There’s no denying that times are tough in animal sheltering and management, and might be about to get tougher. Our teams are tired, frustrated, and can’t see a light at the end of the tunnel. Attrition rates are high, burnout rates are worrying, and mental health is suffering.
There is no silver bullet for these issues; they’re big, wicked problems that take a whole industry to start improving. BUT there are things are can do to support ourselves.
This session is about practical ways to improve your work/life balance, establish and hold boundaries, and find peace with not being able to save everyone. We also talk about the choices we make, about the things we can control, the decisions that are up to us, and the way that we see and perceive the world.
It’s delivered by someone who genuinely has been where you are, who understands the job, and gets it. There’s no corporate buzzwords and generic self-help advice here, just real scenarios and practical advice.
