The Happy, Healthy Nonprofit: Self-Care for Nonprofit Professionals
Presented by Beth Kanter, Nonprofit Author, Coach, Trainer, and Blogger
$60 Member, $95 non-member
An organization’s work may be mission-based, but its people are mission critical. And if you are burned out, you can’t serve your stakeholders or deliver your nonprofit’s mission or even succeed in your career. Nonprofits are operating in a climate of uncertainty and limited resources which requires resilience for high performance.
The passion that nonprofit professionals feel for their work is a double-edged sword. On the one hand, that fervor helps them keep going in the face of difficult challenges. On the other hand, they can be so driven they don’t stop to refuel or smell the proverbial roses or even notice they are experiencing symptoms of burnout. This interactive workshop is based on her new book, The Happy Healthy Nonprofit: Strategies for Impact without Burnout (http://bit.ly/happyhealthynpbook).
- Take a self-assessment to determine burnout symptoms and opportunities to create self-care habits
- Discuss and share tips and methods for self-care activities that go beyond physical health
- Make a commitment to implementing one small self-care activity post workshop
Who should attend: This session is appropriate for all nonprofit staff!
