Manage your energy, not your time

For everyone
For managers
1h

The research is clear that individual wellbeing, work performance and organizational outcomes suffer in the long term unless employees develop the ability to balance the demands of the modern work world through better management of their physical, mental, emotional and spiritual energy. This rich, interactive and inspiring training helps employees understand that self-care is not a luxury, but rather an absolute necessity for showing up as the best versions of themselves at work and at home. It offers new insights that help participants recontextualize their own wellbeing as an essential business imperative and provides realistic strategies for enhancing physical, emotional, mental and spiritual energy so they can contribute more fully and sustainably to their professional and personal lives.

During this workshop, we will:

  1. Understand the connection between personal self-care, work performance and organizational outcomes
  2. Learn and practice strategies to increase self-awareness and manage and expand energy capacity in all four energy dimensions (physical, emotional, mental and spiritual)
  3. Understand the benefit of managing energy instead of time
  4. Gain clarity on individual purpose and align with behaviors that support people and things that matter most
  5. Understand how to support others in their own energy management journey

After the workshop, you will have learned:

  • How to manage and expand your own energy capacity in 4 dimensions
  • How to support others in their own energy management journey
