If Healthcare is About Well Being, Why am I so Stressed Out?

Jerry BridgeJerry Bridge, Speaker, Trainer & Coach

The purpose of healthcare is to alleviate suffering and increase well being. And yet, vast numbers of clincians, administrators and medical staff are feeling over stressed, overwhelmed, over tired and burned out. Sick, distressed employees are prone to poor diet, lack of exercise, low energy and depression. Learning how to be ‘selfishly healthy’ - without sacrifice or guilt - will help you to be more relaxed, focused and effective in caring for others.
