Moving Past The Stifling Emotions of Guilt

Perfect if you are searching for resources to enhance mental health for clients and employees.

Speaker: Colleen H. Cole

Mental Health and Wellness

Women tend to wear a mask and pretend everything is alright, but they are screaming inside, never feeling like they are being true to themselves. They want to break free from guilt, overwhelm, and mediocrity and finally have the best health, wealth and relationships. They want to learn how to deliver on the promises they make to themselves to live a significant life.

  • Discover how you make an impact beyond your own life that will bring fulfillment and well-being to your life

 Developing Your  Front line "Fire-fighting" Employees
Time: 9:00 am - 10:00 am  (CST) 

Perfect if you are searching for resources to enhance employee interpersonal skills

Speaker: Pam Tracey

Interpersonal Wellness

The real importance of supporting your front line house ‘fire-fighting’ employees and how investing in their emotional thinking will create a new culture of acceptance, value and fulfillment. Sometimes they are the lowest paid, but they are the face of our businesses.

When we invest and train them to enhance their thinking patterns, we create an awareness platform, bringing inclusion, cultural change and emotional wellness to the forefront of all organizations for all their employees. This ultimately will transfer from the work place into their daily lives and society.


  • Understanding the front line ‘fire-fighter’ employee mentality
  • Why investing in their ‘thinking behavior’ brings benefits to all involved.
  • Seeing what emerges when we truly support and invest in these employees

  • Stay motivated and joyful in the work you do everyday
  • Overcome roadblocks no matter what challenge presents itself
  • Create a roadmap to success that is fun and easy for you to follow

 Time: 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm  (CST) 

Perfect if you want to improve resilience and help rebuild your team or workplace

Speaker: Charmaine Hammond

Resilience and Wellness

Disasters, man made and natural can happen in communities and workplaces. While many organizations have policies, practices and preparedness protocols; it is the recovery and resilience building that many organizations are not prepared for. This topic will help attendees think about resilience, recovery and compassion fatigue in a new way

  • Foster resilience as foundation of the culture in a team
  • Build a post disaster resilience and recovery plan
  • Reduce compassion fatigue and increase wellness after disasters

Employee Wellness and Resilience Program:

 Resilience that goes beyond the 1 day Workshop

Time: 3:30 pm -4:30 pm (CST)

Perfect if you want a systematized resilience building process that lasts

Speaker: Joyce Odidison, MA, PCC, CTDP.

Health and Wellness

While a one day workshop is great to remind employees of the meaning and value of resilience, some employers are going beyond that to offering their employees a resilience building process.
Learn how this process works with employees, their feedback, their results, their progress, their successes and the benefit that their organizations gained from this process.

  • Understand the steps of the employee resilience process
  • Learn about the commitment level of all employees
  • Hear the employees feedback and learn how it works, the time frame and what to expect in such a program.

Building a Resilient Team Culture

Time 6:30 pm -7:30 pm (CST)

Perfect if you are searching for resources to enhance mental health for clients and employees.

Speaker: Kathryn McEwen

While we all need to take personal accountability for investing in our well-being, the culture within our work teams and the actions of leadership can foster or detract from our efforts. Learn from this evidence-based framework, the Resilience at Work (R@W) Toolkit, being used in research and practice internationally to build team cultures that support sustainable performance in challenging jobs.

  • Participants will gain a practical roadmap for taking a systemic approach to building resilience within teams and organisations

Perfect if you want to empower employees and clients to take their fitness to the next level

Speaker: Jaimi Jansen, Fitness and Wellness Expert, Business Coach
