Establishing and implementing practices that encourage a more balanced relationship with work are key to building a sustainable career and leading happy teams.

Hilary covers the following:
- How to identify individual needs and values
- Strategies to improve current practices with a compassion-centric mentality
- How to approach conversations about boundaries with other team members
- Off you up a new catchphrase or two
