Escape the Type A Trap: Essential Steps to Beat Burnout and Sustain Peak Performance

Figure it Out Without Burning Out: How to Get Unstuck, Discover a New Path and Find Your Way in Life and Business
The pandemic forced us to reevaluate our lives from every angle. While millions have left the workforce in the Great Resignation, it might better be called the Great Reinvention, because it’s the perfect time to reinvent yourself, reevaluate your priorities and reignite the flame that’s been buried inside you. But where do you start?

Based on personal experiences of spotting a seemingly unattainable desired outcome and conquering it anyway, and dozens of interviews with some of the world’s highest achievers who have done the same, Erin reveals a step-by-step approach to seizing the opportunities you crave without burning out along the way. If you want to supercharge your audience, help individuals and teams become more confident and self-reliant, even when facing challenges or starting over, build tenacity, resilience and courage, Erin’s message will do just that..

Create Remote Rockstars: Reengage, Reconnect and Reinvigorate Your Burnt-Out Remote Workforce
Remote and hybrid work is here to stay. But keeping remote teams happy and productive has created a new paradigm. Leaders are struggling to manage and measure performance, but more importantly, engage and create happy employees while maintaining a company culture that now only feels like an illusion.
In this practical, tactical session, Erin lays out the exact five-step process she used as the head of marketing for the nation’s largest healthcare staffing company to keep nearly fifty thousand clinicians and three thousand corporate employees engaged and connected during the pandemic, all while the company grew by 9x.
If you want a new model to reinvigorate your remote workforce, create a thriving community and breathe life into a tired and overwhelmed group, Erin’s message will do that and more.

Scale Your Business and Thrive Without Burning Out
Life as an entrepreneur or in a hyper-growth company is fast-paced and exhilarating, but it can also mean 24/7 hustle and grind. While working harder can lead to short term success, it can also destroy us physically and mentally along the way if we aren’t careful.

Drawing on her 20+ year career as a marketer for global brands like MTV, Apple, Nike, Coke and Amex; her role as the head of marketing for the nation’s largest healthcare staffing company which she helped grow 9x in two years; and interviews with dozens of leading entrepreneurs, Erin shares her three-part strategy for preventing and overcoming burnout while achieving explosive growth, renewed motivation and engaged teams.

In her signature entertaining, straight-forward style, audiences gain key mindset shifts and practical tools that can be put to use immediately. They leave feeling motivated and excited about not only their work, but their lives.
