Employee disengagement and burnout are critical issues in every organization – resulting in a major impact on productivity, employee retention, healthcare costs and morale. On average 90% of our workforce has admitted to feeling disempowered and feeling stuck at some point everyday. Research has shown the human brain naturally leans towards the negative, which can decrease motivation and performance. In addition to lost productivity, employees feel demoralized which negatively impacts the entire company and undermines company culture.
In this interactive session, Dr. Lilly shares her personal story of resilience, her framework for success, and she offers an uplifting perspective that inspires purpose and possibility in team members, who may be struggling with work-life imbalance, loss of meaning, and resistance to change.

However, it is important to recognize the value of embracing uncertainty and taking small steps outside of one’s comfort zone. Dr. Lilly offers mindfulness-based strategies for fostering authenticity and promoting continuous growth, specifically targeting employees who are feeling stuck and unmotivated.
