Catering to your organisation's needs, these interventions
and strategies can be delivered as:
3 Hour Skills
The programs below can be delivered as 3-hour workshops or intervention programs, depending on the requirements and needs of your organisation.
A first meeting or assessment session will determine your current and most immediate needs. Specialised psychological and intervention programs can also be developed that may appear outside of the scope of the current offerings.
MENTAL HEALTH IN THE WORKPLACE
Mental Health in the workplace focuses on understanding mental health risks and mitigating these. The program also examines practical ways of assisting one's self and reaching out for help. A primary goal of the program is to de-stigmatise mental health challenges and provide individuals with a balanced approach in dealing with possible mental health challenges they may face. This program assists individuals who may be suffering from depression, anxiety disorders, substance use disorders or other psychiatric/psychological difficulties.
STRESS AND BURNOUT PREVENTION
Stress reduction strategies improve work satisfaction and reduce absenteeism (as well as presenteeism). The strategies employed by David are cutting edge leading interventions, based on cognitive behavioural training/therapy, mindfulness and clinical neuroscience. The workshop assists employees to improve levels of stress, improve sleep, reduce anxiety, increase resilience, and optimize work-life balance.
Employee dissatisfaction is considered a major reason for employee churn. Satisfaction concerns a number of interdependent factors such as organisational involvement, meaning, work-life balance, engagement, values alignment and purpose. This program enables individuals within the organisation to align these factors and make better decisions, so as to build and cultivate more prosperous and satisfactory work-life engagements.
MINDFULNESS IN THE WORKPLACE
Mindfulness is an important discipline and practice for the improvement of wellbeing, quality of life, quality of interpersonal relationships and capacity to deal with stress and anxiety. It is largely based on ancient eastern traditions and is also firmly rooted in contemporary science (psychology and neuroscience). Mindfulness is being incorporated in many organisations as part of their 'first line' health and wellness strategies. The mindfulness programs delivered are tailored to the individuals and organisations needs and range from in-depth mindfulness practices to short term mindfulness and situational awareness programs.
BUILDING GRIT AND RESILIENCE
Grit may be defined as a combination of resilience and perseverance. Grit is a psychological trait, but most importantly is a skill that can be developed. Grit can be developed as a skill. This program provides a series of skills and strategies geared towards the cultivation of Grit.
Conflict within an organisation may present in a range of different forms, for example, it may appear covertly (as passive-aggressive exchanges), alliances containing sidelining and exclusion, to overt bouts of anger or bullying. Most organisational bullying is covert and implicit, yet equally destructive and counterproductive.
Change within an organisation is often stressful for individuals within the change process. Change brings new opportunity, but also introduces uncertainty; which is often a driver for anxiety, distress and reductions in work satisfaction and underperformance. Individuals often lack the skills and knowledge in dealing with change. There are a number of psychological strategies to help individuals within a process of organisational change. Strategies which address associated stressors and anxiety associated with change are often not offered in traditional change management processes. This program or intervention process offers individuals within organisation tools and strategies that assist with the adaptation to change processes.
