Combating burnout: Lightning talks to inspire new ways of working

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Much of small newsroom burnout starts with ineffective or inefficient operations and not rightsizing your work based on your capacity. Hear from publishers and experts on specific solutions or frameworks they've implemented to prevent from being overworked or burnt out.
Session audience and takeaways:
  • Anyone who has experienced or feels like they’re closing to experiencing burnout; anyone who is working with colleagues or a team that always seems perpetually burned out; anyone who is interested in how to proactively prevent burnout on their team
  • Specific frameworks or ideas that these publishers or experts have implemented that can be adapted by attendees in their newsrooms or in their work
