Banish the Burnout: Embrace Your Inner Resiliency Ninja

If you’ve ever said you’re “busy” or felt stressed because of your workload, then this session is for you! As a talented, high-achieving professional you’ll always have too much to do in too little time with too few resources. The good news is that working in a high-intensity environment with lots of change does not mean you have to live a stressful life. That’s the Resiliency Ninja way.

This workshop will shift your thinking about stress, obstacles and adversity and illustrate how mastering everyday resilience will have a profound impact on your overall quality of life and work results. Taking your resilience muscles to the next level will improve your inner strength, allow you to metabolize unhealthy stress faster and inspire you to rise stronger and more successful than before, no matter what challenges you face.

In this workshop you will learn:

  • How you can minimize bad and unhealthy stress even as you work in a high intensity environment with conflicting priorities and too much to do
  • A super simple system to objectively look at your problems, reframe them and choose the right tools to overcome obstacles
  • Simple ways to stop destructive habits that may hold you back, such as worry, drama and self-sabotage
Target Audience:
Board members, executive directors, support staff, managers, human resources professionals, program staff...everyone has experienced burnout at some point and could use some new ways and tools to deal with stress
