Becoming Your Best Self
Dec 19 @ 8:30 am – 12:45 pm

Within most healthcare and clinical settings, there is a constant push/pull of competing priorities around quality client care, productivity and clinician self-care. Often a clinician or behavioral health worker must make choices that put their client’s needs before their own. This often results in burnout, resentment, and lack of overall well-being for these caregivers. Utilizing a unique and highly effective coaching tool called the Results Roadmap™, you will have the opportunity to explore what’s most important to you regarding well-being and personal balance. In this half-day workshop, you will design a specific 90-day well-being plan that will focus on improving your energy, resiliency and overall ability to be of service to others, as well as more efficiently perform your roles within your organization.
