Have you ever been going through a tough personal time, and right then, your team gets assigned the highest priority project in the company?

One of those projects so big, so important, and with urgent expectations that may burn out your whole team in a sprint, if you are not careful.

I did, and I was concerned not only about being able to pull this off but also about my team’s mental health and my own. Burnout takes months to recover from. My goal and whole purpose became to see everyone through this exhausted, but not burned out. 

In this talk, I’ll share my experience with you, and walk you through the strategies we implemented to achieve this, at team and personal levels, and the importance of practicing self-compassion. You should walk away with some new ideas and an understanding of how caring about the people in your team can be key to delivering projects successfully.
