Break The Cycle of Burnout: Get on The Right Path Towards Resilience

An inspiring and soul-stirring call to action for healthcare professionals to own their power and begin to break the cycle of burnout. Teena fuses riveting stories with mindful and actionable advice to overcome the barriers and negative stigma of mental and emotional health issues in the workplace. Understanding burnout and how to get on the right path towards resilience is essential for healthcare professionals who are stuck in fatigue, frustration and overwhelm from trying to manage the demands of their job.

  • Identity the right things to focus on in order to reach your BIG goals with the most efficiency
  • Honor and welcome your talents so you can start to own what makes you unique and stop comparing yourself to others
  • Adopt a growth mindset so you can experience set backs as opportunities that allow you to cultivate resilience and grit
  • Cultivate more positive focused energy and passion to invest at work and with your family

First Change You: How to Improve Your Performance, Health and Happiness

All too often women get caught up in the search for more, more money, more stuff, more power and believe that this is going to bring them the fulfillment that they seek. Teena's coached many women who have held on tight to the belief that other people will value them more if they have all of these things, but this is a never ending road that keeps them from achieving what they actually want - to feel like they are truly worthy and that they belong.

  • Discover the key questions to ask yourself to break free from chronic overwhelm and create a clear plan for success
  • Explore what you resist so you can get past what blocks you from moving forward
  • Reclaim your energy by identifying what in your life is robbing you of your physical, mental and emotional energy
  • Gain more focused positive energy so you can increase your efficiency and productivity and reduce your tension and anxiety

"Teena, your speaking moved me to a place of awareness that shifted me towards focusing on my aspirations in a way that other speakers have not."
