It doesn't just happen to others...

  • For the WHO, burnout is "a syndrome conceptualized as resulting from chronic workplace stress that has not been successfully managed". (ICD-11, May 2019)
  • 1 out of 2 managers claims to have already suffered burnout. For 63% this is due to work pressure and for 46%, a lack of managerial support. At the same time, 87% of managers feel that they are little or not at all equipped to deal with burnout. Cadre Emploi study, June 2019.
  • Santé publique France estimates that 500,000 people a year suffer from work-related mental illness.
  • France ranks as one of the worst European countries for work-related stress, according to a survey by Automatic Data Processing. "We are still among the most anxious employees, with almost 1 in 5 (19%) experiencing daily stress at work. In this context, 31% of French people think that their employer is not at all interested in their psychological well-being and 41% say that their interest is only superficial, which is in both cases higher than the European average.

We became aware of the importance of feedback for the team

"When we brought Suzanne Peters in, the company had won a lot of business and we had to deliver the products to the customers. There was a lot of pressure on the supply chain, especially as it had to grow to meet the need. The team was fully committed to their tasks and didn't have much time to dedicate to their emotional and mental wellbeing. Within eight months from each other, we spent two half-days to put words to the notion of stress, to learn how to recognise it. We learned simple techniques to manage our relationship with stress, such as the concept of an "emotional bank account". We became aware of the importance of feedback for the team. Following this seminar, we have placed more importance on having a postive work environment and took full advantage of this very rich professional experience. We reached our goals, all together. Thank you Suzanne.

Rebuilding my confidence in many aspects of my work

"I worked with Suzanne for 12 months. Her contribution was considerable: she made me aware of a situation of near burnout that I had not detected. She sent me to the right professionals for the necessary medical care. After a few weeks, we were able to start working on a variety of topics: time management at work, stress reduction, team management, relationships with colleagues and managers, non-violent communication in difficult conversations, etc. With Suzanne, I gained awareness, I understood, I put challenges and difficulties into words, I took action and I managed to rebuild my confidence in many aspects of my work. Suzanne also recommended many tools and resources: books, training, apps, etc. Her resources are inexhaustible."
