Joyful Leadership Institute - Preventing Burnout and Cultivating Joyful Leadership: A Personal and Professional Approach

 Are you looking to reclaim your time, enhance your well-being, and become a more effective leader? The Joyful Leadership Institute offers a comprehensive program designed to prevent and resolve burnout while fostering a sustainable and fulfilling career and life. Our approach is personalized to your individual and organizational needs, ensuring that you are equipped with the tools and strategies to thrive personally and professionally.

This transformative course is based on the "Rise Above Burnout Blueprint" developed by Lisa Imel, Founder and CEO of EdSolutions Consulting Group, who drew from her own experience as a school leader who battled burnout. Through a combination of virtual training, interactive resources, and ongoing support, participants will embark on a journey of self-discovery and growth, ultimately deterring burnout and chronic stress so they can lead more effectively. In person professional development is offered for schools and districts. Additionally, in person retreats are offered throughout the year.
