Growth: Be challenged to use and expand on your strengths
Last week I had the wonderful opportunity to present at the WASPA (Wisconsin Association of School Personnel Administrators) Conference. As we explored the expanding scope and definition of wellbeing, we looked at WELCOA's definition of wellness. Successful workplace wellness initiatives require supporting employees in fulfilling their needs in seven areas. I asked them to look at these seven areas and pick one area that they want to connect more explicitly to their wellness initiative. During our group share, many people identified and expressed GROWTH as something their school wants and needs more of when it comes to their wellness initiative.
GROWTH: Feeling like you are progressing in your career. Learning and being challenged to use and expand on your strengths.
Every person has wellness aspirations including wellbeing practitioners. In an effort to support the growth of wellbeing practitioners across the state and more explicitly connect it to organizational wellness; we've expanded our learning opportunities to be inclusive of opportunities and conversation around growth. If GROWTH is an area of focus for you this year-we want to meet you there! Take a look at the opportunities that provide you the space and time for growth!
