Beyond Burnout - Leveraging Language to Inspire Action
Recorded On: 04/13/2023
In this CEU Course, we explore the heavy and serious phenomena of burnout. When one is experiencing burnout, it's easy to look around and think that it is caused by circumstance. There's too much to do. People are difficult to work with. Et cetera. In this CEU, we will challenge that view by exploring how the behavior of language can contribute to and, when leveraged intentionally, attenuate the effects of burnout. Starting with a relatable and fun introduction to relational frame theory, we will look at the impact the behavior of language has, focusing specifically on temporal responding. Then, we will provide a behavioral definition of inspiration and use that to assess a segment of dialogue for its inspirationalness (and if you are thinking, "is that a word?" you are not alone). Finally, we provide a basic structure for beginning a conversation intended to inspire people and attenuate the effects of burnout.
3 Learning Objectives:
1) Identify how temporal framing relates to inspiration.
2) Complete a self-assessment of where speaking is or isn't inspiring.
3) Practice using presented concepts to begin an inspiring conversation.
