Go Beyond Wellness to Wellbeing: Resilient Organizations Thrive!
Impact Employee Adaptability, Health and Wellbeing with Resiliency Training
Corporate restructuring. A new strategic direction. Mergers, acquisitions and divestitures. New boss, new coworkers, new programs, new rules! Organizational change is non-stop in today’s business world. And effectively dealing with these changes requires new skills because your organization needs to change in order to grow. But your people hate change. They question and resist it. Too much change creates ongoing stress for employees; the kind of stress that impacts productivity, engagement and ultimately health. Many companies implement wellness programs but too many of these programs only include the physiological elements of wellness, often ignoring the mental and emotional aspects of wellness that lead to overall wellbeing.
Resilience training can turn our natural resistance to change into a supporting force. According to research by Gallup, adjusting wellness programs to encompass elements other than just physical wellbeing can improve the bottom line even more than physical wellness programs alone.
Our fear of change is biological and based on human evolution. But fortunately, we are adaptable! Training helps people identify the sources of stress, understand their natural mental responses to it, and provides them with practical strategies to become more adaptive. Resiliency approaches can actually rewire our brains to accept and embrace change in positive ways. Employees become more resilient and so does the organization.
Along with presenting research and case studies, Dr. Mulqueen will provide practical approaches participants of the webcast can utilize immediately to improve their resilience. Guest speaker Nancy Evans of Blue Cross Blue Shield will discuss how her organization has made Resilience a priority and share successes from their approach.
