Brushy Fork Annual Institute

Self-Care and Leadership: Tools for Balance

Early Bird Session Leader: Carla Baumann

People in leadership positions face significant challenges and have opportunities for amazing rewards. Achieving balance between our personal and professional lives is a practice that helps us live with integrity and authenticity, enhancing our effectiveness as leaders.

Kick-off the Annual Institute by joining this “early bird” session to learn about self-care tools designed to help attendees rebalance and recharge.  By focusing on “deep and simple”, participants will complete a health and wellness assessment, participate in self-awareness practices, and have fun exploring ways effective leaders have found to balance the demands and rewards of leadership.

This early bird is for you if you are feeling stressed and overwhelmed with your work at the expense of your physical, mental, and emotional health.

Leave this three-hour workshop with simple self-care tools tailored to address the imbalances that you are experiencing. Be inspired to pursue a renewed sense of health and wellness and commitment to self-care practices that enhance your leadership effectiveness.
