Burnout and Stress Prevention
When a storm is coming, you have to "reef" the sails, secure the equipment and put on the life vests! Better safe than sorry. Once the ship is damaged, the costs will run high!
On an organizational level, prevention of burnout and stress is no simple task. Organizations and people are complex systems in which the root causes of dysfunction are not always visible.
Before the symptoms of dysfunction start to show, a lot of damage is already done. Mostly curative measures are then employed. Short-term, this gives some relief and solace. However, in our handling of burnout and stress on an organizational level, we choose a preventive approach. Most of the time, we are able to limit the initial damage and prevent worse.

Based on our findings, we then propose the most appropriate approach on organizational, team and individual levels.
