The level of burnout we are experiencing — women especially — has become the number one issue affecting productivity in the workplace. It affects our ability to be resilient, perform self-care and be open about our challenges to get necessary support.
We need to look at our habits to prevent burnout or possibly becoming a repeat burnout offender. To break the burnout cycle, we need to start adapting our routines, our habits and our behaviors to build sustainable performance tools over time. During this session, I will share small but meaningful actions that we can take to advocate for our own mental health within the workplace and combat workplace burnout.
