Luncheon: Beating Pandemic Chaos and Pathos Burnout by Building Resilience
After more than two years of pandemic chaos and fall out, burnout has reached epidemic proportions. Turns out we have a fundamental misunderstanding of what burnout actually is. Far from simply being “overwork”, burnout is a perspective more akin to job-induced depression -- it’s actually the flip side of “grit.” Expanding on insights from his Wall Street Journal bestselling book, Eric Barker explains the three perspective shifts that can pull people back from the brink and deliver the relief that vacations don’t. With the correct attitude, you and your team don’t need to dial back, you all can actually work long and hard and thrive in the process. In this essential talk, Barker delivers actionable insights on how to instill emotional intelligence and optimism to build and retain your perspective and your team that actually gets stronger under pressure.
