Oct 07, 2020
10:00 am to 11:00 am

High-achievers who go unchecked can find themselves spiraling into high-functioning anxiety, high-functioning depression and burn out. This is even more true the higher up the executive ladder you climb. At this meeting, Executive Coach and Psychologist, Dr. Donna Marino, will share her advice on helping high-achieving leaders move from burnout to sustainable peak performance. Dr. Donna Marino will also discuss what this means as we all prepare to adapt to whatever new paradigms may arise given our recent unprecedented health and economic environment. 

You will walk away with ability to: 

  • Identify the characteristics of high achievers that make them more susceptible to burnout and the ability to identify employees that may need additional support. 
  • Understand the role of issues such as COVID-19, transition and working from home in burnout. 
  • Know the 3-pronged approach for preventing and recovering from burnout. 
  • Learn practical strategies that you can implement every day to keep you out of burnout so that you can feel great, support yourself and your employees and create sustainable peak performance in your organization.
