Does any of this sound familiar? Under pressure, juggling balls, plate spinning, carrying forward to-do lists, caring for kids, caring for parents, Supermum at home, Superwoman at work, domestic goddess in kitchen…
Multi-tasking is a badge of honour we wear with pride. But as the saying goes, pride comes before a fall – one that hurts so much that the road to burnout shines like a beacon with ‘ALARM’ ahead. A wake up call, or proceed with caution.
In Ann’s session ‘Empowering Women to Build Resilience and Reduce Stress’ you’ll begin to see for yourself how much our thoughts affect how we feel. We can do so much ourselves – we’re not victims of our circumstances, but sometimes it really feels like we are. You’ll learn ways of reducing stress and the importance of ‘putting on your own oxygen mask before assisting others’.
Throughout her career Ann’s specialised in the impact on people during organisational change, seeing that some thrive while others are traumatised, and supporting leaders and their teams through difficult transitions. Having now moved away from the corporate world, she continues to support people who have reached a ‘tipping point’ in their work or personal lives.
