PMSA Western Cape welcomes you to our June 2017 Event – a discussion on Burnout presented by Dieter Jansen.


Burn-out is a term we use, hear about, but for the most part, misunderstand and ignore. Resilience, or the ability to function in an ever-changing, fast-paced world, has been identified as one of the key survival skills required for the 21st Century. Yet if we don’t understand the phenomenon, how do we work to prevent it?

In this talk, Dieter Jansen shares his personal experiences with burn-out, what led up to it, what the consequences were, and the changes that were required in order to recover well. He also details some scary statistics about the success of recovering fully, and finally debunks the resilience myth – explaining what resilience really means.

Attendees at this talk can expect to be challenged to investigate their own unique situations to discover whether they are building an environment that helps cause, or helps prevent, burn-out, not only in themselves, but also in their organizations.



Biography – Dieter Jansen

Dieter started as a Metallurgist in the armaments industry, then joined an R&D institute which consulted to the casting and forging industry. This led him to a position at an automotive wheel factory, initially in design, then production management.

In 2002 he realized that technical improvements only take them so far, and discovered John Maxwell’s book “The 17 Indisputable Laws of Teamwork”.

The team studied 4 of Maxwell’s books, where they raised their level of leadership skill, thereby enabling them to run the 250-man foundry at world-class standards.

Dieter was then appointed as HR Director.

After 2 years of executive management, he decided to move into the consulting arena.

In 2005 he joined a consulting firm involved in Business Process Management projects. In 2010 he became a shareholder in the business and built up the Western Cape regional office, and a representative on the company’s Executive Committee. During this time he trained all the senior consultants in leadership and influencing skills, and regularly lectured for the University of Cape Town’s IT postgraduate diplomas, covering topics around the need for soft skills in the “real” world.

One aspect was always clear: Development of people on a character level, translates to all that they do and impacts their results. It is inspiring for him because he’s able to contribute positively, and because he learns also.


He joined the JMT in 2013 to develop further as a leadership coach, trainer and speaker, and to pass these learnings on to family, colleagues and clients.

In 2014 he founded Dieter Jansen Group in order to follow this passion and pursue the people development arena full time. His hands-on experience in the blue-collar, research, executive management and consulting environments, within multiple industries, is proof that the Maxwell leadership principles are powerful and applicable at all levels.

His coaching style can be described as intuitive, calm, patient, faithful and integruous.

The Dieter Jansen Group has developed a few programs, ranging from a subscription-based mentorship program, to high-end 2-day retreats for individuals and corporates, normally held in game parks in the South African bushveld.
