The World Health Organization defines burnout as a syndrome “resulting from chronic workplace stress that has not been successfully managed.” As we transition back into the workplace, managers and employees may be facing challenges in implementing employer “back to work” policies, accommodating individual preferences and needs, ramping up productivity, and on top of all that, dealing with a mental health crisis. This one-day course will provide you with important insights into well-being and mental health in the workplace. You will acquire practical tools that will enable you to use these insights to navigate thoughts and emotions as you experience life’s trials and adversity. You will be encouraged to be introspective and share your experiences in a safe space to help you gain a deeper understanding of your own levers for developing resilience and for thriving in times of change and uncertainty in the workplace. Participation in the Program The course recognizes that there is no “one-size-fits-all” approach to well-being and thus each participant’s well-being toolkit must be as unique as they are. To this end, as participants invest and commit to their own growth process, the course facilitator will support them in developing tools and resources that work best in improving their well-being.
