Registration for RISE Wellness Lunch & Learns

During this pandemic we as a staff and faculty have had our own set of mental gymnastics to hurdle in order to stay positive, hopeful and on-track.  RISE is offering a six month series of Wellness/Leadership one hour “Lunch and Learns.” All are 12:00pm-1:00pm and start in late January.

Throughout the series, you will practice various coping strategies such as self-talk, journaling, meditation, coaching skills, self-awareness, leadership strategies and more to help you sustain yourself as a professional during this ongoing pandemic. You will be given the opportunity to start a journal, monitor your self talk, plan a daily meditation routine, revisit your leadership skills, learn to self-soothe when stressors arise, and develop a simple but elegant plan to coach your direct reports that empowers and uplifts them as well as holds them accountable.

Why you should join us:

  • It is an investment of one hour per month with optional follow-up homework
  • You get out of it what you put into it as well as a chance to build community with your colleagues
  • You will be given the opportunity to evaluate each workshop so they can be tweaked based on your needs and expectations
  • The workshops build in skill development
  • A bibliography will be provided at the end of each workshop so you can continue your learning based on your own personal interests/needs
  • It is fun and educational and practical – participate as little or as much as you choose
  • You do not have to attend all 6 workshops – you can pick and choose – Register here!
