Hear senior FranklinCovey consultant, Jean White, present the most critical leadership skills needed to fill a new management role in the midst of 'The Great Resignation'.

Recent studies have shown that 55% of faculty and staff at higher education institutions have seriously considered changing careers or retiring early. They’re growing tired, stressed, and emotionally drained due to overwork and a lack of work-life balance.

Levels of stress, anger, and fatigue that faculty and staff experienced in 2019 vs. 2020 more than doubled:

Stress in 2019 – 32% | Stress in 2020 – 69%
Anger in 2019 – 12% | Anger in 2020 – 35%
Fatigue in 2019 – 32% | Fatigue in 2020 – 68%
