Create an Environment that Inspires Collaboration

with featured speaker, Jason Horay, MS, CHES

Wednesday, October 27 | 2:00 PM-3:30 PM

Session Description:

One of the most important steps leaders can take towards intentional rebuilding for professional fulfillment is to get to know themselves. For that reason, participants will explore their character strengths and how to capitalize on their employees’ core strengths using the SEA (S – Spot/label the strength, E – Explain by giving a short rationale of the behavior you observed, A – Appreciate or recognize the value of the person for their strengths).
Through individual reflection alongside virtual group discussions, participants will reflect on their health and well-being, leadership style, the leader they want to be, and how to fill in the gaps. Participants will communicate workshop findings by completing a roadmap for leaders interested in building a collaborative culture that actively support employee well-being.
The group will engage in authentic discussions and a facilitated role play around the challenges of effective collaboration, learning how to foster safe and supportive relationships among leaders, colleagues and employees. Participants will also have an opportunity to network with fellow colleagues to share success stories and challenges focusing on collaboration and meaningful connections that drive well-being and build a thriving workplace. 

Learning Objectives: 

  1. Identify the organizational foundations that foster collaboration and meaning in work. 
  2. Understand your character strengths in order to maintain an adaptive leadership response in times of stress, adversity and change.
  3. Learn the benefits of collaboration in the workplace, including employee engagement and productivity. 
  4. Develop an action plan to apply learnings in order to take steps toward intentional rebuilding for professional and organizational fulfillment
