We offer programs via AIM for Organizational Health that incorporate mindfulness tools that enable employees to decrease stress and reduce team conflict.

We also provide:

  • Improved self-management and personal state management to manage stress and enhance relationships
  • Reduced reactivity and enhanced communication when in conflicts, with particular attention to situations of actual or perceived bias and micro-aggressions
  • The skills to provide high impact feedback that enhances motivation and increases retention
  • Team cohesion by learning how to value diverse perspectives and create a trusting and inclusive atmosphere

  • leverage the strengths of employees from each generation to create more productive teams

This program is often provided in collaboration with diversity and inclusion trainer, Lillan Tsai, to  assist employees to improve relationships across generations and cultures.

STRENGTHS-BASED LEADERSHIP/STRENGTHS-BASED TEAM BUILDING

To compliment this work, a workshop for employees to understand their StrengthsFinder results can maximize team effectiveness and enhance the relationship between the employee and manager.
