From the emotional labour we provide to the community to the responsibilities and stress we shoulder as leaders, our work can be exhausting. Library staff need strategies to support mental and emotional wellbeing, physical stamina, empathy and positivity. This interactive session will showcase Markham Public Library’s Staff Wellness Strategy, and share with participants easy to implement opportunities to reduce burnout and manage stress. Participants will be guided through the process of developing their personal self-care plan that can be implemented in their own organizations.
