Well-being at Workplace

Emotionally intelligent self aware leaders promote strong emotionally intelligent self aware teams.

The onus is on the leader to drive their own well being. When they do, they model the model.

Is the pattern of well being and self care ingrained within your company’s culture? Would you like support in making that happen?

We live in a stressful world, and one thing we know for sure is that the impact of stress on us all as individuals is taking its toll on our overall well-being. More and more managers are becoming advocates for promoting self care within the workplace. We spend 8 hours a day working, 8 hours of personal and family time, and 8 hours sleeping. Of the two days rest we have at the weekend, we spent much of that time in preparation for the week ahead. Learning to use our time productively and effectively requires of us to learn skills and techniques to de-stress in our lives.

Organizations are striving to create friendly stress free environments. Gone are the days of the “boss management” style, and organizations that are “leading the way” know that their people are their company. An organization that relates and connects well, with equal support and opportunity for all, with awareness of diversity and inclusion, will grow in every way.

Mental health is vital in the workplace for an organization to grow, and managers are taking care of their own mental health and supporting and promoting that on an organizational level.

A culture of well-being starts at the top. Your business is a platform for change – at community level, and it starts within your own community. Business leaders can foster inspiring and healthy work environments where employees can reach their full potential, and in-turn make an even bigger impact in our communities.

Norah Finn, owner of Alethea, works with organizations, big and small, to support managers in supporting theirs workers by introducing self care programs. These include meditation, mindfulness and workshops, with the emphasis on personal well being. The programs are as individually unique as the companies themselves, but all are formed with the same goal – to make them simple, useful, user friendly, informative, knowledgeable, and fun.

If wish further information on how your company and your team can benefit from well being activities focused on the workplace, please click here to contact Alethea.

In 2017, as part of our Health and Wellness week, we were delighted to have Norah Finn visit our company to talk to us about Choice Theory.She walked in the door with a smile on her face and a welcome that would lighten anyone’s heart… The room was buzzing afterwards, as her messages seemed to resonate everyone… The workshop was a great success, injecting an energy in the workplace during the days that followed. Norah’s students informally discussed what they had learned and were thrilled at the opportunity to reflect on their personal well-being.”

I want to thank Norah Fin from Alethea on coming into CTDG to facilitate a Team bounding session. Norah is very good at what she does and her facilitating skills are excellent! Throughout the session,  Norah ensured all staff participated within the process. The session also provided the space whereas staff were encouraged to give their option on what they seeing as a positive impact on the work, and also, not so positive ,and they were encouraged to provide new ideas to better the work and it’s outcomes leading to meaningful outcomes for the Traveller community. I would like to Thank Norah for her time with CTDG and would recommend Norah to other projects.
