The pressing fiscal demands and diminished staffing every agency confronts can cause a toxic work environment that leads to burn-out and illness as the seemingly unending urgency to agency life goes on and on.

This seminar offers a corrective to traditional models of time management and places at its center tools and techniques that help leaders engage in self-care on the job. By offering a model of transformational leadership based on 'leadership from within,' this seminar frames leadership in ways that build resilience, expands reliance on teamwork, and connects staff to "legacy work" that inspires and energizes even in times of genuine difficulty.

Activities, exercises and reflections will be offered throughout on addressing dynamics of urgency, burn-out, self-care, handling difficult staff, and how to heal while remaining productive.
