How might we empower educators emotionally so they are equipped to handle not only universal stressors inherent in the teaching profession, but also those specific to individual temperament in order to uncover and strengthen the innate resiliency of teachers, leading to more reliable attraction and retention of talented teachers?

In this session, we will discuss the relationship between personality type and stress management, learning about burnout as an imbalance that can be both anticipated and mitigated with self-reflection. We will explore ways in which understanding personality types that differ from our own can benefit the mentor-teacher, teacher-student, teacher-parent, teacher-teacher, and teacher-administrator dynamics in order to bolster connection and combat the isolation related to burnout.

Key Takeaways:

  • Defining burnout and identifying its hallmarks in order to mitigate or prevent it
  • Increasing or maintaining job engagement through understanding of personality preferences and temperament
  • Learning practical tools for self-inquiry and support-system activation to apply to oneself in the relationship-rife field of education that will increase the job engagement of talented teachers, bolstering their choices to remain in this demanding and dignified profession

This event will take place at 12:00 PM Pacific Time/1:00 PM Mountain Time/2:00 PM Central Time/3:00 PM Eastern Time.
