Corporate mental health workshops

Your people are your greatest asset. When they engaged and connected, they drive results for you.

However, when they are unengaged, they may pull away, put forth low effort, and sacrifice efficiency. As a therapist, I know that one of the biggest stressors my clients face is in their workplace.

I also know a few things first-hand from six years of working in corporate finance in New York City:

  • When employees are connected to their teams, they reach out for help when needed
  • Managers who support their teams have employees that are motivated to work hard for them
  • The way managers speak to employees about important info impacts how safe they feel at work
  • Lack of security and connection at work lead to low engagement

The good news is, there are tools to address these issues and create engaged, connected, + productive workplaces. I’m here to help!

Unsatisfied employees is a problem that will catch up to an organization if not handled properly. It’s not one that can be simply ignored.

Key issues facing organizations and their people that transfer to the bottom line include:

  • Engagement and retention
  • Conflict and resolution
  • Employee mental health and stress
  • Ineffective leadership

Research shows that low engagement and retention are top human resources issues facing organizations.

These problems translate to significant replacement costs (often 10-50% salary increases). In addition, time and financial resources are required to train new employees. Every time an employee leaves an organization, the ones who stayed are left with questions and a shift in the environment.

Corporate mental health workshops are a chance to face these issues head-on and create an environment that fosters engagement, resolution, creativity, motivation, and productivity.

why a therapist?

At the core, couples therapists are process consultants to break down and improve communication patterns between two individuals.

As part of this work, we are trained to think critically and systemically about the ongoing patterns and to communicate with clients in a way that generates they change they are hoping for. We’re experts on relationships, communication, and information processing.

The root cause of people issues in organizations are similar to those in couples or family members in therapy: miscommunication, ineffective communication, inability to manage difficult conversations, and a lack of security and trust.

workshop focus area

Our corporate mental health workshops focus on creating a healthy environment by focusing on relationships.

Many therapeutic principles about relationships between close individuals are applicable to relationships in the workplace. Most notably, we focus on the relationship between managers and their employees, as well as with their team overall.

A secure, reliable relationship with a manager mitigates the risk of many people-related problems in organizations. Managers have significant agency in creating an environment that leaves their employees feeling motivated and productive.

However, understanding the communication mechanisms necessary to reach this kind of workplace is not always intuitive. That’s where we come in.

workshop format + goals

Due to the impact of manager-employee relationships on retention, employee satisfaction, and engagement, we focus on this relationship.

To that end, our workshops are structured to include manager-level employees and above. In these sessions, managers will learn:

  • The basic tenants of attachment theory + its workplace implications
  • Key components of relationships to build with employees
  • How to navigate difficult conversations without decreasing engagement
  • How to structure engagement initiatives that will actually have impact
  • About resolving conflict between teams and with employees
  • Managing stress as a team

These workshops offer organizations an opportunity to apply cutting-edge psychological principles into their teams and professional relationships.

Grounded in this knowledge, managers are set up for greater success in engaging with their teams and driving the results that matter.

At work or at home, the health of our relationships reflects the health of our own mind and body. When relationships feel good at work, they feel better at home, and vice versa.

Let’s work together to create healthy, effective workspaces.
