In the final episode of the Intersectionality Series, Dr. Rochelle Johnson Benning and Patti talk about how interconnected each dimension of self care is with the resilience necessary to avoid burnout. They highlight everything from the often-overlooked social aspect of wellbeing to financial wellness and the validity of different types of coping skills.
We live in a time and place where self care is deemed a reward instead of necessity. Patti and Dr. Johnson Benning challenge that notion, diving deeper into what it means to truly take care of yourself to avoid burnout – a dangerous side effect of not acknowledging and working toward a healthier work/life endurance (as opposed to work/life balance).
As the newest member of the PeruasionPoint team, Dr. Johnson brings with her Work/Life and Well-Being coaching to our clients. Podcast listeners are invited to reach out and book a discovery session on how to work 1:1 with Dr. Johnson and/or join the waitlist for our upcoming Rising Leaders academy, scheduled to launch early 2021!
