Self-Care for HR Professionals (well, really for anyone)

Let’s face it, the last couple of years have certainly been the most volatile and uncertain – a rollercoaster of emotions for sure.  With a pandemic, isolation, and social challenges, it has been a very difficult time for everyone.  Our mental health, our individual well-being and our resiliency have been tested.  Our ability to bounce back from the stresses of life is a necessity we need not only for ourselves but for our employers and employees too.

One of our goals is to give you data to help you have better dialogue within your organizations around mental health.  We also know that we must take care of ourselves before we can care for others.  And this session is intended to help either start this conversation or encourage you to continue this conversation, so our best self can show up in every environment.

We want you to learn about:

  • Signs and symptoms of burnout and fatigue
  • How to recognize burnout in yourself and others while using the 4 D’s
  • Compassion fatigue and prevention strategies
  • Strategies to develop personal resilience
  • How to create a self-care plan for different areas of your life
