Afternoon Session

Avoiding Burnout: Energy Traps and Energizing Solutions

Are you tired of being tired?  Do you suffer from “hurry sickness,” “life in the fast lane,” or “superhuman syndrome?”  It’s no secret that your personal and professional effectiveness suffers if you’re burned out. Find out if you fit one of these profiles and what you can do get in balance before you reach burnout. In this session, you’ll learn how to identify energy traps and how to avoid them.  We’ll discuss the connection between brain dominance and energy, and ways to reclaim zest and enthusiasm. You’ll learn how to identify what energizes you and develop an energy plan. Start using a “whole brain” not “half-brained approach to balancing your life.
