The work of supporting and counselling women and children who have survived violence is emotional. It can effect one’s mental and physical health and can result in employees feeling burnt out, drained and stressed. Most employees in the sector report feeling fatigued by the overwhelming emotional response to the work.
At Women’s Habitat we are well aware of stresses which come from working within our organization. We acknowledge our stressful environment and the toll it takes on all of us. We want to do what we can to protect the health and wellness of our employees. After all, none of us can show up in our lives and do our best when we are sick, stressed or overwhelmed.
This is why we are so excited to embark on this new wellness journey together. Starting this September 7th, 2019 staff at the Women’s Habitat will receive resilience training provided by the Leadership Wellness Group.
The Resilient by Design program helps participants develop life skills and wellness habits proven to cultivate personal resilience, self-awareness and peak performance.
One of the main objectives of the program is to facilitate the adoption of daily practices in support of self-care and well-being.
Resilient by Design is a 10-week program offered on-line and via live workshops. In addition to the formal training sessions, each participant receives individual coaching.
We are honoured to be offered this unique and exciting opportunity thanks to Leadership
