Languishing, Flourishing and Your Mental Health
Over the past few years, employees have been asked to do more, do their work differently and do better in new and challenging ways, all while managing family life and personal responsibilities that seem never ending. The feeling of languishing, or “will this ever end?” abounds throughout the workforce and can have a huge impact on your mental health. Working on our mental health need not be reserved just for those who are in crisis or who are faced with an official diagnosis. Mental health matters for everyone. This interactive session provides more details and helpful ideas on how to move from languishing through work and life to flourishing.

The Impact of Attitude on Work and Life
While you obviously need the appropriate knowledge and skills to do your job, the mindset with which you approach your work plays a dominant role in your ability to perform. If you’re discouraged, you work sluggishly, think small and give up easily. However, when you feel good, confident and exhilarated you can win people to your side and create dazzling projects. This workshop will help participants explore how attitude can change their life and will provide them with opportunities to develop a more positive mindset.
