Maya Angelou once said: “One must learn to care for oneself first, so that one can then dare to care for someone else.” Being a high performer is no easy feat and we seldom discuss the importance of avoiding burnout.

Happy employees have been proven to outperform the competition by as much as 202 percent.
People who know how to cultivate positive emotion tap into an endless well of psychological capital – hope, optimism, confidence, resilience, and belief – that has the power to make you more successful even in tough times. Attend and learn the real, tangible and actionable steps to building “A Happier YOU.”
