Identifying Burnout for Yourself and or Your Denal Practice’s Team members
In today’s fast-paced and demanding work environment, dental professionals often find themselves susceptible to burnout. As a dental consultant and leadership coach, I see this happening every single day. The accumulation of responsibilities when running a business can take a toll on your well-being and job satisfaction. There are high expectations to clinically produce, and pressure to keep pace with the ever-evolving challenges in the dental industry. All of this makes your job extremely stressful.
However, by recognizing that there are signs of burnout and beginning to implement strategies to adapt, cope, and move forward; dentists and practice owners can manage their hardships, regain a sense of fulfillment and balance in their professional lives and personal lives.
Before we dig into how to go about creating a healthier and more productive work-life balance, here are some general burnout statistics I would like to share.
• In a Deloitte survey, 56% of workers say that their managers did not encourage conversations addressing burnout.
• 77% say they have experienced employee burnout at their current job, with more than half citing more than one occurrence.
