After over 18 months deep into this global pandemic, many teachers may feel like they are stuck in ‘surviving’ – with ‘thriving’ nowhere in sight. Our teachers have been under immense pressure both in and out of the classroom and overwhelm, mental health problems and finding a work-life balance has been understandably difficult.
Help your staff regain a sense of control with my program, Workplace Wellbeing and give your teams vital tools to help manage everyday triggers and reduce stress.
Workplace Wellbeing is an evidence-based mindfulness program based on somatic approaches – engaging the mind, body, brain and behaviour.
How does it work?
This program teaches the Kiloby Inquiries (KI) which is a set of applied mindfulness techniques supported by the latest evidence on the relationship between trauma and the body and has improved the mental health of thousands of individuals across the world.
With a bottom-up approach, your staff will be able to identify what drives their workplace overwhelm and stress and learn practical and effective tools to process their own work-related issues, negative self-talk and personal problems that feed into the workplace.
How will it help?
Whether it’s managing difficult behaviours in the classroom, having confronting conversations at parent-teacher interviews or tackling report-writing time, your staff will walk away from this program with a direct, practical approach to processing their own emotions, managing everyday triggers and reducing stress.
Workplace Wellbeing will help your staff to:
- Be emotionally available for their students
- Positively collaborate with their colleagues
- Find ways to switch off from work and refresh the mind
- Avoid stress and burning out
- Build productive focus
- Improve staff morale
- Develop better relationships with parents
- Manage student behaviour with a clear mind
- Meet report writing timelines with ease
- Solve professional issues with respect, initiative and innovation
- Increase work success, satisfaction and fulfillment.
This program is delivered in one day, two half days or eight one-hour sessions over one term. You can select the format that is most suitable to your school timetable.
