“Paul Saunders ( James River Capital) on Burnout “

There is a lot of discussion in any company about it becoming tense, stressful, and finally having a burnout. This happens from the smallest companies to world- wide corporations.

There are warning signs and things that could be addressed head on, instead of later.

Paul Saunders, the founder and principal of the James River Capital Corporation, it is located in Richmond, VA. There are also affiliate companies. The company is an investment firm that came to be its own in 1995. They provide investment advisory services. Paul knows all too well about the stresses and burnouts of a company, He has came up with strategies that will work for any company. A lot of companies may have followed his advice.

He likes to have employees take at at least 10-15 minutes( every morning) of time, to revise on their goals for that day and ways to stay in control of how things go for them that day, the best way they can. Also given them this time will make them feel less constricted about how the day will go.

Paul also states, that employees can feel overlooked for all the work that they are doing or just not being compensated as they should. This could very well lead to a negative attitude towards the company and a feeling of a burnout eventually. Being honest and communicating will eliminate at lot of these feelings, but remembering to give reasonable feedback to the employees.

Some things are beyond the companies doing, sometimes it is the employee simply losing confidence in their work(we all have experienced this). Recognizing that the quality of their work is declining, checking in with the employee and setting reasonable personal goals, can aid in the employee regaining their confidence in the workplace. The goal does not have to be extravagant, but realistic and achievable goals. Setting goals could help the employee make sure they have a long-term success within the company.

Paul Saunders has written a blog about preventing burnout in the employees. Being that he has several positions within his company, not only being the founder and principal, but the Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. He has recognized the burnouts and decided to build a strategic plan. Having a company of employees with constant set goals will not only set the long-term goal for employees, but for the company as well. Learn more: https://vimeo.com/272365860
