About the Training
Stress in the workplace contributes to chronic negativity, to illness, to missed days of work and decrease of productivity, conflict and most often, burnout. Stress and burnout also contributes to high staff turn over which interrupts service delivery, project management and wellness in the workplace. This three-day interactive training will help participants understand concepts of workplace wellness by understanding individual and collective wellness, how to build a solid team with trust, how to be trauma-informed, communication and conflict resolution skills and learn more about stress reduction as a tool for burnout prevention. Hands-on activities utilizing the training room and the outdoors will be utilized. Participants will leave with training curriculum as well as numerous tools to take back to the workplace to implement.
A day-long field trip will be included to the Indigenous Wellness Institute, a Native Hawaiian, culture and land-based program serving Native Hawaiian youth. This hands-on day will be led by staff and helpers of the Indigenous Wellness Institute.
