How to recognize someone who is ” burned out or about to burnout”.
It is incredible to see how many of these types of profiles are found in organizations and even how few of them are aware that they are and the impact of their behavior on the environment and the impact that the environment has on them as well.
You just need to look at a graph of a DISC report. Experience has also shown me the close relationship between this type of profile and the way in which he leads in his environment. Coincides with the typical profile of an NP3 (a person with skills but little motivation) are coincidentally characteristics of a person whose leader is “over-leading” or “under-leading” him, as bad one as the other. Depending on which graph you are in (natural or adapted) it is easier or more complicated to solve, because it implies how long you have been behaving like this. “Behavior is a function of the person based on their perception of the environment.”
In the DISC report you can see it when all the bars or dots are below the line of 50 or the middle line, if you see it in the adapted means has not been for long, but if you see it in the natural … OH MY GOD. A long coaching process awaits you if it is recoverable, or if you have reached the PNR (point of no return) a period of transition or imminent change awaits you. All this simply by having a look at a DISC graph and without having to read the entire DISC report.
However, at a behavioral level, the only way to get out of this, regardless of the path the person is going to follow, is to pull one of the engines, rather, the only engine that can get you out of there. He needs to emphasize seeing the situation as a challenge, set his sights on clear objectives, he needs to win and go solving steps that give him a slight shot of dopamine, empowerment and get him out of that situation of boredom and apathy. I guess you know I’m talking about empowering his “D”. Wow…all this seeing a simple DISC graphic. Simply a wonderful tool, enlightening, objective and pragmatic.
