WIF High Tea: Managing Burnout and Balance (CANCELLED)
Managing Burnout and Balance
The Pandemic - what it taught us.
The last eighteen months, with all its turbulent ups and downs, has brought to the forefront what many have been avoiding for years: burnout.
As confidence plummeted, stress levels rose and on one hand we lost clarity and focus but on the other discovered things that we never knew about ourselves: Better relationships, stronger connections, a work life balance that had been desired for too long, and greater transparency on what was really important.
Can we hang on to that work/life balance that we desperately craved? Do we have the focus and motivation that we need to take the next step?
Please join us for High Tea with the fabulous Laura Piccardi - writer, speaker, performance coach and author of bestselling book Unfaked - along with our very own Women in Franchising National Award winners Wendy Donaldson and Liz Nable.
