Let’s challenge the status quo! We’re not workhorses, but individuals wanting to maximize our potential on all levels. Despite our work-obsessed culture, there are paths to professional success that don’t include burnout.
When I speak publicly, my goal is that participants return to their nonprofits as pioneers for personal change and organizational reform. Below are presentations that I have delivered to conferences, AFP chapters, and organizations.
How to Dial Down the Overwhelm
The “revolving-door” phenomenon of development directors is a vicious cycle. It’s time for a new paradigm – one that honors the wellbeing of employees. Learn the symptoms and causes of burnout, as well as seven ways to dial down your overwhelm.
The Impact of Social Media on Your Wellbeing – and How to Use it as a Force for Good
Let’s take an honest look at the impact of screens and social media on our wellbeing as fundraisers. You’ll learn the ugly truths of social media, how staying connected leads to burnout, and four ways to use social media as a force for good.
Understanding Your Values – Individuals and Teams
You’re at your best when you align your life with your core values. This sounds easy, but why is it so challenging? Learn the difference between core and acquired values, as well as what happens when our core values don’t match the values of our workplace.
“I left Danielle’s session with a new awareness of the burnout signs I missed when I left my previous fundraising job. I learned that I can be proactive in preventing burnout by applying my core values to my job and life. I feel relieved knowing I don’t have to burn out – I now have tangible tools to help me remain energized and fulfilled at work and home.”
President, AFP Wine Country Chapter
“Danielle gives us permission to talk about the topic of burnout, helping us understand why it happens and how to implement good habits that nurture and protect us from being stressed and overworked. The thought exercises she walks us through are excellent first steps to creating a life that is more balanced and fulfilling.”
