If you’ve ever googled, “how do I know I’m experiencing burnout?” or “what does an executive coach do?” then this episode is for you!

Honestly, am I the only person who didn’t really get what a leadership coach does? Well, tune in to this episode and (like me!) you’ll finally understand the importance of one!

Emily has nearly two decades of experience helping organizations and their staff confront their vulnerabilities and build sustainable, scalable solutions. She shares why prioritizing your own health and well-being (personal and financial!) helps you be a better, more effective leader and how engaging a coach can help you reach your goals.

What we’re talking about:

  • Leadership can be so fulfilling, but also draining.

  • It’s okay to define success as working towards an executive level position. But it’s also okay to change your mind, take a pause, reflect, and shift.

  • The warning signs of career burnout. This Harvard Business Review article says the following are questions women should ask themselves:  

    • Am I regularly physically and emotionally exhausted? 

    • Are you more cynical and detached than usual? 

    • Are you feeling like you’re not contributing anything meaningful, where you once were?

  • How taking a medical leave of absence allowed Emily to dig deep and realize how to live in her values. Her three priorities now are Integrity, Health and Wellness, and Contribution - both to herself and her community.

  • Emily’s approach to money and how her saving up to 50% of her income each year allows her to travel, pursue professional development for her own career, and yes, allowed her to take time off when she experienced the physical effects of burnout.

  • What exactly it means to work with an executive coach:

    • Will help you define your values and identify what you want in life.

    • Will be a thought partner to help YOU figure out what YOU want to pursue.

    • Will identify the voice of your inner critic, and hold you accountable for doing the hard work for yourself.

  • When do you know it’s the right time to work with a leadership/executive coach?

    • If you want to grow as a leader

    • If you’re feeling stuck in something in your life

    • If you’re trying to make a big decision about yourself or your family

    • If you feel like your life is out of balance

  • Companies will sometimes provide development money to hire a coach. Don’t forget to know your company benefits!

  • HR tips:

    • What to understand when searching for a job right now

    • How current managers, facing the challenge of letting employees go, can do so compassionately
