General Sessions

Out of the Frying Pan – Diagnosing, Curing & Preventing Burnout

Denise Ryan | Wednesday, August 23 | 9:00 - 10:30 AM

Denise Ryan

Does work that used to make you sizzle with excitement now just leave you feeling fried? Do you feel like you’re working harder than ever but not getting as much done? Do you fantasize about just taking a nap?

As we try to get more done with fewer people in less time, burnout rates are higher than ever. People are losing their passion, pep and productivity. Quiet quitting is a thing. But not at your HBA!

Join Denise Ryan, who helps light the fires of enthusiasm so people can do great things, and learn to:

  • Identify burnout in yourself and others
  • Gain tools to get you out of the frying pan and back on fire!
  • Be more effective AND put less pressure on yourself
  • Help your employees (or volunteers) deal with burnout

After this session, the only thing fried at your house will be chicken!

It's Not Personal. It's Generational!
