Key Quotes:

  • “So take a break if you need to, watch your processes, your systems, whatever it is, think about how you can level up, okay? Work with your team on leveling up, okay? And then also look at what you can delegate, okay? Those are three huge starting points for being able to combat burnout.” – Teresa Kitchens
  • “If we can take these challenging moments, we can take just a little bit of time, level up, ask ourselves what doesn’t work, then when the changes come down the road between claims, between the way that you know, companies operate, we will be further ahead, we will be matching, we will be better tomorrow than we are today.” – Teresa Kitchens
  • “Use this time to push forward. You need to take a little bit of a break, take a little bit of a break. Maybe you can clean cranky clients out of your book. Maybe that would help your team. But vision for the future and help your team to vision for the future, help them to feel like they’re moving forward, making that agency better and your industry better for tomorrow because that is what we need to always be working on.” – Teresa Kitchens
