Career derailment: Burnout and bullying at the executive level
British Psychological Society, International Coaching Psychology Review
March 01, 2017
This phenomenological research focused on the factors that can prevent and manage executive career burnout and derailment. It detailed the subjective experiences of four high functioning professionals who had experienced executive derailment. Semi-structured interviews were conducted and data were analysed using interpretative phenomenological analysis (IPA). Results showed four key elements that tracked a trajectory from severe loss of identity, integrity and livelihood, to newly defined authenticity following derailment. The recognition that personal and professional growth can arise following executive derailment is a novel finding with important implications for leaders, managers and coaches. A positive psychological is shown to be helpful in harnessing change with executives following derailment.
