Passion Isn't Enough: Bringing Meaning, Purpose, and Life-long Satisfaction To Your Career

The mantras of yesteryears advised us to "follow our passions" and "believe in yourself." After all if you do that, anything is possible right? While not incorrect, that message is incomplete. Passion isn't enough. In these transitional and highly disruptive economic times, we need more than that. We need to be savvy, and much more self-aware. Taking into account the unique and dynamic circumstances of people across generations (Millennials - stability seeking, Generation Xers- flexibility seeking, and Baby Boomers - pleasure seeking), Natasha will help participants learn powerful lessons on how to bring meaning, purpose, and satisfaction into their working lives. Topics covered include:

  • Finding your "Sweet Spot" - The 4 P's of discovering your best work self
  • The big secret behind "Confidence"
  • Critical factors for career success and satisfaction
  • The importance of diversification in your career

 

Mental Health Is Everyone's Business: De-stigmatizing And Taking Initiative In The Workplace

1 in 5 Canadians will experience a mental health issue at some point in their lifetime. And 5 out of 5 Canadians will be indirectly affected by mental health issues in their lifetime. Mental health difficulties account for 30% of short and long-term disability claims in the workplace, and are the root of almost 50% of approved disability claims. In total, they account for over $50 billion in annual costs, $20 billion of which is due to lost productivity in the workplace. Not to mention the significant personal impact to individuals and society as a whole. Clearly, mental health is everyone's business. In this dynamic, high content, and extremely valuable presentation, Natasha will help participants understand the current and alarming facts regarding mental health in the workplace, and how companies can prevent, support, and ultimately best cope with workplace mental health concerns. People at all levels can benefit from this presentation: Leaders, executives, managers, employees, and administrators. Topics covered include:

  • Mental Health vs. Mental Illness (Yes, there is a difference)
  • Are we all getting sicker? (What is behind the rise in mental illness)
  • Critical factors that undermine employee wellness
  • What people/organizations can do to promote health/wellness in the workplace
