Leaders have done an incredible job of keeping their teams together and meeting objectives in a climate of constant uncertainty.
And now, as we face new challenges in the workplace, leaders must find additional strength to help staff with their mental and physical health, deal with absenteeism, improve retention, enhance collaboration, and find hybrid or remote solutions that work for everyone–often within a workplace culture that doesn’t prioritize wellbeing.
Leaders often have additional stressors outside of work as they care for children and/or aging parents while dealing with their own personal health challenges.
Organizations that do not support the wellbeing of their leadership team and middle management while asking them to take on more responsibility, run the risk of losing this critical pool of talent and critical knowledge.
Neolé’s leadership development programs incorporate principles of human-centered leadership, creative problem solving and wellbeing, and teach a participatory approach to leadership. We show leaders and organizations how to create workplace cultures focused on wellbeing, leading to higher engagement, collaboration, retention and happiness–workplaces that people are proud to be a part of!
We customize our workshops to your unique situation and the needs of your team and organization. During the free consultation, we will ask you about your organization and team, and your best hopes for the type of transformation your leadership team would benefit from.
Leaders–it’s time to put your oxygen mask on first!
Yes, it’s a cliche, but there’s a reason we keep coming back to this analogy: being there for others works best when we take care of ourselves first.
As a leader you are probably very good at managing a lot of responsibilities (not just at work but also in your personal life). You are always taking care of people (not just your team and your bosses, but maybe also your kids and your aging parents), you also take care of projects, budgets and all sorts of other things. But how often do you stop to take good care of yourself? Is that even possible when you have so much on your plate? And what’s the consequence if you don’t make health and wellness a priority? And what about your team’s health and wellness?
Your amazing team is important to you. And, you are important to them! They are looking to you for answers, direction and support, both personally and professionally.
For this, you need to be at the top of your game!
A high-performing team is one that is excited to contribute, does their best work and loves their work! When you trust your team to be high performing you can sleep better at night. Two things are needed for this: individual commitment to wellbeing and workplace commitment to wellbeing. It all begins with you setting a positive example by giving top priority to your own wellbeing.
But where to start when you already have so many responsibilities on your plate?
UPWELL: How to Take Care of Your Wellbeing as a Leader AND Create a Healthy Workplace Culture for Your Team is a one-hour interactive session, expertly facilitated by Neolé’s CEO, Ginny Santos, to get you building the individual habits and practices that elevate your own wellbeing.
Leading for Collaboration is for managers and leaders who need smart, diverse people to collaborate within or across teams, but find it difficult and painfully time-consuming to get everyone on the same page and collaborate effectively towards a common goal.
During this workshop, we explore how to lead effective collaboration and how to be an outstanding contributor to collaborative initiatives/projects. This training gives participants the awareness, process and tools they need to lead effective collaborations that engage the right people at the right time, move everyone along at an equal pace, and reach the finish line as a whole and better team. Whether you are a team leader or a member of a loose collaboration, you will leave this training with a deep understanding of your team’s strengths and blind spots, and what’s required for successful collaboration to take place.
This course includes the FourSight self-assessment and Team Report.*
Organizations need leaders who are sharp, emotionally intelligent, able to focus and make sound decisions under pressure. They need leaders who are present and available for their teams.
The performance of your leaders suffers when they struggle with brain fog, unreliable memory, mood swings, the mid-afternoon slump, headaches, joint pain and overwhelm when faced with increased stress or added complexities. It’s like having a computer freeze in the middle of a 40-page report or a website that’s painfully slow to load – a computer that needs maintenance… Well, like computers, brains need maintenance too!
How to Stay Smart is a brain maintenance program that teaches leaders how to focus and concentrate, minimize headaches and brain fog, remain calm when under stress, and feel at their best throughout the work day. How to Stay Smart teaches leaders how to maintain and optimize their cognitive health, and provides the tools, knowledge and habits to ensure they are always at their best.
It’s never too late to give your brain what it needs to function at its best.
Poor work boundaries can lead to burnout, and burnout has a ripple effect on both the team and the organization – increasing the amount of sick days, turnover, and overall stress. It’s time to set some healthy work life boundaries!
This solution-focused workshop is for leaders and their teams who want to be brave about setting work boundaries while improving performance, efficiency and high quality work. Engage in important conversations with your team about work life boundaries, and identify practical ways to support and sustain high performance. Come prepared to share the challenges you are dealing with, and to brainstorm ideas in collaboration with your team. Includes a customized report of your team’s ideas and strategies.
UPWELL for Leaders is a cohort-based, 3-month program for middle managers and leaders that improves participant wellbeing across six metrics and demonstrates how to build a workplace culture that prioritizes wellbeing. In addition, participants learn the critical human-centric leadership skills teams are looking for in their leaders.
Participants engage in weekly 1-hour interactive workshops, supported by professional leadership coaching and group debriefs.
Leaders can enroll as a team from one organization or join a cohort of leaders who move through the program together, building connections and supporting each other every step of the way.
Just as we are told to put our oxygen masks on first before helping others, UPWELL for Leaders maximizes the wellbeing of your leaders, preparing them to take on the challenges of the new workplace.
UPWELL programs for leadership teams are customized to your specific needs, which we establish via interviews with participants.
Our training can be delivered in a virtual, in-person or hybrid format.
Our Leadership Development Programs can be structured to meet your unique needs from 2-hour training sessions to multi-day leadership retreats. Explore our Team Development courses, and consider combining courses for additional impact. Whatever the format, we ensure participation, engagement and success!
