As a result of the pandemic, doctors have been asked to rapidly adapt to the current changing requirements of patient needs, clinical practice changes, and updated business arrangements. In times of extreme change and uncertainty, our adrenaline rises, often resulting in fatigue, physical symptoms, mental fogginess and overwhelm. For some of us, the strategies we use to keep our adrenaline in the optimal zone are relegated to the bottom of the ‘to do’ list.
This session will focus not on ‘what’, but ‘how’ - practical strategies to optimally utilise your default management style or adapt your style to help you develop and keep good habits, and reduce the risk of burnout. Understanding the default responses of other people’s styles can reduce conflict and improve both professional and personal interactions.
