Why Self-Care?

self-care \ˌself-ˈker\  n. – The practice of taking an active role in protecting one’s own well-being and happiness, in particular during times of stress.

Considerations: The Current Reality

The tumultuous, foundation-shifting events of the last few months have intensified the experience of stress and uncertainty, revealing our globally shared connection and individual and collective vulnerability. As we enter a new year following months of unprecedented and tremendous upheaval and unrelenting uncertainty, the invitation of these offerings is to deepen in the intentional and skillful self-care called for in these times. It also happens to be the most transformational and singularly impacting investment companies can make in their leaders and companies in these times.

Why Self-Care? Why Now?

Offering these life and work-changing practices of care to your teams is the most profound investment leaders can make in these times for themselves and for individuals at every level in the organization. 

The benefits of self-compassion are seen in the most innovative, resilient and courageous leaders, underpinning emotional intelligence, resilience, growth mindset, integrity and a sense of deepened humanity in teams. Practicing self-compassion in a group cohort  dramatically increases the benefits by giving common language to teams to promote a shared sense of humanity, psychological safety and mindfulness at work. An exploding canon of research supports the integrated practices of bringing self-care and compassion into the workplace has a direct return on investment as it creates cultures with increased contribution and innovation, employee wellness, creativity, enhanced decision making and problem-solving as well as attracting and retaining top talent and decreasing attrition–all factors that directly impact the bottom line. Most meaningfully, these practices infuse teams and organizations with a deepened sense of humanity, (re-) discovery of joy, play and gratitude and the connective tissue that enables organizations to be vibrant even and especially during times of turbulence and change.
