"It has been game changing for us to have Rhonda supporting the team at HMS Trust. She brings great insight and support to our team and does so in an encouraging and supportive way, while also challenging one’s thinking. As a leader in an organisation you are always thinking how to invest and support your team and even more so in the last two years with the impact of Covid on mental –health and well-being. Rhonda has become an integral part of the support we provide to our staff and others connected to our organisation. One of our organisations’ values is family and Rhonda has become one of our family." - Ellie Wilkinson
or perhaps coaching is the best option in your workplace?
Yes we run workshops, but the impact of one on one coaching can also have a profound impact on a work environment. A Harvard Business Review of 140 leading executive coaches showed that while only 3% of coaches were hired to attend to the personal lives of executives, over 75% of the coaches found themselves assisting executives with personal issues - the 'whole' of themselves. You see, the "opponent within is more formidable than the one outside". Just an option!
Pandemics and other upheavals such as restructures can take their toll on your team - if you've had to let staff go, survivor's guilt may set in too. Rebuilding and reconnecting your team, to tap into their courage and creative genius, using a mix of mindfulness and resilience practices, is critical to any recovery.
The health of our relationships in the workplace is determined by how we manage our negative emotions, how we react to those of others, and the habitual behaviours we resort to. We illuminate the behaviours you want to change, change the relationship you have with them and prepare you for making lasting changes. Mindfulness communication inside teams ensures we proceed with compassion and consideration, respond rather than react, which means better outcomes and connections.
Your team will together, grow their own hope as they learn to acknowledge how far they've come!
