Brilliance Rather than Burnout — Renewal, Resilience and Recognition

presented by Susie Vaughan, PCC 

During the past five years Susie has positively impacted many individuals, teams and organizations as a coach and a strategic learning partner. Prior to beginning her business, Susie was a successful public school administrator. Susie holds a Professional Coach Certification (PCC) through the International Coach Federation (ICF). In addition to coaching leaders Susie regularly collaborates with individuals, teams and organizations in strategic learning partnerships which move them toward the future they envision.

At her core, Susie is a learner, and she believes all effective leaders must be learners. Susie capitalized on the events of the past year and challenged herself to continue to learn and grow. She created webinars, published a monthly newsletter, joined a learning lab, and created a community for likeminded leaders. Her latest challenge was presenting at an international conference. These communities continue to funnel her energy to positive and impactful outcomes.

Program Description: 

Leaders are faced with choices every day. Will we choose brilliance over burnout? Many significant life changes have occurred in the recent past, such as the loss of loved ones, the normalcy of day-to-day life, and access to our school, work and social environments. Other losses may include the loss of jobs, economic security, certainty about the future and trust in our government. Like heavy blankets weighing down the human psyche these losses and stressors continue to create frustration, anxiety, and grief.

Even with these circumstances, leaders have a choice about their response. Our session seeks to celebrate the choices made by courageous leaders, coaches, and employees. It takes courage to choose brilliance over burnout again and again when faced with obstacles. Key elements of these choices are resilience, renewal, and recognition. Although the challenges have been great, there are also silver linings to acknowledge. For many of us, our community is a better place with the outpouring of kindness and compassion of individuals and organizations. For example, members of the North Texas Food Bank stepped in when the community need was great—and continue their great work today despite significant barriers.

A diamond is just a piece of charcoal that handled stress exceptionally well. Let’s take time to celebrate the brilliance of those we have the privilege of coaching and leading, using these success stories to fuel hope and resilience for the future.
