The change in our work arrangements happened rapidly, seemingly overnight. Immediately, we all had to deal with the stress of sudden changes to our routines. The most important implication of the breakneck changes currently under way, is that there is no going back to normalcy. From changes in the way we can travel to new technologies, policies and procedures in the workplace, what is certain that there is no going back to what ‘used to be’. What can we do to respond to the changes before us and cultivate an outlook which will feed our ability to adapt and thrive to our ‘new normal’? This workshop discusses strategies that will help us gain a new perspective in order to stay in balance, both at work and in our personal lives.

LifeWorks Learning also offers this workshop specifically for leadership groups

Breakdown: Lecture (55%), Interactive discussions (45%)

The 90 minutes workshop is for all employees, in any organization. Today, more than ever, we must adopt a positive and constructive attitude in order to remain resilient and preserve our mental health.

The workshop begins with a presentation of the different changes we have experienced in the last few months, whether it be at work, school or in our social life.  These changes bring their own set of concerns, so it is important to develop a self-awareness that will help us grow. Participants are invited to discuss the importance of reflection and self-awareness. Five key strategies are then presented: Vision, Opportunities and Strengths, Threats, Values and finally, Action Plan.  Several examples are provided, and participants are encouraged to identify and share their strengths and opportunities.  The workshop continues with an overview of strategies that can be used to manage anxiety and remain resilient.  In the final activity, employees identify the first action they will take to put the concepts discussed into practice.  In conclusion, a synthesis of the main concepts is made and the available resources, both external and those of the EFAP, are put forward.
