Kevin Benz Webinar – Timely Tips and Coaching for Real World Journalism, Session 1 of 3
January 28 @ 10:30 am
Session 1: Beating Burnout: Managing mental health in crisis
NBA members are encouraged to join this three-part series of “Timely Tips and Coaching for Real World Journalism” webinars with highly acclaimed industry trainer Kevin Benz. All three webinars will begin at 10:30am Central time and will be archived for later viewing.
In this first session, we discuss how to identify the symptoms of burnout (which is a real mental health issue brought on by stress and isolation – sound familiar?), how to differentiate it from simple exhaustion and then how to avoid it. This is aimed both at news managers trying to take care of their team (and themselves) as well as individual staff trying to cope day-to-day.
These webinars are being presented in partnership with the state broadcasters associations of Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota and Wyoming. For more details and webinar access, contact Jim Timm at email@example.com.
