Healthcare Leadership and Mindfulness Webinar
Dr. Daniel Skarlicki of UBC's Sauder School of Business joined MindWell-U on June 27 for a live, interactive discussion about the critical role mindfulness plays in supporting today's healthcare leaders. Below are the resources we're making available to all those who registered for the webinar. We hope you enjoy!
Tune in to this Q&A style webinar to watch Dr. Skarlicki share key insights on:
- Keeping our own ‘gas tanks full’
- Importance of mindfulness for healthcare practitioners - it's definitely not just for patients anymore
- Key findings such as self compassion and resilience from a number of research studies on mindfulness within a healthcare context.
30 Day Mindfulness Challenge
We're pleased to invite you to trial the 30 Day Mindfulness Challenge as our guest starting on Monday, July 10 (not to worry, you can take the training on your smart phone from a beach or lake or mountaintop if you're so fortunate!). In addition to being all online and only five minutes a day, the Challenge is used in healthcare settings because it's evidence-based and shown among other things to significantly reduce stress, increase resilience and improve performance. Everyone who takes the training gets to do so with a buddy of their choice as the buddy system is proven to increase engagement and completion.
