The Flames of Burnout and Stress Continue to Rise...Learn Effective and Immediate Techniques that will Extinguish the Fires,and offer you Access to Amazing Work Life Balance

The health care workforce burnout epidemic is a national crisis and chances are YOU are at risk. Are you running out of hours in the day? Is life moving too fast? Do you continually feel behind at home and at work? Are your clients, patients, students, or family suffering because you are spread too thin? Regardless of your many roles, be they therapist, nurse, educator, parent, and/or caregiver, you are, more than likely, routinely asked to do more with less, and to fit more into each day. These high demands can frequently leave you behind schedule, frustrated, exhausted, and disorganized.

This unique, enlightening recording will demonstrate how to overcome this crisis, adding hours to your days by arming you with tools for combating burnout, disorganization, stress, and fatigue. Time management skills are necessary for anyone, but they are particularly critical for professionals whose job it is to care for others.
