How to Extinguish Burnout in the "New Normal" World @ Virtual

Join us for a fast-paced discussion of a difficult topic – Burnout.  Who hasn’t suffered at one time or another from exhaustion, cynicism, and a lack of effectiveness? Elegantly defined as the depletion of personal agency – the apparatus driving our ability to initiate and execute actions – burnout effectively wipes out our ability to be effective, much less engaged. And the cost of burnout is astronomical in all its forms and phases, not to mention the profound and lasting effects it has on employees and workplace cultures.

This program will take a deep dive into the signs, sources and solutions of burnout   For the book Extinguish Burnout. Rob and Terri Bogue did the research. They gathered knowledge from numerous disciplines, and put it all together in a way that anyone can understand. No matter your role, you can identify the signs of burnout, take steps to build your resilience to burnout, and help yourself and others recover from burnout.

Office 365 End User Adoption Workshop: A Deep Dive into Building a Successful End User Adoption Campaign @ Microsoft 365 Collaboration Conference
Dec 10 @ 9:00 am – 4:00 pm
Office 365 End User Adoption Workshop: A Deep Dive into Building a Successful End User Adoption Campaign @ Microsoft 365 Collaboration Conference

We all want to have our teams be more productive inside our business applications – simply turning on an application and letting employees “figure it out” leaves many people feeling frustrated, and they will go back to using the things they know well.

Do you currently have an adoption plan, a process, a campaign to roll out new applications and introduce new team members to what you already have? If so, is it working well? Either way, there is always room for improvement and different perspectives. Adoption campaigns should always be focused on the value that employees will get from the tools.

This session showcases a tried and true end-user adoption method and a detailed dive into building an Office 365 End User Adoption Campaign inside your Microsoft Teams, Microsoft Planner, and OneNote in your tenant with proven strategies for success.

Heather, Rob, and Karuana are Office 365 and adoption experts with a variety of expertise across IT, organizational change management, and marketing. This is a hands-on workshop where you will walk away with a campaign plan template set up in your tenant (if you so choose).

Attendees can also follow the steps at a later time. Heather will share stories, examples, and best practices so you can use what you learn in the workshop over and over again inside your business. These strategies can be applied when new Office 365 Applications or any applications are launched and for when you need to train your new hires.

In this workshop, you will take away:
• A step by step end-user adoption schedule built out inside your Microsoft Teams, Microsoft Planner, and OneNote.
• Real-world examples for each item in the plan.
• A communication plan with templates you can use for your end-user campaign.
• Practical tips and tricks that you can adapt and re-use.

Bring your laptop if you would like to build or take notes as we go.

Extinguish Burnout: Practical Guide for Prevention and Recovery @ APIC IN Spring Conference 2022
Mar 25 @ 2:15 pm – 3:45 pm
Extinguish Burnout: Practical Guide for Prevention and Recovery @ APIC IN Spring Conference 2022

Everyone in healthcare is experiencing increased demands on their time, resources, and energy; this, combined with systems that are not designed to support the expanding daily work, has resulted in increased rates of burnout. Burnout among healthcare professionals is reaching epidemic proportions, with over 50% of physicians and 30% of nurses reporting signs of burnout. While the evidence demonstrates that burnout is becoming a norm in healthcare, it is rarely discussed among these professionals. Too often, burnout is considered a personal problem affecting only the person experiencing burnout; however, in healthcare, burnout also affects the entire healthcare system. Burnout has significant impact in healthcare, including lower-quality patient care, reduced patient and staff safety and patient satisfaction, and increased staff turnover. It has also been demonstrated that there is a statistically significant correlation between nurse burnout and increased healthcare-associated infection rates. While burnout affects all aspects of healthcare, it is frequently perceived as someone else’s problem. Individuals feel like they cannot cope with the demands of their life and be effective at their work. Too often, they don’t want to ask for help, because they don’t want anyone to know they are experiencing burnout. They worry that they may not be appreciated or, even worse, thought of as incompetent if anyone realizes that they are experiencing burnout. In this session, we’ll review the classic factors leading to burnout and distill them into a model of burnout focused on perceived personal efficacy and personal agency. Pulling research and writings from many disciplines, you’ll learn how to think about burnout in a way that enables you to prevent it – or recover from it – for yourself or the staff you support.

This event has been rescheduled from its original date of September 24, 2021. Additional information coming soon!
