RESILIENCE & SELF CARE

A resilient team is a happy, healthy, engaged team. Though organizations once believed self care had no place at work, forward-thinking employers now understand that being proactive means supporting whole-person wellness practices and encouraging healthy work/life balance.

Shifting away from a workplace context, this session looks broadly at personal wellness, resilience and self care including what they are, and what they're not.  Participants will leave with strategies to keep their finger on the pulse of their own mental health and flag and address changes.  We'll shift the concept of resilience from a vague idea into practical terms, with its various components explained and participants challenged to adopt their own definition.  This session can be delivered in “Lunch & Learn” format, and is ideal for employee/community wellness initiatives, an event open to members of the public or as an introduction to personal wellness.

Duration: 1 hour (50 min. content + Q&A)

Optimal Wellness: The Guidebook to Resilience and Self Care

Let's explore resilience from both a personal and organizational standpoint. This session will empower workplace leaders to take charge of their own psychological health and nurture the resilience of their teams. What steps are you taking to protect your mental health and build resilience? How are you promoting these concepts to your team members? In times of difficulty old adages like "everything happens for a reason" serve very little practical purpose and sometimes end up eliciting a sense of helplessness rather than empowering us to take charge of our own mental health.  This session is ideal for organizations who are ready to get proactive about psychological wellness and work on culture change. 

Duration: 2 hours (100 min. content + Q&A)

Leaders often carry a gigantic burden in their roles with the expectation of inspiring strong performance in their teams while maintaining their own wellbeing.  Burnout is a real risk and finding balance between work, personal and family demands is getting tougher.  This workshop will arm leaders with essential tools for striking that balance, navigating the challenges that leadership roles inevitably bring when we take on additional responsibilities and building a team that’s stronger than ever.  This session lays a foundation to inspire new leaders, managers and supervisors to take psychological health and safety just as seriously as we take physical health and safety at work.

Stress impacts us all, and is to some degree an unfortunate reality of the fast paced world we live in.  But what about when it reaches a point where day to day life has become difficult to manage, and the small pleasures we once enjoyed just aren’t packing much punch anymore?  We all respond differently to anxiety, so signs that a co-worker might be struggling can be difficult to spot.  To stay mentally healthy, the ability to recognize our own unique stress response and employ strategies to manage it before we reach our boiling point are key skills.  This session explores practical strategies to build our resilience, empowering us to take charge of stress.

Let's Talk! Conversation Navigation 101

The perfect choice for groups who are ready to move beyond the theoretical and actively practice navigating conversations about mental health in the workplace.  Participants are introduced to a handy memory aid which provides a framework for offering support to someone who may be struggling.  Although each situation is unique some important “Do”s and “Don’t”s are covered, inspiring confidence in our ability to be effective helpers.  Our role as helpers is not to solve a person’s problems or even to give advice.  Instead, by listening and expressing compassion – while maintaining appropriate boundaries – we aim to connect the individual with resources and professional supports that meet their needs.  Please note that this session is led in the style of a workshop, and will be best suited to groups who already have some degree of knowledge and ease with the topic of mental health.

Duration: 2 hours (100 min. content + Q&A)

Whether it comes in the form of exciting organizational progress and growth or unanticipated challenges, change is a certainty.  Are your organization's leaders prepared to meet the mental health needs of their team members when stress levels surge?  Resistance to change and the varied needs of team members in coping with change can prompt even the most fearless leader to experience frustration and self doubt. Left unmanaged, poor mental health will affect productivity, engagement, workplace culture and morale, and can drastically increase absenteeism and turnover rates – and when leaders themselves are struggling, we can’t ignore the risk of burnout.  Employers have a legal obligation to make an inquiry and devise reasonable accommodations for team members who are struggling with their mental health, but unfortunately these situations don’t come with a How-To Manual.  Leaders who attend this session will learn how to address mental health needs during high-stress times while prioritizing their own wellbeing and modelling positive coping.
