The recent COVID pandemic has magnified the stressors that health care leaders typically deal with. While a certain level of stress is to be expected in a fast-paced and 24/7 industry like health care, chronic stress can lead to burnout and a multitude of negative personal, team, and organizational outcomes. This session will focus on the key behaviors that leaders can practice when leading themselves, their teams, and their organizations through the current pandemic and beyond. It focuses on the importance of mindfulness; short reflections; strategic breaks; realistic boundaries between work and personal lives; and healthy sleep habits. The leaders will leave the talk with practical and concrete take-home behaviors that will enable them to manage the extreme demands on their time while building their own agility and resilience, as well as the resilience of their teams and organizations.
