Employees identify work as the number one stressor in their lives (Forbes). Strong resiliency skills are essential for a healthy workforce. Challenges can range from organizational change to workplace conflicts and resiliency gives you the capacity to deal with ongoing stress. This workshop introduces the eight key areas of resilience and hands-on practical strategies to boost personal resiliency.
This workshop explores several key components of resiliency – optimism, control, and gratitude; and through that lens applies concepts of self-care. Engaging in self-care and applying resiliency skills has been proven to reduce stress, anxiety, and depression, while increasing personal health and stronger relationships. Attendees will participate in activities to increase resiliency skills and investigate tools to boost self-care.
For many people, the pursuit of a healthy work/life balance seems like an impossible goal. With so many of us torn between juggling heavy workloads, managing relationships, and squeezing in outside interests, it's no surprise that more than one in four Americans describe themselves as “super stressed.” And that’s not balanced—or healthy. In these situations, we are also charged with “getting along” with people at work. This workshop will explore how to build a strong team, while still managing to take care of ourselves.
Boundaries are the guidelines that keep an individual mentally, physically, emotionally, and spiritually safe. Boundaries are a critical component of self-care. It is essential to have personal boundaries in order to have healthy relationships. This workshop explores the importance of setting boundaries and the challenges of holding onto boundaries when tested.
While we all need a certain amount of stress to spur us on and help us perform at our best, the key to managing stress lies in that one magic word: balance. Not only is achieving a healthy work/life balance an attainable goal but workers and businesses alike see the rewards. When workers are balanced and happy, they are more productive, take fewer sick days, and are more likely to stay in their jobs. (http://www.mentalhealthamerica.net/work-life-balance)
