Overcome the Frustration of High Demand Workloads, Emotional Exhaustion, and Reduced Sense of Accomplishment to Avoid Burnout and Turnover
We are on the verge of a professional crisis in higher education as faculty, staff and administrators struggle to maintain their own well-being amongst greater expectations and higher demand workloads. Faculty, staff and administrators are experiencing burnout at alarming rates and institutions can no longer afford to ignore this critical issue without running the risk of decreased job performance, job dissatisfaction, burnout and employee turnover.
Our expert presenter discusses the current college work environment and how compassion fatigue and burnout are leading to emotional exhaustion, depersonalization or cynicism, and a reduced sense of personal accomplishment or efficacy. You will be able to build the resilience you need to avoid burnout – without “normalizing” the very culture that promotes burnout.
Learn the necessary strategies that are easily modified and incorporate practical interventions that foster grit, so that you can balance your professional work and personal lives in a more productive and less stressful manner.
Gain crucial, actionable takeaways so you can:
- Appreciate the unique challenges higher education faculty, staff and administrators have encountered because of the pandemic - set realistic expectations of work-life balance, offer opportunities for professional growth, and flourish as operations creep closer to pre-COVID operations.
- Recognize the signs and identify key indicators of burnout, compassion fatigue and vicarious trauma - create a culture of care on campus to ensure faculty, staff and administrators avoid experiencing any of these conditions.
- Develop strategies for reducing the impact of stress and anxiety on faculty, staff, and administrators - offer additional resources to improve their personal experience, job satisfaction and increase their productivity.
- Explore ways that intentional personal practices can mitigate burnout and sustain the capacity to care - be able to take care of yourself and one another by addressing the emotional and psychological toll your work takes on you and your team.
- Encourage faculty, staff, and administrators to take control of their own health and wellness before they become disengaged or experience negative health implications - normalize self-care and support so that they can continue to teach, support, and engage with students in a health way.
- Develop or enhance current intervention programs and awareness trainings so you can maintain or expand scope or gain additional resources to support faculty, staff, and administrators in need - improve personal/professional experience, enhance connections with students and fellow colleagues, and increase productivity and overall satisfaction as everyone begins to regroup and recharge.
