American Public Health Association
800 I Street, NW
First Floor Conference Room
In the public health and health care world, the conversation about professional wellness and burnout often focuses on the (very real) issues affecting clinical providers. But policy, advocacy, and government relations work carries its own unique stresses, especially in such a fast-moving and unpredictable political climate.
John Sawyer, formerly Director of Federal Affairs at the National Association of Community health Centers now runs Open Way Coaching, a life and leadership coaching practice where he works with mission-driven professionals around wellness, balance, and mindful career development.
In an interactive presentation and discussion, John will cover:
The unique obstacles facing policy and advocacy professionals as they try to work smarter and healthier in today's environment;
Practical strategies for approaching our work in a more fulfilling and joyful way; and
The basics of professional coaching--what it means, how it works, and the value it can deliver.
This will be an informative and thought-provoking session, useful for the novice and the veteran alike.
