Keeping Sane® in a Leadership Role
Deb uses four elements of mental health as the basis for some balance and harmony in your life, your leadership role and yourself.
How do you know you are Keeping Sane when everyone wants a piece of you, everyone is expecting you to excel and you are demanding mastery of leadership yourself? How do you keep all the balls in the air and what happens if you drop them? After 25 years of mental unwellness, Deb wants to share the lessons she has learned and also of her years of recovery, about the concept of Keeping Sane and why the words are so important that she bought the trademark to them! Sit back, listen and ponder.
