Let's face it! Bottom-line, big picture, "BURNOUT" is a given occupational hazard of living in today's world.  It's just the nature of the beast that this 24/7 technologically driven ecosystem calls for.  To make matters worse, having a career and being impassioned by S.T.E.M. related work has the added potential to take the frequency and magnitude of Burnout to "A-Whole-Nother-Level"! 

BUT (can the church say "BUT")! BUT, IT DOESN'T HAVE TO BE THAT WAY!!! 

The Good News is that when armed with intentionality, boundaries and a plan, burnout doesn't have to be your modus operandi.  We can still personally/professionally thrive, live well, love well and give well despite the demanding and dynamic nature of our industry.

During this workshop we will focus on:
     1.  Understanding the real (and sometimes not so obvious) impact of unbridled acute and
          chronic burnout 
     2.  How to identify causes and symptoms of early onset or full on burnout
     3.  Getting your Zen back:
         - Review strategies and routines to overcome burnout
         - Develop a personalized plan for maintaining balance
