If you are reading this, there is a good chance that you’ve suffered from burnout at some point in your life. Perhaps you have also witnessed friends, colleagues or even whole organizations in various levels of exhaustion. Drawing from the collective wisdom of all participants, we will examine what burnout looks like, how it can be prevented, and ways it can be addressed. On the flip side, you will be invited to examine what resiliency looks like for you. Together we will explore various tips and tools to ensure that when things get tough, we can all bounce back a little faster.
