Productivity in the Face of Burnout

Many research articles mention burnout as a work condition. What if it stems from more than long hours on the job? During this presentation, you will learn how emotions can intensify workload and increase a person’s likelihood of burning out. You will also hear research-proven and anecdotal indications that will allow you to predict a burnout state before it happens, and tips to come back stronger from burnout. Be productive without repeating the exhausting history!

This virtual meeting will be held as a Zoom webinar with automatic live captioning available. Attendees will have the opportunity to submit questions for the presenter and to use text chat to interact with each other.

    Kara Stevens is a disabled veteran who writes dark psychological fantasies to heal from C-PTSD and learn more about herself. After receiving her MS in sports and health sciences, she switched her attention to writing. Her self-published novel, The Scarring of the Roshanra, became the first stepping-stone to her writing career. After she graduated with her AFA in creative writing, her teachers, husband, and writing friends encouraged her to edit for others. She draws on her love of reading, her attention to detail, and empathic compassion to give clients the best and kindest feedback she can.

    When not writing and editing, she continues to evolve, learning to relax with her husband and emotional support animals and appreciating the calm before, during, and after the storm.
