The Happy, Healthy Nonprofit Career: How to Avoid Burnout While Changing the World
The passion that nonprofit professionals feel for their work is a double-edged sword. On the one hand, that fervor helps them keep going in the face of difficult challenges, especially in the early stages of their careers. On the other hand, they can be so driven they don’t stop to refuel or smell the proverbial roses or even notice they are experiencing symptoms of burnout. This interactive workshop is based on Beth Kanter’s most recent book, The Happy Healthy Nonprofit: Strategies for Impact without Burnout.
It will cover:
- Burnout, Resilience, and Self-Care: What are they and why should students care about them?
- Take the Burnout Assessment
- Create a Self-Care Plan
