Be Well Be Safe Week at U of G celebrates National Mental Health Week and North American Occupational Safety and Health Week. See the full calendar of events brought to you by Wellness@Work.
Making mistakes and experiencing failure are more common than we think, and part of the reality of work, especially during a pandemic. In this hands-on workshop, we will use the phenomenon of failure to frame negative experiences and focus on dealing with mistakes in the workplace. We will discuss how we define failure, how we react to it, as well as some tangible strategies to help manage our experiences with failure (and other distressing situations) and the inner critic. We will cover concepts like resilience, self-compassion, thought traps and re-storying our experiences, among many others. There will be opportunities to share experiences and time to reflect.
