Today I had an odd meeting with a client. Away from their offices, and as this is a financial organisation this is most unusual. Actually I had a meeting with one of them many years ago (last century in fact) at her home but that was more personal advice for someone at the end of her tether. By the way she is still working there today, senior and respected so hopefully my advice was good.
Anyway, today’s person is a youngish man, married with children. Working really hard and studying. Guess what, he’s “burnt out”.
I often wonder just how organisations believe people will thrive on too little sleep, too little family time, too little personal time.
