A recent Deloitte survey showed that 53% of women are more stressed this year than they were a year ago, and 46% feel burned out. Having the right strategies to effectively manage stress and deal with burnout in healthy and effective ways can help with achieving work/life balance, maintaining a healthy lifestyle, and continuing to be productive and engaged at work.

Managing stress and addressing burnout is not only about having the right tools or a list of things to do to cope. It requires being aware of your triggers for stress and how you perceive and respond to them, as well as being intentional about the strategies you use. This session will focus on the INTENT Framework for Stress and Burnout

  • How stress manifests itself and impacts your work, relationships, and behaviours
  • How you can align your actions with your values to manage stress in ways that prevent burnout and foster resilience
  • How to turn stress into an opportunity for growth
  • How to identify and implement realistic and easy-to-maintain strategies for managing stress, addressing burnout, and learning to adapt better to unforeseen changes

Session Key Takeaways:

  • Learn how to effectively manage stress to become aware of how stress affects you, how you perceive it, and how you respond to it
  • Discover when to use problem-focused coping or emotion-focused coping to deal with stress
  • Discover ways to deal with stress and address burnout. The strategies you choose should make sense for you and fit into your life. They shouldn’t just be based on what’s trending

This session is for you if…you have a basic understanding of stress and how to manage it, but are looking for ways to make stress management a habit and not an afterthought.
