The Engagement Paradox:
Why too much Engagement can lead to Burnout?

May 15th, 2018
Time: 4:45 to 7:00 pm
Location: The Ranchmen’s Club
710 13 Ave SW, Calgary

Organizations are increasing their efforts to build a highly engaged workforce and promote work-life balance. However, engagement can come at a price. Recent studies have demonstrated that 1 in 5 highly engaged employee is at risk of burnout. In healthcare, up to 50% of clinicians are experiencing symptoms of burnout. We are at risk of losing not only a large workforce but negatively impacting our outcomes. Our speakers will try to answer the following questions:

  • How do we develop an approach to promote engagement without burning out our workforce in the process?
  • What can each of us do to help our team and leaders if they are showing signs of disengagement or burnout?
  • What leadership style can help promote psychologically safety in the workplace?
  • How do we establish and maintain psychological safety with a cognitively diverse group?
