Stressed. Work Overload. Time Poor. Distracted. Disconnected. Disengaged. Burned Out. What can we do about it?

Burnout has been labeled as the biggest occupational hazard of our time.  It happens more than we would like to acknowledge, and often with high achievers.  The impact of burnout is crippling, not just for the individuals who are burned out, but also for the teams they work in and the organizations and communities.

If you want to prevent burnout, build stress resilience and find joy in your life, this is for you.
