HEALTHY BEHAVIORS IN THE WORKPLACE

We seem to be reminded daily of the need to improve our health habits and behaviors; e.g. better eating patterns, the importance of exercise, the need to get adequate sleep, the art of maintaining balance in our lives.  Yet there seems to be nothing about improving our habits and behaviors in the workplace, where there is evidence of some toxic behavior.  This workshop addresses healthy vs. toxic workplace behaviors and how to achieve a healthier workplace environment.

IF I ONLY KNEW THEN WHAT I KNOW NOW!

In this presentation, I shared some of the most valuable lessons I learned in my 30 year career;  I share some of the leadership skills I found to be most important, the experiences that taught me the most, the biggest mistakes I made and how they shaped me, and the memories that are most poignant.

WOMEN WORKING WITH WOMEN

There are many challenges in working in a largely female profession; some of the behaviors exhibited are very healthy, and some very unhealthy.  This workshop examines the behaviors women exhibit in the workplace, explores repercussions of these behaviors, and offers suggestions for more successful, productive strategies for the future.

CULTURAL DIVERSITY

As we have recruited healthcare professionals from all over the world to fill personnel shortages, our workplace is more diverse now than ever in our history.  This poses several challenges for all in the healthcare world.  In order to have successful team behavior, good communication channels, and most importantly, quality outcomes, we need to address this diversity and successfully bring all groups together.  This workshop addresses the central concepts of cultural diversity and offers a framework to use as organizations begin to deal with diversity issue.

TYPE THEORY

An introduction to type theory using the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator.  Type theory is based on Carl Jung’s theory of psychological type and describes personality preferences on 4 scales: introversion/extroversion, sensing/intuition, thinking/feeling and judging/perceiving.  The seminar introduces the theory and explains what the scales mean and how they relate to personality characteristics.  Participants are given the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator before the seminar; the results will be given during the seminar.
