Testimonials

 

Janice’s passion and energy brought the room to life, especially for an afternoon keynote that often has to fight the post-meal drag.

She had a room of HR, Benefits, and Wellness professionals out of their chairs to dance!

She took time to do pre-conference interviews, which not only brought a personal touch, but also made attendees feel even more confident that Janice understood their organization’s experiences, challenges and barriers. 

Janice shares personal experiences in a variety of industries, both good and bad, that empowers listeners to put into practice the tangible tips for banishing burnout personally, as well as for supporting teams as a leader within an organization.

At Janice’s opening keynote at the MMANC conference, her Banish Burnout presentation was not only informative but also exceptionally engaging. Her ability to connect with the audience through relatable examples and interactive elements left an impact. The session was both educational and inspiring, making it a highlight of the conference.

I had the pleasure of meeting Janice the evening before the conference. Her discussions and observations about the public sector and local government were insightful.

I wholeheartedly recommend Janice as a speaker and thought leader. Her expertise in banishing burnout is not only relevant but essential in today’s fast-paced world. She is a valuable contributor to any event or organization. I hope to work with her in future collaborations. Thank you, Janice!

Janice provided our DiverseABILITY ERG a one-hour virtual seminar titled: Banish Burnout: Move from Stress to Success.

Janice was great with communication before the actual session to ensure alignment and tone.

The seminar, which was open to the entire company, was very well-received by everyone with excellent feedback.

Janice then graciously followed up with additional resources for our participants.

She was very animated (difficult in a zoom meeting), relatable and interactive with our group – giving specific tips that could be used to stop/reduce stress.

Would highly recommend Janice for your presentations!

Janice came to our company’s Women Leaders meeting and gave an engaging, fun, and meaningful presentation about managing burnout both for ourselves, and our teams.

I especially appreciated the insight she provided on ways to set healthy boundaries in a professional way.

It was a day well spent.

We really enjoyed Janice as she led a teambuilding session with our entire staff.

Her concepts on how to banish burnout were insightful and practical.

What really resonated with me was her quote, “Emotional intelligence is more important than technical skill in the workforce today.”

Janice’s session has made a difference in how our team interacts with each other and how we manage burnout.

Kathleen Hill, ITIL, PMP

Associate Solution Specialist, Stratascale, PMI Suncoast Florida

Janice was simply amazing. As I’m sitting here over lunch, I suddenly feel full. Fullfrom a sense of accomplishment. I’ve been stretched these last few months since joining the Board and have gone through many emotions…fear of dropping the ball, of taking on too much, of shooting too high, of rejection, and more.

This 2023, I resolved to own all these emotions…good or bad because my one aim is GROWTH…personally and professionally.

To anyone looking for an inspirational speaker, look into Janice! You’ll be glad you did.

Florence Rene

VP Publicity, PMI Central Illinois

Thank you, Janice. You really hit your points home.

With the integration of our personal and professional lives, there is a crossover of time. We are more over-committed and overburdened than ever before.

Understanding how to control our thinking and reactions to stress is vitally important to avoiding burnout. 

The lessons in Janice Litvin’s Banish Burnout program provide the tools and guidance needed to stay ahead.

Tamra Gaines

Vice President, Experiences, Cornerstone League

Wow! Janice did a virtual program for our HR Community and knocked it out of the park!

Her topic of Banishing Burnout was on point for our HR audience of 45 live attendees who spent the last 2 years dealing with Covid and related events.

Best of all, the program was engaging with a balance of facts, tools and participation. The group raved and all downloaded her toolkit immediately for more information.

Thanks Janice!

Janice delivered a powerful presentation about “Banishing Burnout” at the CalSAE Elevate Annual Conference in April 2022.

It was Educational, Entertaining, and very Interactive. Janice shared how she experienced burnout and learned how to overcome it using some memorable techniques.

She saved the best for last by having everyone participate in a Zumba-style dance to music, where we moved and punched while shouting out the key takeaways of her session.

I had the great pleasure of attending one of Janice’s workshops at HR Houston, and I am so grateful for her. The content she provided was relevant and greatly needed. The energy and passion she brings to this topic is amazing.

My biggest take away from her workshop was how important self-care is to us and those around us.

I highly recommend you attend her Banish Burnout workshops. You will learn how to identify signs of burnout for yourself and team and how best to address it.

Thank you Janice for the work you do and I am so happy we had an opportunity to meet.

She was an inspirational speaker who provided great tools and recommendations on how professionals can manage their stress as well as develop ways to help their team members.

 

Marie Josephitis

Asst. Director - Career Advancement Center, Lake Forest College (Northern Illinois SHRM)

Many of the topics you touched were so apropos to my life, but I’m sure you’re not surprised by that.

One thing you said will stay with me forever. When you mentioned how you have your degree in Mathematics from U of Texas, but still question your intelligence. I have my Chemistry degree from Rutgers and I am constantly questioning if I am smart. It’s imposter syndrome but the way you said what you said made me kind of snap out of it.

Thank you for saying that. I can’t wait to read your book.

Thanks again for the time and expertise, Janice!

Meredith Nethercutt

Director, Member Advocacy, SHRM (Society for Human Resource Management)

Janice spoke for our Project Management Institute (PMI) Mile Hi Chapter about banishing burnout and reducing stress at our December chapter meeting.

These are very timely topics especially with the travails over the last two years along with the stress of end of year deliverables and the holidays.

She gave a multitude of practical stress reduction techniques.

The audience appreciated her talk and advised it was just what they needed at this time. Stress reduction and banishing burnout will be a problem for the foreseeable future so consider leveraging Janice’s expertise to help your organization banish burnout.

Janice was the perfect speaker to close out The Power Conference to Advance Women.

Her talk on recognizing the signs of burnout and providing the tools to deal with it was both helpful and timely.

My team and I look forward to working with her again! Thank you!

I had the opportunity to interview Janice on the link between well-being and happiness at work. At the Global Happiness at Work Summit 2021 Janice shared her insights on the shared responsibility of organizations, managers and employees to prevent burnout.

Janice is a skilled speaker and a passionate defender of workplace well-being.

Kim Hilgert

Well-being Consultant, Tryangle / Happiness at Work Summit, Belgium

Janice provided a presentation on Banishing Burnout to our Rogue Valley SHRM Chapter of Oregon this month. She did a great job of providing tools to help us navigate unchartered territory such as communicating and establishing clear boundaries in a time where the lines are blurred (in my case, working remotely), establishing priorities, and taking ownership of our own well-being instead of leaving it to others to fill our time.

Afterwards, she helped provide guidance on a specific situation I needed clarity on. Her advice was spot on. I highly recommend Janice!

Ann-Marie Ramsey (Rogue Vly SHRM)

Healthcare Talent Acquisition Partner, St. Charles Health System

I ordered her book that day and emailed her to continue to learn from her wisdom in the future!

Mary Sue Caranna

Production Manager, Guaranteed Rate Companies

I had the opportunity to attend one of Janice Litvin’s recent sessions hosted by Guaranteed Rate of Women (GROW) – “Banish Burnout: Move from Stress to Success.”

It was one of the ‘BEST’ sessions I have experienced regarding real life and easy to implement action steps to eliminate stress and tension in your life. It is so important for organizations to help their people at work develop the skills to manage stress by changing behavior. Manager and team burnout could spill over to many more levels and amount to a culture problem.

Jan Thomas

Manager, Diversity Equity & Inclusion, Guaranteed Rate Companies

After a year and a half of exhausting work amidst a pandemic, Janice was just what the doctor ordered!

I invited her to present her Banish Burnout session to a group of Volunteers of America (VOA) executives, teaching them practical skills and perspectives to move beyond burnout into healthy, balanced living.

Janice was incredibly thorough in her preparation for the session, truly taking the time to get to know the audience and the organization.

The presentation itself was energetic and engaging, and it received great reviews from those who attended. We are so grateful for her help!

Todd Cherches

I worked with Janice on a webinar for Meetings Today and she was fantastic. It was a particularly difficult, very specific, topic that required a lot of research and back-and-forth.

Janice really went above and beyond any speaker I’ve worked with to really get the subject matter very focused.

She also worked with the client to incorporate them into the presentation and participated in very detailed rehearsals. She really put the effort in to make sure everything was right, and the program was a great success.

Tyler Davidson

Craig Harrison (NSA Nor Cal)

I was lucky enough to attend Janice’s talk about workplace wellness. One of the things that I learned was that you need to have wellness champions all over the company. She got tremendous energy in the room, people brainstorming ideas, getting people to share what they do with their wellness programs. I highly recommend Janice as a speaker.

Wendy Hanson (HR West)

Co-Founder, CEO, Better Manager

I had the pleasure of seeing Janice present at the San Mateo High School District Employee Development Day. I liked Janice’s positive message, her interactions with the audience, and that she had a number of examples to share. Her ideas about setting healthy boundaries was appropriate for our audience, particularly the section about not allowing work to affect employees’ mood, their outlook on life, and how they communicate with others. I liked the motivation to journal daily, especially her idea about her stress audit.

Kirk Black

Deputy Superintendent, Instruction and Human Resouces, San Mateo Union High School District

Janice lives and breathes encouragement for a healthy lifestyle. She combines creative, fun exercise with lots of health tips and reminders, and is first in line to support community partners such as the American Heart Association and its Go Red for Heart campaign. Janice creates community with her students. I love her classes!

Laura Kaufman

Editor, John Muir Health Physician News

Janice came into my office a few months back and gave a very informative and engaging talk about heart health. The talk was very interactive giving the audience a chance to gain a true understanding of risks and ways to mitigate these risks. I would definitely recommend Janice to lead another discussion as she is a subject matter expert.
