Educators are regularly reported as belonging to the one of the most stressful occupations. The effects of stress are leading to low teacher retention rates and a high prevalence of burnout. There has to be a better way! How can teachers set about reducing their feelings of burnout and improve motivation and work engagement?
At our recent Agora event, Dr Maureen Miner Bridges used her Australian-based research, that examined well-being among faith-based workers, to address these crucial questions.
Dr Miner Bridges explored how faith-based practices influence work engagement, motivation and help us to apply practices that lead to improved well-being. She urged educators to improve their practice in self-care, motivation and, most importantly, our reliance on God and the use of 'spiritual resources'.
