  • Promoting Positive Interactions in the Workplace  Wednesday, September 7: 11:00-11:45
  • During times of increased stress, we can experience tension and conflict in our interactions with others. When our patience is weakened due to stress, we are more easily frustrated, and our choice of words/body language may not be the best. This session focuses on increasing our understanding of stress, recognizing how we can be more positive in the workplace, and provides tips on increasing our communication skills.

  • Prioritizing Self-Care and Stress Management Wednesday, October 5: 11:00-11:45
  • It is important to actively practice self-care with stress management techniques during changing and stressful times, but we do not always do so. This webinar will help you understand the importance of prioritizing self-care, gain insight into what gets in the way of self-prioritization, provide a simple approach to stress management planning, and highlight available resources.

  • Work/Life Balance Wednesday, November 2: 11:00 – 11:45
  • Do you ever feel overwhelmed with managing day-to-day responsibilities and expectations? Many employees find it challenging to balance work and family while taking care of their own needs. When we are balanced, we tend to be happier, healthier, and more productive in all areas. Whether you are working from home, hybrid, or in the office it is important to explore ways to find balance. This webinar offers employees helpful insight, tools, and creative strategies for achieving greater work life balance.
