The Secret Weapon You Can't Afford to Waste

Friday, September 20
9:00–9:45 AM

You're a creative. And you lead other creatives.  You're the one with elegantly executable ideas spilling out of your ears, right? And you're brilliant on a tight schedule, meeting deadlines with grace and ease. It is your job to keep a bunch of other people happy—clients, team members, bosses…those other creatives. What's that, you'd like to have a personal life?

I'm guessing you’ve heard of burnout. It's all over the HuffPost Twitter feed. Sounds like you might be at risk given all the demands on your time and your brain. Despite being common, burnout is much more than a self-help fad. The way that burnout can affect your brain has major implications for your creativity, productivity, relationships and overall physical and mental health.

But don't worry…you aren't doomed to feeling fried, jaded and apathetic. Forty years of research has helped to clarify some key burnout prevention strategies. In this keynote presentation, Dr. Walling will give you ideas and strategies to help you keep your creative edge, professional cool and personal sanity.
