Overcoming Overwhelm at Work

March 18, 2023 

Grow Your Career Conference Morning Concurrent Session

UCalgary, Downtown Campus (in-person)

“Overwhelm” is becoming a major cause of stress, burnout and anxiety. The relentless pace of life and the always-on nature of the digital world has dropped our attention span down to just a few seconds. Our aspirations and expectations are higher than ever, we are constantly ping-ed and ding-ed, and we have access to endless information 24/7.

If you’re feeling overwhelmed, you are not alone. A scattered mind negatively affects relationships, mental health, physical health and professional success.  

In this workshop, we will explore practical tools for dismantling stress from the inside out, reducing overwhelm and becoming focused so you can reclaim your ability to spend time on the things that matter most.

Please note that this session is part of the 2023 Grow Your Career Conference full in-person conference day on March 18.
