Career coaching: Stressed 

Career coaching: Stressed. Are you actually more stressed than you think you are? I realise this sounds like a daft question, but I had a wake-up call that went through to my core today. With the pandemic, decreasing budgets and the drive to deliver increasing in corporate, the pressure has really been on.

.

Having spent three weeks in Crete, today I began my weekly schedule of sending my zoom links out for coaching sessions. And, I could not believe my diary!!!!
.
How had I thought before I left that I could fit 5 or 6, 90-minute coaching sessions into each and every working day this week? And that’s BEFORE all the other activities running two businesses takes…. I felt sick at the sight of it and as much as I adore my clients, my fingers were tightly crossed that one or two of them might drop out? Postpone? Reschedule? Please!
.
This was not the worst bit though – I’m a grafter. I show up where I said I would. I’m a good coach. The worst bit was the realisation that I had been doing this for NINE MONTHS beforehand.

“However, I had got USED to feeling this stressed”
I have had a busy coaching practice for a decade. Having a busy practice AND founding a new business has tipped me into my ‘responsible workaholic’ self & it WILL break me if I don’t stop and find a different way. However, I had got USED to feeling this stressed. I had got used to feeling unwell, I had got used to behaving like a Harridan on the domestic front.

Career coaching: Stressed 

I was, I AM, just like that frog placed in a pan of cool water who finds she’s boiling without even noticing.
So, I’m just asking again – Are you actually more stressed than you think you are? Or, are you simmering and wondering exactly what’s wrong. The corporates, the SMEs, you Sole traders and founders have all been through such tricky times in the last 18 months, the pressure has REALLY been on. And, this pressure is unsustainable
.
I’ve got some big changes to make. Have you – is it time you pushed back and took control again?
