Why this webinar?

How can we recognize the early signs of a burnout? 
Why do we stagnate for long periods, even though we are hard-workers and individuals with high potential? 
What are the factors that make us more vulnerable and susceptible to an anxiety disorder or a burnout? 
How can we best protect ourselves from that possibility? 
How do we stop self-sabotage? 
What shall we do when we are in the midst of a burnout and increase the chances of recovering faster?
