What you will learn:

From the pandemic to racial violence to political upheaval and more, stress is the air we're breathing here in the 2020s. We are experiencing it ourselves, and are surrounded by others who are struggling, as well. In fact, 83% of U.S. workers report suffering from work-related stress, and a quarter say that work is the number one stressor in their lives.

When we fail to manage our stress, it can affect our mental and physical health, our relationships, and our success at work. Unfortunately, it's not always easy to manage stress effectively. Burnout and compassion fatigue can creep in slowly and may not be easy to recognize. In this session, learn to identify the signs of burnout and ways to prevent it, including both daily commitments to self-care and greater life shifts for more balance and control.

Participants said they were grateful for the "concrete strategies that I can apply in my professional and personal life" and the "awareness that I am not alone in my stress." "We have heard from several of our teams how centering and inspiring they found [this training] during a very difficult season."
