Updated: Jan 28
As wellness continues to evolve, FitPros is dedicated to providing you with new and relevant topics and activities for your employees. Find out what’s new this month:
The Current State of COVID: From Pandemic to Vaccine
As the COVID pandemic is evolving quickly, healthcare is struggling to keep pace. Please join us for a brief review of the current state of COVID and a discussion on the vaccines currently being dispensed, as well as a few of the newer vaccines currently under development. We will cover what is known about the efficacy of the vaccines---as well as how well they have been tolerated (side effects)---and talk through the Emergency Use Authorization process that was undertaken to expedite execution of this important countermeasure to this global public health crisis.
Managing Triggers and Loving Well: Strengthening Relationships With Self and Others
Do you find yourself reacting, internalizing, lashing out, or avoiding when it comes to the difficult (and important) conversations in life? This workshop is designed to help you better understand yourself so you can communicate more effectively with others. We’ll talk about automatic thoughts, the importance of language, and how to use mindfulness as a means to choose more skillful ways of communicating with yourself and others.
Addressing the Big Black Elephant in the Room: How to have more comfortable critical conversations
Comedians have the uncanny ability to say what everyone is thinking and even discuss controversial topics with ease. Over the past decade, stand-up audiences have remained receptive and open-minded to this refreshingly funny yet thought-provoking brand of comedy. In this workshop, the FitPro will share tips and techniques to empower you to have more comfortable critical conversations by improving your listening skills during difficult conversations or conflicts, as well as learn how to assess your motives, find commonalities, and confront with care.
Make Yourself at Home… Not Really: How to improve engagement in your teams
Most diversity presentations leave the majority group feeling enlightened or guilty, while the minority group is left feeling empty or vindicated.
Why do some members of your team immediately feel right at home and seen, while others feel like guests in someone else’s home and invisible? Would all the members of your team feel comfortable joining you in a foxhole? Research shows that engagement is a key factor that promotes high performance in organizations. During this health talk, you will learn how to assess employee engagement levels, understand cultural and social differences exist, and explore components for successful engagement initiatives.
Pivoting to Advocacy: How to speak up and create safe and inclusive environments
You are enlightened, but now what? We all have some type of privilege, but are we using it to advocate for others without that privilege? Get skills and techniques to cultivate inclusivity. During this health talk, you will learn how to recognize that everyone has some type of privilege, learn the language of cultural competency, and be empowered to confront injustices.
