Small Changes, Huge Impact: Converting Your Current Healthcare Job
When Monday mornings are difficult and you feel like you are living for the weekend, it can feel like you need to change your job. This can be true if the culture is toxic or the position is a bad fit, but in the absence of those things it may be worth it to convert your current circumstance. Creating flexibility, changing your role, or negotiating a raise can all improve your current circumstance without needing to change jobs. Today, co-founder of Professional Rebellion, Phil Plisky, PT, DSc, OCS, ATC, CSCS, is back and is joined by his other co-founder, Jenna Gourley, PT, DPT, SCS, to talk about how you can convert your current job and design your ideal career.
Burnout in Healthcare: Do we need to change jobs or change careers?
What happens when burnout makes you want to leave the profession? It is not uncommon to find yourself in the position where you no longer want to do patient care 9-5, you feel you aren't compensated enough, or you no longer feel excited to go into work. Yet that doesn't mean you have to find a new field. Today, Phil Plisky talks about how you can convert your current job, change jobs, or create your own path and as a result design your ideal career.
All good things!
I will be attending this program in May and I am really looking forward to practicing mindfulness before class! I am a huge advocate for mindfulness and have experienced its benefits. This episode was super informative! :)

Fantastic Healthcare Education Podcast
This podcast covers some great topics. While all topics aren't relevant to everyone, there is something for everyone. I have a daughter who was born with torticollis and had flat head syndrome (Episode 2). I believe this type of information is important for all parents to hear because I had never heard of this until it was too late, so I had no idea how to help my daughter. My daughter suffered through a lot of pain, and if I had known about this before she was born I possibly could have helped prevent it.
