Confident Conversations is a weekly podcast show for ambitious women about confidently balancing work and life, hosted by me, Sherry Bevan, Author, Coach & Speaker. Because I love having conversations about career and confidence.

This week’s episode

In a previous episode (CC001) I talked about overwhelm: signs we might notice, why we experience it, and how we can cope or even better prevent it.

This week’s episode is about how to spot the signs of stress or overwhelm in our partners and how to deal with it.

Gill Walton dealing with stress and overwhelm

I turned to Gill Walton at Purple Skies Consulting to find out more about this topic. Gill works with people who are stuck in their careers and need help getting unstuck. And sometimes it’s stress that’s keeping them stuck.

In the show we discuss:

  • Signs of overwhelm, stress or burnout in our partners
  • What we can do to support them
  • How men deal with overwhelm and stress differently, putting emotions to one side
  • Why men walk out of the room when they come home to a stressfest
  • The caveman’s reaction to a fight or flight situation

Gill’s top tip for ambitious women “It’s not the stress that is destructive, but the way that we respond to the stress”.
