5 PATHWAYS TO WELLNESS IN THE CORPORATE WORLD
Wellness is more than being free from illness. It is the active process of becoming aware of and making choices toward a healthy and fulfilling life. Wellness is a dynamic process of change and growth encompassing many interrelated dimensions of emotional wellness, physical wellness, and social wellness.
Realizing the benefits, many forward-thinking corporations are trending toward employee-based wellness programs. In this creative, interactive workshop, Julianna Lyddon, MC, presents five pathways that will expand your concept of wellness in the corporate environment. The workshop is uniquely designed to motivate executives and employees to implement practices beneficial for growth and development in their careers and personal lives. Following are the five pathways and their importance in today’s highly competitive corporate world.
THE FIVE COMPONENTS OF THE HALF-DAY WORKSHOP:
•Emotional Intelligence. According to Warren Bennis, author of On Becoming a Leader, “In those fields I have studied, emotional intelligence is much more powerful than IQ in determining who emerges as a leader. IQ is a threshold competence. You need it, but it doesn’t make you a star. Emotional intelligence can.”
•Personal Power and Passion. Complacent, indifferent, and unenthusiastic employees are not creative contributors to a corporation. Passion in the workplace is fundamental to productivity. Passion is like fuel to the fire–it is the energy that creates the creative flow. When consciously understood and harnessed, passion serves as a powerful motivator where companies and their employees both benefit.
•Relationship Building Skills. Skilled social leaders do not rely on only one form of communication, but rather utilize all available methods– technical, verbal, non-verbal, and written skills–to effectively interact with colleagues and clients. Being a socially engaged leader is not an innate skill. In today’s dynamic climate of constantly changing communication methods, success in business requires embracing, adapting, and mastering new communication skills and methods as they develop.
•MindfulnessTraining. One of the best and least costly pathways to happiness, contentment, and wellness is through living mindfully. Mindfulness training and exercises lead to acquiring habits that keep one living in the moment. Employees who are present and focused live with conscious purpose and intent.
•Creativity and Motivation. Creativity is the ability to produce fresh, diverse and unique ideas. Thinking creatively requires looking at things through a different lens unencumbered by rules, customs, or norms. Some are creative by nature, but there are methods and exercise that can teach us how to think creativity, and in turn motivate us to seek creative solutions to business challenges.
