TIME OUT

TIME OUT IS BACK! 

You’ve waited all year to hear us say it again – it’s time for TIME OUT!

Put yourself in a ‘time out’ for the day. Not because you are bad. Because you are being TOO good. As leaders of social change, we are often doing so much for our organizations and for others that we feel we are too busy to learn. Too busy to look at the big picture. Too busy to spend time with others and look after ourselves. As leaders we need time to reflect, learn and connect.  So it’s time. Time for a TIME OUT!

Join us for TIME OUT 2017, where leaders of social change from Peel and beyond gather to recharge AND renew!

KEYNOTE SPEAKER

We are SO excited to announce that this year’s keynote and facilitator for the morning session at TIME OUT is Beth Kanter.  Beth is the author of Beth’s Blog: How Nonprofits Can Use Social Media, one of the longest running and most popular blogs for nonprofits.  Beth has over 30 years working in the nonprofit sector in technology, training, capacity building, evaluation, fundraising, and marketing.

MORNING SESSION

The Happy Healthy Nonprofit: Strategies for Impact without Burnout

The passion that nonprofit professionals feel for their work is a double-edged sword. On the one hand, that fervor helps them keep going in the face of difficult challenges, especially in the early stages of their careers. On the other hand, they can be so driven they don’t stop to refuel or smell the proverbial roses or even notice they are experiencing symptoms of burnout.  This interactive workshop is based on Beth Kanter’s new book, The Happy Healthy Nonprofit: Strategies for Impact without Burnout (http://bit.ly/happyhealthynpbook).

Learning Objectives:

  • Take a self-assessment to determine burnout symptoms and opportunities to create self-care habits
  • Discuss and share tips and methods for self-care activities that go beyond physical health
  • Learn about how to bring self-care into the workplace to create a culture of wellbeing
