Compassion Fatigue - by Jolene Brown, CSP, CPAE

Hi there! I'm Jolene Brown, a professional speaker and family business consultant from Eastern Iowa. I just returned from presenting at a really neat Women's Conference in Saskatoon Saskatchewan. It was called "Connect the Heart of the Farm" and while I was there I had a chance to have a catch-up conversation with a really good friend of mine, Elaine Froese. As we were talking about that and then about our families, and then about our health, and and then about our communities, and then about this crazy harvest we just are trying to complete, she said "oh Jolene be careful that you do not get compassion fatigue". 

Let's dive into that more. View Jolene's full video blog:
