Founder of Lead with Levity, Dr. Walker discusses evidence-based ways both clinicians and their clients can learn to thrive, not just survive, in the workplace. Drawing on her expertise as a leadership and levity researcher, she shares practical tools to expand resilience through humor, play, and yes, even fun, in our work and overall in our lives.
