The training will focus on the connections between emotional intelligence and productive leadership. Intentional, mindful and empathetic relationships are at the heart of effective leadership. Leaders need skills in supporting their own self care, so they can effectively meet the needs of those who report to them. Together, we will use strengths-based, solutions-focused perspectives to bring new approaches to the challenges and successes in our own leadership. Promoting Wellness in Staff Teams: Conversations for Leaders uses a collaborative learning approach and may utilize polls, group discussions, and break out time to further discuss our experiences and learnings.
1. Appraise understanding of leadership models and supervision styles.
2. Practice how to tailor wellness conversations across staff teams.
3. Develop and strengthen personal and professional strategies that promote connection to self care as leaders.
4. Increase confidence to promote self care strategies and ideas amongst staff teams.
