Why take this workshop?

Across all industries, people are experiencing an uptick in stress, incivility, and dissatisfaction. If you are interested in navigating the difficult challenges in this unprecedented moment with a wider lens focused on well-being of self and other, or if you want to explore self-leadership, mental agility, and extreme self-care, no matter your circumstances, this series is for you.

About the sessions

Session 1: Wellbeing and the Self 

1. Validate the uncertain and complex environment for the human species globally

2. Select tools for personal resiliency and wellbeing.

3. Review the tenets of habit science to attain important goals and lead the self.

We cannot lead when our resources are on fumes. Explore how to practice self-leadership, the necessary bedrock to leading others. The ability to self-regulate and lead with vigor requires we attend to extreme self-care, no matter your circumstances. Join us for this lively, supportive discussion to explore strategies to live and lead your best life.

Session 2: Wellbeing and Difficult Others 

1. Build your relational capacity to more compassionately interact with others who are discharging pain into the world.

2. Review a triage system for identifying specific types of difficult others.

3. Practice effective evidence-based remedies for wellbeing protection when exposed to difficult people.

With over 8 billion people in the world, we often encounter really challenging people that can cause an outsized stress response. If relationships determine the quality of our lives, we can build our relational capacity by deploying skills used in nursing and peace literacy. We must triage the most challenging others around us to reduce the stress effect and protect our own wellbeing, while maintaining the dignity of others.

Session 3: Wellbeing in the Workplace 

1. Review the evidence on pain points in the workplace.

2. Explore causes of the great resignation in the context of basic human needs

3. Discover innovations on wellbeing in the workplace

A pair of recent MIT studies on causes of the great resignation speak to an alarming rate of toxic workplaces. Review these elements and explore its antidote, psychological safety and how to build it. Ideas on what innovators are doing to promote a culture of wellness, across a range of industries will be explored.
