Ready for change?
After months in isolation, most of us will eventually return to work. We’re not sure when exactly, or under what guidelines. But it is clear that when it does happen, the world as we knew it will have changed. And with it, the working landscape massively shifted. There’s no doubt that it’s going to be hard work. But this will be a unique opportunity for employers and businesses to redefine how they engage with and protect, their employees, their customers, and the environment.
Why take action now?
The collective pain, sadness and loss that the world has experienced as a result of coronavirus will show up in the workplace, whether we like it our not. It will appear in many forms; from low level productivity, to depression and even burnout. This is understandable given the many lives lost, jobs furloughed, and businesses destroyed. Not to mention the financial pressures and the social challenges of being quarantined for months. With global stress levels already at a record high pre C-19, it’s now more vital than ever for businesses to take an active role in building resilience across the organisation. Mental health and physical health have to become a key focus.
Reimagining your business.
How do we want to show up as a business and a brand post-Covid19? Have our values changed? What’s our strategy to move forward effectively and authentically?
These may be some of the important questions you need to answer. But before you do that, it’s going to be necessary to pause, reflect and process recent events - together as a group, and as individuals. How do you visualise this moment? Showing some vulnerability could become your greatest strength as a an organisation. In the wake of this challenging period, be sure to find pride in the community you’ve built, and the leader you’ve become.
Why a retreat?
Retreats are a purposeful change of pace, routine and environment. Aside from the business and strategy focused sessions we facilitate, these re-energising off-site experiences are designed to give employers and employees the necessary time and space, to pause, reflect, and re-focus on their own health and wellbeing - two key elements of building resilience.
We set you up for success.
You may initially see this as just more time out of the office. A delay to getting started. However, this race we are about to embark on isn’t a sprint. It’s a marathon. And with a renewed company-wide emphasis on self-care, and better connections with colleagues, you’d be surprised how quickly productivity and creativity start to improve. With boosted energy, enthusiasm and moral, it’s also much easier to retain momentum and prevent burnout. Which in the long-term, is much better for the business’ bottom line.
We understand that building resilience is a complex and personal concept; the tools that work for one person may not be helpful to another. Our programmes are designed to demonstrate a variety of useful tools at our disposal, focusing on the key areas that have been consistent in practice and research published by leading mental health organisations.
1. Health and Wellbeing
2. Support Networks
3. Coping Strategies
1. Health and wellbeing.
Our five pillar holistic approach gives participants the powerful boost they need to either kick-start, re-ignite or continue on their personal wellness journey. We include everything from daily fitness classes, meditation sessions and balanced nutrition, to creative workshops, group activities and cultural experiences.
2. Physical Health
4. Mental Wellbeing
5. Support Networks
2. Creating support networks.
Connectedness underpins everything that we do. All our workshops, activities and classes play a part in helping to form new or tighter bonds amongst peer groups. We believe that getting to know yourself and your colleagues should be fun.
Having a network of support at work is frequently highlighted as one of the most important components, not only of wellbeing, but also of long term resilience.
3. Finding coping strategies.
Coping certainly doesn’t mean keeping quiet and just getting on with it. It means prioritising, making healthy decisions and sometimes asking for help. We can learn skills to do deal with issues effectively and improve with practice.
- Recognising and expressing thoughts and emotions
- Creative and mindfulness exercises
- Breathing and de-stressing techniques
The tools and techniques we teach can be applied immediately to generate a measurable impact on health and happiness. We suggest partnering with one of our mental health specialists to incorporate therapeutic and educational elements throughout the retreat.
We also offer pre and post-retreat workshops and remote sessions to help align minsets, improve integration and provide additional support.
