Webinar: Burnout Strategies for Educational Professionals
It's a reality that burnout is high in the educational arena for both educational leaders and administrative staff. Compassion fatigue and basic physical weariness take their toll. Are you having to do more with less? How do you maintain productivity standards and prevent fatigue? Are there REALLY coping mechanisms which provide successful solutions for educational leaders? The answer is YES. With the right strategies, educational leaders, faculty, and staff can cope and thrive! If this sounds all too familiar...this webinar is for you.

The presenter, Debra Saffo, is President of The NiKhar Group - an educational curriculum and workforce company she established after being sought after to develop and conduct professional development for educational and business organizations. Debra brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise in the area of workforce development and curriculum services.

This webinar will take place on November 4, from noon - 1 p.m., and it is open to all full and part time faculty and staff. You may click here to register.
