From Frazzle to Dazzle: How to Avoid Burnout and Inspire Others
Human resources are the lifeblood of an organization. HR professionals give 110% and may find themselves giving and caring too much. Coupled with the massive disruptions and changes over the last few years, it is no wonder that many may feel stressed and burned out. While it is crucial to support your employees’ mental health, it is even more critical during this time for HR professionals to take care of themselves first. In her program “From Frazzle to Dazzle: How to Avoid HR Burnout and Inspire Others,” Christin brings attendees on a journey to discover that the tools to calm this storm already lie inside each of us. She explains that if you can shift your mindset and see alternative ways to experience any given situation, you can make decisions openly and calmly. By incorporating these practices into your daily routine, HR professionals can safeguard their own well-being, boost staff retention, and showcase the organization’s genuine concern for employees’ welfare.
