Title: Ramp Up Your Resilience and Boost Your Wellbeing
Objectives: Help staff to recover, recharge, and develop daily habits to maintain their morale, motivation, and sense of wellbeing.
Some of the key content explored:
- Why we’re wired to worry, and how to put worry into perspective.
- The single biggest factor that undermines our wellbeing – and how to overcome it.
- How to manage mental, physical, and emotional fatigue.
- Explore ‘Green Zone’ thinking based on the work of one of the world’s leading leadership gurus (and someone I’ve worked with).
- How to move from ‘manic mind’ to ‘mindful mind.’
- Why we struggle to switch off, and how to make sure we do.
- Why bad feelings can sometimes do you good.
`Resilience and compassion have been the buzz words for a few years now for Primary Care Staff; real virtues in the face of multiple challenges. Paul's talk was a virtuoso tour through the strategies and attitudes we health professionals require to be resilient and caring. We laughed, and we learned. It was truly excellent. Many thanks.``
