Entrepreneurial burnout, Velina Getova (EN) | Burnout triumphants

Velina worked for several startups and young organizations across the UK and Bulgaria. During that time she assumed various roles of a performance coach, consultant, team psychologist, and ultimately Chief of People and Operations. As the saying goes - “The shoemaker always wears the worst shoes” - while Velina was catering to the team’s performance and wellbeing, she completely neglected her very own. From there she had a turbulent rollercoaster down the ‘burnout road’, which she will share with us on the upcoming livestream. Nowadays Velina works as an Organizational Psychologist and coach, supporting thousands of CEOs, managers, and entire teams. This experience, too, will make up for an even more insightful Burnout Talk with multiple engaging insights across the entire burnout spectrum. - How do highly 'corporate' environments differ from 'start-up' ones? - How did Veli recover from her 'her rough patch' she shares about? - When should people turn to prescribed medication?
