Stop Burnout: Five Steps to Re-Energize Your Work for Your Best Year Ever

Burnout is real and affects all industries and employees at every level from CEO's to administrative assistants. In some professions, like medicine, it's rampant and has dangerous consequences. Learn what burnout is and isn't, why it's dangerous, and strategies and tools for addressing it. You'll explore how to:

  1. Recognize burnout–knowing how it’s different from stress
  2. Identify the causes–both internal and external
  3. Own it and minimize burnout at work
  4. Explore alternatives:  why enjoying your job is an inside job
  5. Decide what you want:  realizing there are always choices

Designed specially for librarians and library staff, this interactive Zoom workshop will be your best New Year’s resolution. Don’t miss it!
