Free ASA Webinar Today—Preventing Burnout

Well beyond exhaustion, never-ending to-do lists, and feeling overwhelmed, burnout threatens leaders and companies like nothing else. In the interactive webinar “Burning Bright, Burning Out,” the presenter will explore the phenomenon of burnout, its causes and risks, and how it affects high performers. Then she’ll share what leaders at all levels can do to recognize, relieve, and prevent it—in both themselves and their teams. The webinar takes place today, 2–3 p.m. Eastern time.

All ASA webinars are free for ASA members, and most qualify for continuing education hours toward ASA certification renewal. To learn more and to register, visit
