Courtney Clark

Are You On Fire at Work? Or Just Burned Out?”

As workplace stress becomes more and more common, employees are at risk of experiencing a phenomenon known as “burnout.” Research suggests several risk factors, as well as helpful solutions.
When you light the candle at both ends, it’s going to burn out pretty quickly. Yet that’s exactly what many of us do in our careers. We expel a great deal of effort to get ahead and get noticed, to rise to the top and be a leader, but at what cost to ourselves? How do you know if you are on fire or just burning yourself out?

Burnout can happen to any employee whose organization is going through changes or is struggling with employee-manager relations. In this session Courtney Clark will teach you not only how to manage that burnout and help you relight your flame and keep moving forward.
