Preventing a Burnout Epidemic

The change to our work and home life happened rapidly and without notice. Since March 2020, many of us have been operating in crisis mode: making quick pivots, learning new policies and processes on the fly, and working from home while juggling family priorities—all under the mental fog of chronic stress and fear. Burnout is real and its increased significantly since the pandemic struck.

As we wade into unchartered waters unlike any other time in our careers, we need the resources to lead in this unique time. Jennifer Moss, globally recognized as an expert in burnout and author of the book, The Burnout Epidemic, can provide the strategies to navigate these challenging times. Moss will discuss the prevention strategies and tactics to manage burnout in a time of extreme stress. She will walk you through our current realities, and provide tangible solutions to battling burnout—helping leaders to distinguish between perks and prevention, and where self-care is not the cure. Most notably, Moss can offer hope for a healthy and high-performing workforce today and in a post-pandemic world.

Unlocking Happiness at Work

​Can you really be both “happy” and “at work”?  All of us want to be happy and engaged and satisfied with our job or in the career we’ve chosen. Loving work makes us less stressed, decreases our boredom, increases our motivation, and positively impacts our personal lives. As leaders, we want happier employees because they are more engaged and approach their work with enthusiasm and innovative perspectives. Studies show that employee disengagement increases anxiety and stress, negatively impacting health and well-being. Since we spend 120,000 hours at work in our lifetime, this is a critical issue for all of us.

  • A deeper understanding of neuroplasticity and how to leverage it for a happier personal and professional life.

  • The tools to reframe stressful experiences through cognitive resilience building.
