Burnout is, among others, characterized by a sense of low self-efficacy and reduced personal accomplishment. Coaching, with its founding principle that each one has its own solutions and strengths to achieve its objectives, uses the resources of the coachee, which generates the involvement and motivation of the coachee towards his work.

Coaching questions the assumptions and aligns values with the meaning one wants to give to his work and life, to increase the personal and professional satisfaction.

Coaching is therefore, by nature, an effective preventive measure to burnout.

The preventive work of coaching can be done by supporting individuals in reinforcing and/or learning some competencies and attitudes to fight against the development of burnout. Coaching can also be an effective supporting tool post burnout at the return to work after a period of sick leave.
