The Brilliance of Resilience

The burnout crisis is real, and the numbers are staggering. 23% of employees are chronically burned out, and 47% more are headed in that direction. So how do you keep your team functioning when times are tough? You know, when everyone is already at full capacity and the project deadline moves up, increasing the workload. Or a key team member leaves and there’s no one to fill the gap.

Answer: Be a strong, adaptable team leader that cultivates resilient teams.

Resilience is the capacity to recover from difficulties. It’s foundational to embracing growth and beating burnout in the face of challenge. This session teaches key skills to create psychologically safe spaces that support resilience in our teams and ourselves, including:
·         Choosing curiosity over judgement
·         Making it okay to be not okay
·         Engaging in compassionate self-talk
·         Crushing the stigma around admitting we’re overwhelmed

This open, honest, and funny program looks at how to embrace imperfection and choose resilience and growth over burnout and frustration.
