Stress, negativity, overwhelm, and disconnection are all problems in the modern workplace. Human needs are not being met. Through mindfulness, gratitude, growth, and connection, our schools, companies, and organizations can improve workplace culture, enhance individual health, and increase engagement.
Through authentic narrative, current research, and engaging interactions, my talks are designed to combine elements of intrapersonal (internal) and interpersonal support. This builds the resilience of individuals and communities.
When individuals have this support, they feel safe and comfortable to bring their whole selves into the workplace. This is called psychological safety, and it's the most important factor in creating effective teams.
According to researcher Amy Edmonson, psychological safety is a,“shared belief held by members of a team that the team is safe for interpersonal risk-taking... [it] describes a team climate characterized by interpersonal trust and mutual respect in which people are comfortable being themselves.’’ When individuals build personal resilience and psychological safety has been established, cultures change.
I combine educational content to enhance personal health and wholeness with common humanity interventions and activities that support trust and respect. In combination, these tools create high-functioning teams and improve the culture of work environments.
