The passion you feel about your work as a nonprofit professional is a double-edged sword.
Your commitment helps you keep going in the face of difficult times. Yet, you can be so driven you don’t stop to refuel (or smell the proverbial roses), or even notice you might be experiencing symptoms of burnout.
Based on her new book, The Happy Healthy Nonprofit: Strategies for Impact without Burnout (co-authored with Aliza Sherman), Beth Kanter will lead an interactive session where you'll:
- Take a self-assessment to determine burnout symptoms and opportunities to create self-care habits
- Discuss and share tips and methods for self-care activities that go beyond physical health
- Make a commitment to implementing one small self-care activity post workshop
All workshop participants get a copy of the book and time to have it signed at the end of the session!
This workshop is for nonprofit staff only, whether paid or volunteer. Due to limited space, please no consultants or trainers.
