Combat Burnout and the Unique Leadership Challenges Faced by Women Through Practical and Action-Oriented Solutions

Through five 90-minute synchronous sessions, followed by a sixth “check-in” session to review results of changes made, this online career coaching workshop will help participants identify and combat the challenges that women face in their personal and professional lives that are threatening their health, well-being, relationships, effectiveness as leaders, and overall life satisfaction. This program is designed to give you space and support to reflect on those challenges, find new ways of addressing them, and create a path forward that goes beyond typical “self-care tips” and builds deeper reserves of resilience.
