Come join your fellow coaches to discuss methods for helping clients move beyond burnout. Burnout is on the rise among professionals everywhere – especially those in nursing, teaching, clergy/spiritual leadership, and other helping professions.

This workshop includes two brief presentations on working coaching models for: 1. supporting clients to identify risk factors for burnout and 2. evoking clients’ awareness of underlying habits, behaviors, structures, and beliefs that contribute to burnout. 3. using client insights as a roadmap for designing actions to support their resilience, effectiveness, and overall wellbeing. After these short presentations, we will engage in open discussion and sharing of best practices for coaching clients experiencing burnout including
common pitfalls, scenarios, and opportunities.

Participants will walk away with practical models to implement regarding coaching through burnout, increased awareness of one’s wisdom already in use with clients experiencing burnout, improved mindset around the opportunity burnout can present to go deeper with clients.
