Are you burning out being "the boss"?
In an increasingly fast paced, complex and stressful world, we are being asked as leaders to be more “authentic", “vulnerable” and “empathetic”.
But at what cost?
There’s a well known area of psychological research known as compassion fatigue traditionally associated with the medical industry. In this session, we’ll discuss those principles in the context of your leadership role and how to bring your best self to work while practising self care.
Outline/Structure of the Talk
Storytelling and examples leading to the learning outcomes interspersed with practical tips and application.
This can also be run as a workshop where individuals can put into practice some of the learnings but would require 60-90 mins.
- Risk Factors for burnout and compassion fatigue
- Emotional, Physical & Spiritual Indicators
- Resiliency: Coping Mechanisms & practical techniques
People Leaders, Coaches and those in roles that require caring for other staff
Prerequisites for Attendees
I've spent the last few years at major banks with very strict speaking/PR policies, so have not presented publicly for a while apart from local meetups. I've presented at internal conferences at leadership forums at events up to 500 people. Happy to provide references if there are concerns over speaking skills.
Now that i've left CBA, i'm looking forward to growing that part of my career !
Recently started a consulting company focussed on leadership coaching and there are a handful of posts here.
Sandra is my wife and is a Veterinarian. She also runs a communication training and consultancy business. The veterinary suicide rate is 350% higher than the general population, so it's an important area to address for her. As we discussed the content in her compassion fatigue workshop, I saw a very interesting crossover with what modern day leaders are navigating and how we can help servant leaders survive in these tough times.
She's spoken at numerous veterinary conferences world-wide.
