Let's Talk Burnout!
My name is Cait and I love sharing empowering, relatable stories about Burnout (with laugh-out-loud funny REAL LIFE examples) that inspire your employees/audience to take action! From corporate workshops, to keynotes, to podcast appearances, I'm ready to serve up a dose of burnout recovery for you and your team!

KEYNOTE - Resentment Is Your Superpower
Do you want 5% more energy by the end of the hour? This workshop will show you how to get it. In a world obsessed with positive thinking, we've left behind some of our most powerful resources and lost connection with how to use them. Resentment is Your Superpower allows participants to gain an entirely new understanding of 'negative' emotions, energy management, boundaries, and what getting your spark back really entails. It is empowering, inspiring, and Cait’s most requested workshop. This one promises laughter and fun!

🦸 Use resentment as a guide for boundary building
🦸 Ask the right questions to transform resentment
🦸 Communicate your boundaries and emotions safely

This talk is great for women's leadership groups and ERG's for women who are tired of being told to be more grateful, more positive, and more soft. Handouts available for review.

KEYNOTE / LAB: Top Down Bottom Up Solutions for Burnout
The demand on workers and leaders alike through the past 3 years has caused burnout rates to skyrocket. High levels of burnout lead to communication issues, high employee turnover, high level of health related absence from work, and lack of productivity. This keynote addresses what can be done at the leadership level as well as the individual level to decrease burnout risk and increase burnout recovery. Top Down and Bottom Up, the best changes happen together.

🍳 Understand organizational risk factors for burnout and their solutions
🍳 Understand personal risk factors for burnout and their solutions
🍳 Know how to find the red flag signs and symptoms in employees

Performed as a both a lab (90 minute) or a keynote (60 minute).

This is a great keynote or lab for companies who want to kickstart employee well being after HR surveys dictating need. It is also great for HR conferences. Handouts available for review.

KEYNOTE - Boundaries Make You More Generous
Can you build boundaries using the acronym B.R.A.T and be more generous at the same time?

At the end of this workshop, you'll be able to use B.R.A.T. to create clear, kind, and concise boundaries that are designed to help empower other people into action and save YOU precious energy. You will come away with a deeper understanding of what how intrapersonal boundaries are represented on a scale researchers call the Integration Segmentation continuum and a set of tools that will allow you to create both internal and external boundaries while still embracing generosity and a community spirit!

🤬 Utilize a set of rules that make boundary building feel safer
🤬 Implement the B.R.A.T. tool for stating boundaries that are clear, kind, and concise
🤬 Feel more empowered to create boundaries without guilt

This is best for female leadership retreats and HR conferences. Handouts available.
