Learn from Patricia Zinnecker as she shares how trusting in the flow of life helped reshape her leadership in a positive way. At only 29 years of age, Patricia has a master’s degree in psycho linguistics and international experience in entrepreneurship. Her new book, From Burnout Back to Life (available in German), illustrates Patricia’s perspective in life to recognize the right measure and tells the story of her pivotal burnout after working 80-100 hours a week for years and how she came back stronger and more resilient. Seasons Leadership Co-Founders Susan Ireland and Debbie Collard talk with Patricia about her shift in priorities, growing in maturity as a leader and helping others achieve balance in business and life. This episode is packed with tips to help listeners begin taking back their lives while still achieving their professional goals.
