We all can feel close to burnout or are so busy we don't take the time for self-reflection or evaluation. Add to the normal stresses of your demanding job the onslaught of challenges presented in 2020!  This two-series webinar is designed to help you head off a breakdown with an opportunity for a breakthrough. 

Author and speaker Brenda Viola will walk you through the ten keys to help reclaim your joy in work and life, as detailed in her book The Public Servants’ Survival Guide, the #1 new release on Amazon for government management in January 2020. The book focuses on unsung heroes, like you, who directly affect the quality of life in a community and impact people, literally, where they live. This is legacy work and while it may energize you, the demands on your time, energy, and attention can drain even the most resilient.

Best of all Brenda knows a bit about what it’s like to be in your shoes. She spent a decade working hand in glove with all aspects of government in her role as an award-winning Public Information Officer. Real-life examples will engage you and tangible takeaways will empower you to see with new eyes areas where you can make changes to renew your enthusiasm for your work - and your life.

More about Brenda ViolaBrenda Viola, 3CMA Webinar - Cropped - Flipped

Brenda Viola's work as an award-winning Public Information Officer for a first-ring suburb of Philadelphia birthed the inspiration for her Municipal Education courses and the launch of ME Seminars. She presents workshops and sessions to local government professionals in a variety of disciplines across the country and is a frequent on-line and in-person presenter.

A former news anchor and reporter, she shares that the most interest surrounding her resume is from her brief stint as a QVC Show Host! What is the "Why?" behind her current work? "Nothing makes me happier than to see the spark return in the eyes of a dedicated employee. I know the difference encouragement can make.  And I consider it a privilege to serve those who so selflessly serve our communities with excellence." 

For several years, an outlet for this desire to encourage others has been her inspirational blog or her 10,000+ member Facebook community (@BrendaViola722). She is a member of the National Speakers Association (NSA) and resides in Sarasota, FL.
