Participants learn techniques for building resilience to help them effectively manage stressful situations.
Resilience is that ability to successfully adapt to stress in the face of adversity. It involves behaviors, thoughts, and actions. It can be learned and cultivated in everyone. We all have stories of resilience, and they can be used to connect authentically. They also help to develop leadership behaviors. Stories of overcoming obstacles can ignite your performance and that of your team. Learn how to use what you have overcome in the past to fuel your future performance and become a better leader.
Individuals in almost any work environment can face demanding interactions as a regular part of their day. When the demands of the job outweigh the emotional reserves a person has available to them, they can suffer from “compassion fatigue” as well as burnout and stress. This can lead to negative consequences within a professional and personal context.
Most people are familiar with stress and live with a certain level of stress in their everyday lives, but what about when the stress becomes toxic and leads to burnout and finally compassion fatigue? All are part of a continuum of feelings, thoughts, and behaviors that can impact how effective and satisfied an employee is in their professional and personal lives.
This practical, not depressing (promise!) program offers tips and techniques to recognize the symptoms of compassion fatigue, burnout and stress and what can be done to help resolve them. The presentation will introduce participants to what realistic, tangible self-care looks like and offers different ways to think about being more resilient, even in demanding situations.
Stress is a factor in almost everyone’s lives. How we learn to handle stress and alleviate it are vital to our success. One proven antidote to stress is mindfulness.
Mindfulness is the ability to notice what is going on in the present moment and connect it with thoughts and feelings. Mindfulness will not remove life’s pressures, but it can help you respond to these pressures in much more productive ways.
Many people think that engaging in mindful activities involves a yoga mat, hours in silence, or the ability to meditate. What if there was a different way to practice being mindful and to mitigate stress? What if being mindful isn’t as mystical as it is practical?
This course offers numerous methods to help participants practice mindfulness with easy techniques that anyone can do from the comfort of their car, while walking down the street, or in the middle of a meeting.
This presentation will show participants how mindfulness techniques can help reduce stress, increase productivity and focus, and ultimately help them get more enjoyment out of life.
What does self-care really look like and how do we fit it into our everyday lives? The message we typically get from society is that we have to spend a lot of money or time on self-care by having a spa day, pedicure/manicure, massage, bodywork, or taking a big vacation. While all these things are nice they also cost a lot of money or take a lot of time.
In this presentation we discuss self-care in real time on a real budget. We will look at the role of mindset, breath and humor to actively engage in self-care as well as the impact of exercise, relaxation, and stress management techniques.
Self-care is about building a life you don’t have to regularly escape from and it shouldn’t break your bank either.
