Best Moments

“I think energy is something that we really need to pay attention to, because burnout causes long-term problems, and people think they can keep on going.”

“So prevention is definitely key. We want to keep people energised, out of their comfort zone so they don’t get bored. Without strain, that can tip into overwhelm.”

“Coaching is a key management skill – not just one size fits all. There are very many different ways in which you can act as a coach.”
