This week, I am talking with Sabrina Runbeck about how healthcare professionals can increase productivity – without burning out. Sabrina is a cardiothoracic surgery PA with more than 10 years of experience in public health and neuroscience. After overcoming burnout in surgery, she became an International Peak Performance Keynote Speaker, Consultant, Podcaster, and Bestselling Author of Asian Women Who BossUp: Secrets From Women Who Are Forging Their Own Path and Thriving. She now helps healthcare business owners heighten and sustain their performance so they can do less and achieve more. That’s why she’s called the Queen of Performance and Productivity.

Highlights include:

7:56 – SR: “Why are we chasing these arbitrary degrees and accolades … what does it really truly mean for us to feel fulfilled and free?”

6:50 – SR: “The burnout second stage is blaming, is feeling cynical about nobody’s helping … but we actually allow that to happen to ourselves. We didn’t say ‘no’ to the people and the things that are truly robbing our precious time, energy, and sanity.”

14:40 – SR: “The second sabotaging tendency is controlling. You feel like, if I can just teach everyone the same way as I do it, if I have all these measurements and keep on track, people should get to X, Y, Z outcome.”

24:23 – SR: “How do we build positive quotient? And why do we build it – it’s because research has shown us, for every one negative experience or thought, it takes at least three positive ones to overcome. So that’s the 75 and 25 rule – and more positive ones that were in that zone, the higher performing.”
