NSW WIF High Tea: Burnout, confidence and finding balance
The Pandemic: what it taught us about burnout, confidence and finding balance.
With all the turbulent ups and downs of the last few years, the pandemic brought to the forefront what many have been avoiding for years, burnout. 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.
As we dive into 2022 and beyond, what does the new normal look like. How have we learnt to manage burnout? Can we hang on to that work life balance that we desperately craved? Will our time away from our desks and the frantic pace give us the focus and motivation that we need to take the next step?
Please join us for a Women in Franchising 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 winners Liz Nable, Wendy Donaldson and Karen Purcell.
