Coaching, we understand the challenges that busy executives and high-achieving professionals face when it comes to burnout.
