A One Day Workshop Example
This one day action orientated workshop introduces Lets Talk Tough’s 6 dimensions of Well-Being in a practical and participative way so that participants will feel both motivated and able to instill new habits that will improve overall wellness and well-being at work.
Most organisations are aware of the benefits of a ‘well’ workforce in terms of engagement, motivation, retention and ultimately performance. Whilst Organisations can always do more to create an environment where well-being is supported and encouraged it is the individuals responsibility to find it within themselves. This workshop will help each individual find the starting point of their own journey and to be able to plot a route that lays down firm roots at each step of the way to whatever goal is defined.
Content will include discussions around topics that include
- Defining what is meant by wellness and well-being and the benefits of well-being to individuals, teams and the Organisation
- Introducing the Lets Talk Tough 6 Dimension model of Well-Being
- Finding a sense of meaning, purpose and control
- Developing a positive attitude, a positive attitude and mental toughness through emotional intelligence
- Becoming healthier, fitter and having more energy
- Creating strong relationships and feeling able to deal with difficult situations confidently
- Taking responsibility for our own growth and development
- Creating and taking opportunities to progress in role and career
