Speaker: Kat Morgan – Do you check email at breakfast? Eat at your desk? Do you stay late, work long hours, take work home? Had a conference call during a vacation? Missed family or social events for work? Do you work when you’re sick? These rampant habits lead to burn out and the costs of this way is too high.

You’ll learn about why these practices work and which ones work best for you. You’ll leave with a mini-action plan you can implement on your way home.
