Overview

 

How to Overcome Being Overworked and Overwhelmed

With everything you’re trying to accomplish in the week — clearing out an overflowing inbox, juggling a calendar that’s racked and stacked, deadlines, bosses, employees, customers, family commitments, personal care, running your household, the list goes on — it’s no wonder you feel overwhelmed.

Because of the demands of a do-more-with-less environment and a hyper-connected way of life, more and more leaders find themselves in a chronic state of fight or flight.  The effects of that can be devastating — for your effectiveness at work and personal relationships — as well as your overall health, well-being, and satisfaction with life.

So, what's the alternative?

Author and executive coach Scott Eblin offers one in this vital AMA webcast, based on the research behind his new, best-selling book, Overworked and Overwhelmed: The Mindfulness Alternative.

What You Will Learn

 

Eblin has found that you don't have to meditate like a monk to benefit from what science is clearly concluding:  mindfulness works. In this free webinar, you'll learn:

  • What happens when you're overworked and overwhelmed
  • How simple, easy-to-do mindful routines can help you feel less stress and show up at your best
  • How to create a Life GPS® that will guide you in showing up at your best and creating the outcomes you want at work, at home, and in your community

While attending this program is FREE, reservations are required.
