Avoiding Burnout While Changing the World

In the world of education, we are all servant leaders constantly striving to improve the lives of our constituents. Most of us want to be doing this work for the long haul, but being an educator is tough work that can take its toll over time if you’re not putting the oxygen mask on yourself first. This highly interactive session will discuss why managing your energy – not your time – is key to developing resilience and will provide you with tools and techniques for upping your energy and avoiding burnout. You will walk away with a detailed plan for addressing your most pressing energy deficits!
