Compassion Fatigue: 10 Things You Must Know to Maintain Your Health and Sanity

January 15, 2015 12-1 PM CST

In health care we are entrusted with the privilege of caring for patients. This means we are witness to suffering on a daily basis. To engage in this work, we need a sense of radical resilience to maintain a healthy sense of compassion. Our ability to connect with another’s suffering as if it is our own, is a true expression of empathy. This experience is a normal part of who we are as caregivers, and when we are able to put this into perspective by not allowing our heavy heart to become empty, we are truly living our calling. It is when we no longer have the capacity to move in and out of this heaviness and we instead allow it to consume us that we move into the beginning stages of compassion fatigue. Compounded by the increasing demands and changes in health care, we are bombarded with changing roles, expectations, and a sense we cannot possibly meet the patients’ needs and our own at the same time.

Join Traci Hanlon in this one hour webinar where she will introduce you to the 10 most important practices you and your teams can master to keep your heart full and build a sense of radical resiliency.

Mindful Leadership: Empowering Your Teams 

January 30, 2015 12-1 PM CST

Mindfulness has become the new buzzword of the health care industry and for good reason. Research is now showing physiological and psychological improvements in how individuals who engage in mindfulness on a regular basis can not only improve their overall sense of well-being, but can improve their performance in everything from personal relationships to clinical decision making at work. But what is mindfulness exactly? And how is it possible to translate mindful practices that traditionally have belonged to yogi masters and monks to laymen in the health care industry?

Join Traci Hanlon as she shares new research on mindfulness in the workplace and how mindful practices, when embraced by transformational leaders, can move teams and organizations to a whole new level of capacity and possibility.
