Signature Workshop Event

“Burnout is defined in two ways: “A state of physical, emotional, and mental exhaustion caused by long-term involvement in emotionally demanding situations.” – Ayala Pines and Elliot Aronson.

“A state of fatigue or frustration brought about by devotion to a cause, way of life, or relationship that failed to produce the expected reward.” – Herbert J. Freudenberger.

Between them, these definitions embrace the essence of burnout, with the first stressing the part that exhaustion plays in it and the second focusing on the sense of disillusionment at its core. In this interactive webinar, Award Winning Leadership Coach & TEDx Speaker Kelly Meerbott will help you identify your symptoms and take action to mitigate the damaging effects burnout can have on your personal and professional life.

Meet our Speaker – Kelly Meerbott

Kelly Meerbott is a respected thought leader, author, facilitator, TEDx speaker, and leadership coach to successful leaders. Early in her corporate career, Kelly found her calling to coaching and training while working for a Fortune 500 company.

Recognizing her natural aptitude for mentoring and educating others, she was given roles where she could have the most significant impact coaching her peers and supervisors. Her influence was felt across the organization, as company morale improved, politics disintegrated, and productivity soared. Revenues increased dramatically as formerly disgruntled clients and employees were converted to corporate supporters and advocates. In 2009, at the height of the recession, Ms.

Meerbott found herself caught up in a round of 30,000 layoffs — a defining moment in her career. As Kelly explored what was next, she hired a coach who subsequently changed her life. The support and guidance of a personal coach helped her realize her passion for helping others and desire to make it a career. More importantly, she recognized how impactful and life-changing a great coach can be. This is what inspires and motivates Kelly to share her talents and to make a difference in the world.

Specializing in senior executives, members of the C-suite, and high-ranking officers in the US military, Kelly discovered that no matter how experienced all humans are in running their lives and businesses, everyone still has obstacles (real or perceived) that prevent them from fully executing their vision. Ms. Meerbott expertly guides her clients through a unique, personalized change management process. Her customized approach has demonstrated measurable results; improving employee satisfaction and productivity, streamlining communications processes and neutralizing company politics, all while maintaining a focus on increasing profitability.
