80 hour work weeks. Double-booked meetings. Late night phone calls. More than ever, it seems like the norm is to be working out of a space of busyness and overwhelm. Being under constant stress not only makes us less productive, effective and creative, but it can also lead to burnout. In this workshop, you'll learn about what burnout is and what causes it. More importantly, you'll walk away knowing that you don't need to sacrifice your health and run yourself ragged in order to achieve professional success. It's not only possible to integrate your work with self-care, but it's essential in order to be at your best every day.
