The Delicate Art of Balance - Work / Life Harmony: Boundaries between work and non-work are blurred, especially with the evolving model of remote work. The number of requests and priorities aren’t likely to lessen. The choices made in each moment have a ripple effect, together we will discuss distractions and techniques to avoid procrastination; how to prioritize and maintain self-care routines and how values affect lifestyle choices.

Managing Stressful Situations: We humans are tension filled beings! Some stress (eustress) is healthy because it motivates us to take actions that are necessary for healthy and harmonious living. If we didn't have stress, we would not be motivated to learn new things, organize our lives, participate, or function in community activities. Come prepared to explore anticipatory, situational, chronic and time stressors and how to navigate through them.

Seasonal Stressors: Decreased hours of sunlight, year-end requirements, budgets restraints and deadlines coincide with the social and family commitments in December. When it comes to giving and receiving, we can fall into the trap of doing things or giving gifts out of guilt. Managing expectations and maintaining healthy boundaries requires frank and honest conversations about what is manageable given the reality of resources, time, and or money.

Leaning into Change: The word that instills a sense of uncertainty each time we hear it’s coming. The only thing that stays the same is that everything changes, and yet we resist the inevitable. In this session we will explore the stages of change, build awareness of habitual tendencies, and how to make incremental changes in behaviour to navigate the ever-changing landscape of life.

Coping Strategies to Prevent or Overcome Burnout: Burnout is contagious, spreading like wildfire through families, teams, and organizations, the silent thief that robs productivity, purpose and meaning to the point of becoming cynical and doubting our abilities. There is a way back and while healing starts with the individual, immunity from burnout requires a village. Bring a team member and explore expectations, communicating boundaries, asking for help, and self-care.

Unplug to Recharge: Technology has altered the way we live, work, and connect. While it was a lifeline through the pandemic, we also learned about zoom fatigue, the effects of a 24/7 news cycle, and headline stress disorder. Where attention goes, energy flows, we only have so much energy to go around. Explore how to bring more screen/life balance into your daily routines.

Resilience Micro-steps: The great disruption of 2020 taught us many lessons, human nature is to forget what was learned and move onto the next event. Each of us have been stretched in many ways, which is why having a resilience toolkit to continually evaluate and adapt is crucial to living and working well. The capacity to manage everyday stressors while staying healthy, adapting, learning from setbacks, and preparing for future challenges proactively is one of the many definitions of resilience. The Resilience at Work model outlines a complimentary set of measures that are inter-related, not linear, scientifically researched, and consider all aspects of resilience - physical, cognitive, emotional, and spiritual (purpose and values).
