Programs can be customized to cultivate resilience and beat burnout in your healthcare, leadership, and project management teams.
The burnout crisis is real, and the numbers are staggering. 23% of employees are chronically burned out, and 47% more are headed in that direction (and those stats are prior to the pandemic!). The stresses of our personal and professional lives often overlap one other, causing the pressure to multiply. So how do you keep yourself healthy and moving forward when times are tough?
Answer: Learn your habitual stress reactions and develop customized responses to recover faster and more effectively.
This open, honest, and funny program combines Positive Intelligence® and storytelling to help identify how your internal Judge reacts to challenging situations. Once you observe the Judge’s behaviors, you’re empowered to intentionally leverage your “Sage” mind skills such as empathy, curiosity, and innovation to counteract them. This increases mental flexibility and creates the ability to choose resilience and growth over overwhelm and burnout in the face of challenge.
Perfectionism, people-pleasing, avoidance, micromanagement, hyper-achievement… these are just a few of the common ways we unintentionally sabotage ourselves, and by extension our teams. These behaviors can become so ingrained we become dependent on them for results and stop seeing the negative impacts they incur.
While they can generate short-term results, these “Saboteur” mental muscles (thoughts and habits based in emotions like anxiety, fear, doubt, and shame) will always cause stress, disconnection, and burnout in the long run. On the flip side, we also have positive “Sage” mental muscles (thoughts and habits based in empathy, curiosity, values, creativity, etc.). Mental Fitness is the balance of the Sage vs. the Saboteurs.
Using Positive Intelligence® (PQ), this program examines common Saboteurs and the negative impacts they have on individual and team dynamics. Participants will learn neuroscience-based pattern interrupts that can be used at any time to weaken Saboteur habits and strengthen their Sage mental muscles. As Mental Fitness increases, so does individual and team performance.
Have you ever said something to someone that unintentionally upset, or even offended, them? Even with the best intentions, our words sometimes have unintended impacts. How do you recover from the disconnection and rebuild trust when that happens?
This session provides one solution to that problem: Conversational Intelligence® (C-IQ®). C-IQ is a neuroscience framework for recovering from unintentional impacts and building trust in communication. During a conversation, there’s a neurochemical cocktail that’s influencing all parties involved. These influences are unconscious, however, we can learn to recognize the signs of neurochemical impacts. That knowledge is key to building relationships with intention and having effective conversations around challenging topics.
Participants will learn easy-to-use tools for engaging in effective, connected conversation with clients, peers, and team members. Through this session they’ll:
Does “fair” mean that everyone is treated the same, or that everyone is treated as an individual? The answer is: Yes.
Core values are the foundational, guiding principles that dictate human behaviors and actions. How we recognize people’s core values is one of the fastest ways to create a foundation of connection (or conflict) for the entire project. Identified values contribute to successful, customized solutions. Missed values lead to lowered team morale poor solution outcomes, and the cost of re-work while trying to meet their needs.
Participants will learn to identify core values by:
Knowing your team members’ core values gives profound insight into what keeps them connected and moving forward, even with conflicting beliefs or points of view. Following the session participants will be able to:
Leaders tend to be problem solvers by nature. It’s rewarding to fix things and help people! When someone shares a challenge the first instinct is often, “How do we fix the problem?”
However, fixing has a dark side: It take growth experiences away from others by not letting them discover their own solutions. It can also add to stress and overwhelm to our already full plates.
The truth is that not every problem needs to be fixed, and that our personal solutions aren’t always a good fit for someone else. This program explores different motivations for fixing and identify which impacts them. From there they’ll learn coaching skills to support others through a challenge without fixing anything. Making space for team members to grow is a key leadership skill to ensure a strong, connected, high-functioning team. Participants will:
Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® (MBTI®) assessments provide a safe, manageable framework to approach the immense topic of individual and team strengths and challenges. Though expanded self-awareness and awareness of others these sessions empower more effective communication, conflict resolution, and team function. The insights provided by this tool allow participants to:
