Cheerleading from Quicksand: How to Change Everything without Changing Everything

Key Objectives

• Recognize the 3 components of burnout• Understand strategies for breaking the stress cycle and beating burnout• Learn strategies for steadying your personal foundation with mental, physical, and emotional health interventions

The early 2020s disrupted the foundation under everyone, especially HR professionals. The last three years have brought rebuilding and a renewed focus, but our job continues to be cheerleading from quicksand: lifting up others while our own foundation remains rocky. There are things you can do to steady your own foundation, including focusing on your mental, emotional, and physical health; understanding the stress cycle and learning ways to avoid burnout.
