Dangers of Burnout and the Leadership Needs for Self Care in the Health Industry

In the digital age, Emotional Fitness will be more critical than ever to the quality of our lives. It remains the most accurate predictor of success and happiness. This is because we experience the world emotionally - not cognitively. We make most major decisions based on how we feel - not what we think. And it is these feelings that guide the actions we take. Therefore our emotions determine the entire experience of our lives. The 3 emotions that drive and motivate us in life more than any other are: Love, Hate, and Fear. Being Emotionally Fit is to know what motivates you and to be in charge of how you feel. No matter what your health or entrepreneurial challenges are it is the key to overcoming them, reaching your highest potential, and controlling the quality of your own life.

Natasha Sharma is a Clinic Owner, Therapist, TV & Media Personality, Speaker and Doctoral Candidate. She is also the author of The Kindness Journal, a guided daily journal for cultivating a more positive outlook and happier life.

In 2007, Natasha walked away from her 6-figure salary job that "a million girls would kill for" - traveling first class around the world as a marketing representative for a fashion and cosmetics company - and went back to graduate school to study psychology at Johns Hopkins. Since then, she has been devoted to inspiring and helping others to master emotional fitness, learn how to be happier, and live their most fulfilling lives. In 2012, Natasha founded her clinic NKS Therapy in Toronto. She has worked with thousands of individuals, couples, and families in counselling and psychological assessment.

As a seasoned expert in the Media, Natasha’s advice and commentary on emotional wellness have been featured nationally in The Globe & Mail, The Toronto Star, The Huffington Post, and Elle Canada. She’s a regular guest on some of Canada’s most popular TV shows including Breakfast Television and Global News Toronto. She’s also a contributor to the globally renowned Yummy Mummy Club, and lends her knowledge as a Speaker at events and institutions that include TED, McMaster University, Harvard University, The University of Maryland, and private corporations, conferences, and conventions.

Natasha’s personal decision to have made a significant and risky shift in her own career years ago has made her especially passionate about helping people become “emotionally fit”, feel happier, and ultimately to live life better.

Health Leadership Academy

With the generous funding of Michael G. DeGroote, the Faculties of Business and Health Sciences have come together to present the Health Leadership Academy (HLA). This Academy aligns closely with the mission, vision and values of its two founding Faculties, and will be specifically aimed at producing the best health leaders of tomorrow. To make a transformative impact on all levels of the health system the HLA will develop current and future health leaders with the capacity to identify, support and operationalize new ways of “thinking” and “doing” within a rapidly evolving health environment. The HLA’s goal is to be recognized as Canada’s preeminent Academy for health leadership and innovation with a reputation for creating and disseminating original work that intersects the areas of action-oriented learning, research and community engagement.

Collaboratorium Talks

Why: Our Collaboratorium is a place to learn about and share health innovations that are being nurtured within McMaster University, and we’ve designed a series of talks to introduce you to new academic content, pique your interest in new pedagogies, and highlight projects underway in health innovation.

Where: Michael G. DeGroote Health Leadership Academy (HLA), DeGroote School of Business, Ron Joyce Centre, 4th Floor, Dean's Lounge.
