Audiences: Workplaces including ERGs, managerial and leadership association summits/conferences. Can be geared toward managers, executives, employees, faculty, ERGs, HR and EAP groups, safety, and DEI teams.
Description: More workplaces and corporations have recognized that the foundation of retention, productivity, performance, and profitability is emotionally healthy personnel and a company culture that promotes it. That is why more progressive and profitable companies are focusing on the mission, “In order to achieve, you have to put wellness first.”
This upstream commitment to workplace wellness is the foundation of a prevention culture that emphasizes connection and belonging. Part of this initiative is building resilience and defining self-care strategies so employees have the tools and resources to manage anxiety, adversity, change, and future leadership positions.
Crisis response always costs more and uses up more resources and time. Any effort to avoid that is a plus for any company HR team, DEI, or safety leader.
- How to build connection and belonging (e.g., with hybrid teams or among different age groups)
- Practical self-care strategies to manage stress and avoid conflict and burnout
- Coping skills for adversity
- How to use EAP and why time off is important for a brain reset

- The skill that is the most important for workforce retention

Thank you for your focus on employers and places of employment. Most people spend the biggest portion of their time working, with work colleagues and those cultures or environments are critical. Not only does investing in the mental health and well being of employees result in better outcomes and the bottom line but have the ability to create healthier families, relationships, and communities. I would love know more about integrating your work into the workplace.
I love that you said this: “Not only does investing in the mental health and well-being of employees result in better outcomes and the bottom line but have the ability to create healthier families, relationships, and communities.”
That is the key and the reason I want to get into more companies and fortunately, that is happening in 2023! And companies are now looking to book for both mental health month (May) and suicide prevention month (September). So that could be a place to start although I am in companies year-round now.
So I don’t know what your role is but I’ve had employee champions get me in, usually through the HR or Safety departments of workplaces. ERG groups (Employee Resource Groups) have also hired me to be a speaker. And often two groups will combine to bring me in such as an LGBTQ ERG and a professional women’s ERG. A lot of big companies have those. Smaller companies just bring me in to speak to their group. So it depends.
My presentations include helping oneself and a loved one. I get a lot of parents there asking about their kids and then young adults struggling with the overwhelm of real life which is really tough these days. Here are the pdfs.
