Art House Convergence
Annual Conference

Workshop #1
The Happy Healthy Arts Leader: Strategies for Impact without Burnout
The passion that people who work in the arts feel for their work is a double-edged sword. On the one hand, that fervor helps them keep going in the face of difficult challenges, especially in the early stages of their careers. On the other hand, they can be so driven they don’t stop to refuel or smell the proverbial roses or even notice they are experiencing symptoms of burnout. Based on their new book, The Happy Healthy Nonprofit: Strategies for Impact without Burnout (http://bit.ly/happyhealthynpbook), internationally acclaimed author and trainer Beth Kanter will present an interactive workshop where participants will:

  • Take a self-assessment to determine burnout symptoms and opportunities to create self-care habits
  • Share tips and methods for self-care activities that go beyond physical health
  • Share strategies for bringing a culture of well being into your nonprofit workplace
