The H.O.P.E. Workshop: An Innovative Approach to Healing in the Workplace

Thursday, December 5, 2019 • 7:30-9:30 a.m • Overland Park Convention Center

A recent study indicates that in the United States, 61% of men and 51% of women report experiencing at least one traumatic event in their lifetime*. In this particular study, “individual trauma was defined as resulting from an event, series of events, or set of circumstances experienced by an individual as physically or emotionally harmful or life-threatening with lasting adverse effects on the individual’s functioning and mental, physical, social, emotional or spiritual well-being.” Examples of trauma often include the death of a loved one, divorce, disability, illness, addiction, financial loss, family stressors, and more.

How should a company, a CEO, a supervisor, and an employee manage their workday, once affected by a trauma?

Presented by Workplace Healing LLC Co-Founders, Mindy Corporon and Lisa Cooper, the H.O.P.E. Workshop offers education, interactive activities, and guidelines for managers and supervisors regarding the do’s and don’ts with an employee returning to work after a trauma or life disruption.

Key concepts covered include:

  • Attendees will learn how to interact with an employee affected by a trauma/life disruption
  • Attendees will practice ABLETM conversation skills for uncomfortable grief/trauma related conversations
  • Attendees will obtain working knowledge and practical tools to support the re-integration of an employee into the workplace
  • Recognizing the significance of purpose in today’s talent recruitment and employee retention needs, attendees will experience a personal reflection on finding their own purpose and receive tips for how to duplicate that experience with their employees
  • Attendees will create an Employee/Employer Engagement Plan for immediate implementation
  • Attendees will gain confidence in knowing that their business can prosper after a trauma affects a team member

The H.O.P.E. Workshop four training modules include:
 – Heart-Based Healing
O – Opportunities for Healing
P – Personalized Purpose
E – Employee/Employer Engagement
