Managing Staff Through Stressful Situations
This workshop helps you plan for the expected and the unexpected and provides practical tools for dealing with both positive and negative employee behaviors during stressful times.

Mental Health Awareness for Leaders
This course covers ways employees may present their distress and offers insights and strategies on forging supportive empathic alliances within the role of manager. The session also identifies common mistakes managers make in responding to employees in distress and explains communication skills that express support and convey positive expectancy. Participants are also given information on how to refer employees to the Employee Assistance Program.

Preventing Employee Burnout
Burnout is a growing concern for many employers, as it can impact morale, employee retention, work productivity and more. In this session, we describe the signals that leaders can watch for and introduce strategies to help them prevent burnout from impacting the workforce.

Self-Care Tips for Managers
Stressful situations, whether from internal or external sources, are inevitable in organizations. For some managers, this may lead to over-extending themselves with minimal time for self-care. This training offers tools to help managers cope with stress and thrive in their organizations.

Mindfulness: Being Present in Your Work and Life
The idea of mindfulness or being mindful is complete engagement in the present moment. It is a state where you are not thinking, reflecting, judging, or deciding, but are instead simply experiencing the things currently in your available experience. In many ways people are largely unaware of our present moment, and often operate on “auto-pilot” to some degree. The auto-pilot mode is our default mode of operation. Even when we find ourselves in a pleasurable quiet moment we automatically begin to daydream about others, plan/worry about the future or ruminate about the past. We miss living in the present moment because we fail to pay attention to it. Mindfulness is about waking up to the present moment and paying attention to our experience. Learning mindfulness is not difficult; however, it is difficult to remember to do it. This training discusses mindfulness and how to incorporate its practice into your life.

Where are you going? Goal Setting for Personal and Professional Success
Goal setting gives you long-term vision and short-term motivation. The process of setting goals allows you to choose where you want to go in your personal life as well as your professional career. A life without goals is like a road trip without a map. By knowing exactly what you want to achieve, you are less likely to get lost, and you will be happier and less frustrated along the way.
