Job burnout is a response to stress that leaves you feeling hopeless, powerless, despondent and overwhelmed. But, don’t despair you can do something about it! During this session you’ll learn this doesn’t happen overnight. Our bodies and minds do give us warning signs, and if you know what to look for, you can recognize it before exhaustion and ineffectiveness set in.

Join us to discover if you are at risk or are experiencing job burnout and we will brainstorm what you can do.

Note: We played the Dealing with Burnout video listed above during the session, but it was not captured in the recording. You can view the video using the link above.
