Description

Course Overview

Over the past twenty years, resources have become tighter, organizations have had to restructure to meet economic demands and the nature of work has become far more uncertain than ever before. As a result, certain workplace stressors previously considered benign or “easy to manage” have increased in frequency and severity, elevating the risk for mental health issues. In particular, burnout has become a global pandemic, costing organizations between $250-300 billion a year. A 2013 Gallup poll suggests that 70% of American workers are experiencing some form of workplace disengagement. Burnout costs everyone, although the ultimate cost is to the worker’s health.

We hear from our customers all the time about the real need for programming to address workplace disengagement and burnout. In response, we have designed this program to educate our customers about the importance of workplace resilience. We believe everyone has the right to take on a challenge; we also believe everyone should have the right tools before going in.


Detailed Agenda

At a full day in length, curriculum for “Burnout Prevention for Project Professionals” is split into morning and afternoon sessions.

Morning:

  • important changes to the workplace
  • emotional intelligence and stress
  • the mechanics of burnout
  • stressors made worse by project work
  • identity management and reconfiguration
  • disengagement

Afternoon:

  • physiology of stress
  • maintaining your moral compass under pressure
  • designing your recovery
  • cognitive reframing
  • re-discovering engagement
  • additional stress management techniques

We have tailored this curriculum to work both from the perspective of project professionals looking to learn preventative techniques but also for organizations and PMO’s looking to incorporate burnout prevention into their policies.



Training Includes:

- complementary emotional intelligence testing
- 11 page, full-colour emotional intelligence feedback report
- 8.0 hours of PDU credit for PMI certificate holders
- 8.0 hours of CDU credit for IIBA certificate holders


Benefits

A full day of evidence-backed training aligning the latest emotion and social competency theory with the Project Management Institute's Competency Development Framework (PMCDF).

Participants will learn critical leadership skills that improve emotional acuity (the ability to perceive emotions in self and others) as well as emotional tolerance (the ability to manage increasing amounts of change and stress). Emphasis is placed on recalibrating expectations and taking charge of one's position in their environment.

Lessons are applicable immediately after completing the training.

"Burnout Prevention for Project Professionals" was designed by a certified former senior project manager with graduate level training in psychology.
