Avoiding burnout while leading in a non-stop world

Living strategically in a non-stop world means leaders must “check in” on their inner world. It also requires diligent curiosity about your behaviors and managing physical, emotional and psychological limitations.

In this presentation, Mike Foster will outline a framework for effectively managing burnout and emotional exhaustion. Get clarity on your current level of burnout, develop rules for strategic self-care and be equipped with a custom strategy for going the distance.
