About the Webinar

Working in the nonprofit sector means you have a direct impact on people’s lives and on their communities. The work you do matters, and it can be incredibly rewarding – but with long hours, demanding workloads, and often strenuous budgetary concerns, it can be easy to find yourself and your team experiencing nonprofit burnout for the sake of the mission.

The truth is, you can’t give what you don’t have, whether that’s time, energy, or attention. And if the goal is to help others, you have to create the conditions for you and your team to bring your best selves to work so you can burn bright instead of burning out. One of the best ways to combat nonprofit burnout is to build resilience through regular recharge so that you can avoid burnout all together.

It’s critical for nonprofit leaders to cultivate personal and professional as well as individual and team practices that reenergize and foster resilience and ultimately help the people and communities you serve to do the same.

Watch this webinar to find out what nonprofit leaders should stop doing now – and start doing instead – to enhance your performance and keep nonprofit burnout at bay.
