If there is anything the Covid crisis has taught us it’s that “EQ”– Emotional Intelligence – is rapidly surpassing “IQ” as the criteria for success as a leader. And now, leaders have one more responsibility on their job description: mental health.

Who better to rise to the occasion of the leadership we need now, than women?

Empathy, compassion, vulnerability, courage, communication, humility, positivity, listening, balance and even the ability to practice self-care – are just some of the skills that are clearly needed moving forward. And these are only some of the skills that women bring to the workplace!

Our brains are structured differently and help us see more holistically. Our intuition, especially when nurtured, helps us respond rather than react. We naturally are better at managing multiple priorities and excel in managing diverse needs of different personalities!

Emotions are at the fundamental core of motivation, they direct and prioritize what we do and where we put our energy. Emotions are contagious, and women have the ability to create powerful positive emotional contagions at work!

It’s time to energize, elevate and empower our people to rise to the challenges of reimagining life after crisis. What better tools to use than the evidence based practices that have emerged from the “Science of Happiness”?

The virtual environment for employees and teams is transforming the way people are currently working. There are higher levels of stress, uncertainty, and anxiety for the entire population. Leaders who have always led teams in person now need to pivot and lead from a distance. The number one predictor of happiness is human connection and this is imperative as everyone is working from their homes. Happy employees make their customers happy & when customers are happy, the company is successful. In a 2015 Happiness & Productivity study from The University of Warwick, research demonstrated that happy employees are 10%-12% more productive than unhappy employees. Harvard’s Shawn Achor writes, “People who cultivate a positive mind-set perform better in the face of challenge. This is the “happiness advantage”—every business outcome shows improvement when the brain is positive.”

This webinar is for leaders, teams and employees of organizations who are interested in tangible ways to increase happiness while working virtually. Attendees will walk away with a toolkit that they can implement immediately. Attendees will learn and practice evidence-based behaviors and exercises around both results and relationships. The webinar will allow for group interaction and questions. The webinar will be led by Tia Graham, Founder of Arrive At Happy. Graham partners with organizations to teach happiness and transform cultures through workshops, retreats, keynote talks and culture work. She has a Certificate in Happiness Studies & a Certificate in Facilitating Happiness from Harvard’s Tal Ben-Shahar and is a Chief Happiness Officer Certificate. Tia is also a Certified coach with the International Coaching Federation.

Mattering consists of feeling valued and adding value. We can feel valued by ourselves and others, and we can add value to ourselves and others. We all need to get and give support during the COVID-19 pandemic to improve our own health and the well-being of others. Each one of us copes differently with the current crisis, and this is why it’s important to develop a toolkit that suits different situations and different personalities. In this session we cover strategies for mattering at the personal, interpersonal, occupational, and communal levels.
