If there’s one thing the pandemic has taught us, it’s that we can do virtually anything—virtually. Virtual communication is ubiquitous, cost-effective, and convenient, and it’s here to stay. Zoom in particular has gained enormous traction, although many of us admit we’re also Teams-tortured, ex-Webexed, over-Skyped, and, frankly, Burned Out.

We’ve all “Gone-to-(one-too-many)-Meetings,” and in short, we’ve become unwitting “Slack”-ers. Meetings are scheduled back-to-back—no need to walk down the hall or drive across town—and without breaks for necessities, like a ten-minute meditation or a quick cardio workout up and down the steps. Frankly, too much of a good thing—anything—can be bad. But the good news is that we're beginning to understand how virtual meetings affect us mentally, physically, and psychologically. Even better, we're devising strategies to help us wake up, focus, and beat the burnout.

Join Dr. Constance Staley for an amazing array of awesome antidotes that may help you minimize toxic burnout and maximize your own—and your organization's—effectiveness.
