Join us for our first Culture Elevation Series workshop of 2024 with humanworks8!
There’s something missing from the mental health conversation in our workplaces, and it has to do with how we understand one another. We tend to see people in terms of their cognitive traits (their knowledge and experience) as well as their affective qualities (their emotions and beliefs), but that only accounts for two parts of a person’s mind. There’s another way to understand people and it’s completely separate from how we think or what we feel – there’s a third part of our minds.
This session will introduce attendees to the conative part of the mind, the innate drive within all of us to take action and solve problems in our own unique way. This session will illustrate the importance of conation in the workplace mental health conversation and answer the question, “Why do people need to be free to do things their way?” (And what happens when they are not?)
Explore the implications of understanding all three parts of the mind, and how that understanding can be used by managers and employees to reduce stress and burnout, strengthen relationships, and foster stronger mental health practices in the workplace.
