What issues are you struggling with?

Burnout & Stress Management
Executives and leaders come to me for many reasons:
  • They are juggling too many priorities and feel overwhelmed;
  • They are working long hours, but still aren't meeting their goals; 
  • They don't have a healthy work-life balance;
  • They are struggling with perfectionism or an inability to delegate; and/or
  • They are regularly feeling frustrated, irritable, depressed, or anxious about their ever-increasing workload.

If you struggle with the same issues, you are not alone. A recent survey indicates that over 90% of the U.S. workforce is feeling stressed and overwhelmed. 

I can help! I've spent 25 years in stress research and mental health. I use a research-based, proprietary system to help you learn how to re-structure your schedule, set boundaries, and put key habits and healthy behaviors in place in order to take back control of your time and your life.

Burnout & the Great Resignation: What You Need to Know

The data and debate around the great resignation can be boiled down to two questions: 1) What's causing it, and 2) What can be done about it? The answer to the first question - probably to no one's surprise - seems to be burnout.

But stress research can provide answers to the second question: what do we do about it? 

You will learn:

  • The stress continuum (and how to tell where you are on the continuum);
  • The signs of severe burnout and how they impact employee fit for duty;
  • Personal strategies to coping with stress and burnout; and
  • Organizational strategies to reduce burnout in their workforce.
Program Duration:

Can be delivered as a 45-minute keynote or a 90-120 minute workshop. Can be combined with other topics for longer workshops or retreats.

Caring for Caregivers: Focus on Compassion Fatigue

Many who work in caregiving professions do so because they – and this will sound completely obvious – care. Compassion is their jam. It brings them immense joy.

But compassion can and does get depleted under certain circumstances. Caring for others can drain our own physical and emotional strength. We feel spent and cynical. We have a hard time empathizing or caring about our patients, co-workers, and even our loved ones.

What can we do about compassion fatigue? How do we build trust? Where do we start? You will learn:

  • The signs and symptoms of compassion fatigue and how they impact employee fit for duty;
  • Research-based strategies for individuals to manage the three main contributors to compassion fatigue; and
  • Organizational strategies to prevent compassion fatigue and reduce burnout in the workforce.
Program Duration (Average):

Can be delivered as a 45-minute keynote or 90-120 minute workshop. Can be combined with other topics for longer workshops or retreats.

How to Manage Your Stress (Instead of Stress Managing You) - A Research-Based Stress Management Model

"Me? Stressed? Never!"

Let's be honest. Very few of us are lucky enough to say this. In fact, research studies show that 9 out of every 10 workers in the United States are experiencing significant workplace stress. Burnout rates have recently doubled and worker engagement levels have plummeted.

Chronic stress affects our physical and mental health. But it also significantly impacts organizations in terms of low productivity, absenteeism, and presenteeism.

Want to do something about it?

You will:

  •  Learn a 3-part stress management model based on neuroscience and stress research;
  • Discuss the daily health habits that reduce stress, prevent burnout, and promote well-being;
  • Assess thinking patterns that may create more stress in your work and relationships;
  • Apply the research model to improve work relationships and key work processes;
  • Create an action plan to make long-term, practical, and sustainable changes.
Program Duration (Average):

Can be delivered as a 45-minute keynote or 90-240 minute workshop. Can be combined with other topics for longer workshops or retreats.

Grit: How to Become More Resilient in Work and Life

When life knocks us down, there are two brain tools that help us to pick ourselves back up: grit and resilience. In psychological terms, resilience describes our emotional health. It's our ability to bounce back from challenges and the emotional strength we use to overcome crisis and failure. Grit, on the other hand, describes the mindset we use to persevere through challenges, crises, and failure.

These two brain tools work hand in hand. When life knocks us down, resilience gives us the emotional strength we need to get back on our feet. Grit is what makes us decide to get back up, brush ourselves off, and keep going.

You will:

  • Review four key elements for building grit and resilience;
  • Learn a fail-proof method for succeeding at your goals;
  • Discern the secret of staying resilient during times of crisis;
  • Discover the ten most powerful emotions to promote emotional wellbeing; and
  • Determine how to find your true passion and purpose.
Program Duration:

Can be delivered as 45-minute keynote, or a 90-240 minute workshop. Can be combined with other topics for longer workshops or retreats.

Focus on Time & Priorities Management

What creates focus? When using a camera or a pair of binoculars, it’s the lens that converges light rays on the right target. But some lenses are better than others -- crystal clear lenses sharpen our focus while blurry lenses only cloud up the view.

Likewise, some mental "lenses" you and I use in work and life will help us stay focused on the personal or professional goals we have set for ourselves. If these goals remain in sharp focus, then our actions will move us closer to the life we want. Using blurry "lenses," on the other hand, will cause us to stumble further away.

You will:

  • Review the five best practices to focus on your most important life goals and manage your time accordingly;
  • Learn four steps to translate work and life goals into a detailed action plan;
  • Discover how to overcome the internal urges or external forces that distract from your goals; and
  • Learn practical tools to manage some major distractions at work, like email and meetings.
Program Duration:

Can be delivered as a 90-240 minute workshop. Can be combined with other topics for longer workshops or retreats.

Leading Change Without Stressing Everyone Out

Organizational change can be stressful because it creates uncertainty.

Leaders will explore key organizational psychology principles to reduce resistance and gain support for their initiatives. Based on these principles, they will create individual action plans to lead their organizations successfully through change.

You will: 

  • Review research findings about the stress of change;
  • Discuss how to support teams through change;
  • Identify obstacles (e.g.,"What if we don't agree?"); and
  • Discover strategies to overcome those obstacles.
Program Duration:

Can be delivered as a 90-240 minute workshop. Can be combined with other topics for longer workshops or retreats.

What people are saying about working with Pam:


Best in 30 years

Pamela is a highly skilled speaker, certified executive coach and neuroscientist who used her combined talents to deliver one of the best group training sessions offered in the 30-year history of our leadership program.The session was focused on issues related to managing burnout and the great resignation, which were both timely and relevant for the diverse group of business, public and nonprofit leaders in our program. Pamela was extremely organized and easy to work with, and customized the training to perfectly fit our needs. I would not hesitate to recommend her to others and work with her again!

Erica - Executive Director


Superb program! Most enlightening. Thoroughly researched and meticulously documented material with exceptional presentation skills. First tier. Dr. Pamela Coburn-Litvak delivers.

Susan - Business Owner


Pamela Coburn-Litvak has both great expertise and an ability to help others create change. I recently attended her webinar on Burnout and the Great Resignation. Her research on that important topic is thorough and deep. She understands the dynamics in society and in the workplace that have led us to this crisis. More importantly, she offers real solutions to managers and leaders who have the courage and will to tackle the problem and to develop better workplaces. I strongly recommend Pam as a speaker who will both inspire you and also help you move to action.

Debra - Former CEO & COO


Pam designed and delivered an excellent webinar, Burnout and the Great Resignation. She combined research and practical steps in her presentation. She inserted probing questions and polls to engage the attendees. Participants left with tons of tools. One of the best webinars I've attended in ages.

Sharon - Consultant Broker


You were such a pleasure to work with. We've already started hearing really positive things from the survey results. Thank you so much for sharing your expertise and understanding, especially with such a timely topic. I am so grateful to you for engaging our group in a new and interesting way.

Meredith - Assistant Director


18 months into the pandemic, our team was feeling the heat. We invited Pamela to a one hour company meeting and gave her the tall order of communicating clear, actionable ways the team could prioritize activity to help reduce stress. Having the entire company hear this advice as the same time led to an almost immediate change in our expectations of each other- no more instant demands for attention and time!
Pamela did an excellent job of keeping our attention and soliciting real time involvement (I was nervous it would seem like a lecture, and that was not the case at all.). I can enthusiastically recommend Pamela to create a create a program that works for your goals, in your parameters and that delivers on the promise of actionable takeaways. Plus you will just like her. :)

Angela - Accounts Manager


Building a business has certainly been a rollercoaster, and this year won't be a walk in the park either. Attending the Rebound webinar made me feel that I'm not alone. Not only was it chock-full of industry insights, but it also gave me (and others on the call) a chance to take a pulse of our own stress levels and what's causing us stress, and an action plan to manage stress and get re-energized. Great session!

Marriot - Business Owner

Excellent Insights

Pam facilitated a time management workshop for our team. Prior to our workshop, she took the time to meet with our organization’s President and me to discuss our organization and really understand the time management issues our team had been having. Pam provided some excellent insights during our workshop and really got our team talking about some of their time management challenges. Throughout the workshop, she offered our group useful strategies and thought-provoking suggestions on how to improve our time management. I highly recommend Pam's training sessions.


Impacting Lives

I would like to thank you for speaking at our meeting. You were very informative and interesting. In particular, the applicability of your talk - e.g., your focus on stress, the significance of mental control, developing personal coping strategies, etc. - were immeasurable. I thank you for devoting your professional life to well-being. Creating our own healthy futures through lifestyle, mental awareness, ad related behaviors will benefit each of us, those we love, and by extension society as a whole. You impact countless lives.

Rod - Director of Development

Practical and Evidence-based

Pam's presentation was very good, data rich, and quite practical with several evidence-based suggestions for things we could each do to improve burnout. She also presented categories of things institutions can do to help alleviate this, too, and my physician recruitment and retention specialist is building a retention program based off these suggestions. I definitely would feel comfortable recommending Pam to other organizations who are dealing with over work and burnout.
