Making Every Contact Count Healthy Conversation Skills
Making Every Contact Counts - Healthy Conversation Skills (MECC HCS) is an approach that uses the millions of day-to-day interactions that organisations and individuals have with people to support them in making positive changes to their health and wellbeing, by using open discovery questions and active listening skills. MECC HCS is about enhancing the conversations we are already having with individuals. It's not about adding to already busy workloads.
The course is divided into two ½ day sessions set a week apart alongside four
e- learning modules to be completed before session two. Both sessions and elearning must be completed to gain the accredited Royal Society for Public Health certificate.
The workplace can be rich with opportunity. It's a place where we can learn and grow, develop and contribute, build our careers, earn our living and provide for our family. It can also be challenging, demanding and exhausting.
Everyone has to cope with the stresses and strains of work and everyday life. Challenges and change are a constant for all of us. Some of these involve taking some degree of risk, while some may be crises or emergencies that demand our immediate attention.
You will have developed coping mechanisms during your life that help you deal with familiar adverse situations and many unfamiliar ones. Some of your coping mechanisms however, aren't so effective and can even make situations worse.
What separates those who can hold their own and keep going in times of adversity is a cluster of habits that centre on resilience. This workshop will explore what resilience is and the habits that strengthen your resilience enabling you to:
• Deal with pressure and handle stress
• Maintain your motivation and engagement
• Develop and sustain self-esteem
• Bounce back from set-backs and disappointments
• Transform your work life
N.B. There is a Resilience & Wellbeing module on the Intranet featuring videos and downloadable resources.Essential Information
