As Executive Directors, Supervisors, and Managers your goal is to build a cohesive, well-balanced, and effective team. One of the ways you can support them is through introducing strategies related to building a professional practice of mindfulness.

Considering new possibilities to support the management of stressors, juggling multiple priorities, and engaging in healthy practices may help reduce staff absenteeism, increase productivity, and will facilitate happy, productive teams.

Participants of this innovative session will examine the definition of resiliency and what that looks like, living in a fast-paced world. They will explore factors within their workplaces that contribute to the four components of resiliency and how they may support their teams with possible strategies.

Participants will be introduced to a new theory called Positive Acceptance and will be given practical tools for how to support teams with incorporating this type of thinking into everyday problem solving. A variety of strategies related to building a mindfulness based practice and relaxation strategies will also be shared.

This lunch & learn is hosted by the Early Childhood Community Development Centre (ECCDC).
