Millions of Mid-Career Professionals Become Emotionally Unwell and ill Each Year, From The Stress of Difficult Work Relationships
Have you ever wondered why so many mid-career professionals develop emotional and mental unwellness each year at work?
Over the past few weeks, I have heard the following comments from my mid-career professional clients.
What They are Saying
“I took a buyout rather than put up with the chaos at work any longer”
“They owe me for the pain and heartache I have endured for the past decade”
“If I would fall over and die of a heart attack today it would largely have to do with the pain and hurt I suffer at work”
“I have gained weight and suffer a terrible blow to my professional and personals self-esteem because of the interactions at work”
“The silence at work is suffocating me. Communication is a big issue”
Actions To Take
The answer to these problems lies in finding new ways to develop interpersonal relationship skills. We offer a great relationship audit to help you discover how well you are doing in your work relationship and how to make some quick changes to repair your relationship.
If you are an employer, you need to address these issues sooner rather than later as by leaving it too long you may get also lose the commitment of your busy mid-career professionals who have little tolerance for leaders who do not step up to the plate and lead when it’s evident something is wrong.
If you are a mid-career professional, It is important that you do take the steps to assess your own perspectives and whether there is something you should be doing differently to change the relationship. The audit is a great way to deal with that.
The first thing you will need to decide is what’s happening and what’s your perspective or attitude about it. Take the audit here and let me know what you think.
