Within any PLC culture, teachers can feel overwhelmed by the relational expectations and chaotic noise that sometimes occur. Ours is a profession of “emotional labor,” and it is easy to experience compassion fatigue from the daily actions of our work life.

Timothy D. Kanold notes, “I have been exhausted. Off and on, I have lost contact with the joy of my work life. So it is for you. Sooner or later, the world of your professional life stretches you beyond your limits. But there are ways to regain your joy and cope with the stresses you face.”

By understanding their heartprint and soul story, attendees learn routines to overcome stress and maintain professional lives full of energy, joy, and balance. Dr. Kanold draws from his award-winning HEART! Fully Forming Your Professional Life as a Teacher and Leader (2018) and the companion SOUL! Fulfilling the Promise of Your Professional Life (2021) to provide research, insights, and reflective tools for this session.

Participants can expect to:
● Examine the H (happiness) and E (engagement) elements from HEART! and the S (searching) element from SOUL!
● Consider root causes and antidotes to emotional exhaustion and burnout.
● Learn to reflect upon and pursue a sustaining professional life that inspires students and colleagues each and every day.
