You can build capacity, minimize stress, boost energy and enhance performance by mastering the art of renewal in work and life.

Introduction & Background:

Today’s super-sized demands and supersonic pace take a heavy toll. Overloading drains energy, saps productivity, cripples capacity, and poisons relationships. 

Fatigued and disengaged employees erode an organization’s bottom line while breaking the spirits of colleagues in the process. The Canadian HR Centre estimates this costs the North American economy more than $350 billion annually in lost productivity alone.

Strike the right balance and you reduce the impact of overload and overwhelm while increasing productivity and engagement. Rightloading™ engages minds, encourages hearts, energizes bodies, and builds spirit.

 Lead the way in your organization. Balance that relentless press for performance with strategic pauses for renewal. Make smarter choices about how you and your people carry and control the load.

Who Should Attend?

Being a positive presence in the lives of others while renewing and maintaining energy is an opportunity for every individual in the workplace from the frontline employee to the CEO.

This program is for you if you’re concerned about issues like these: overload, overwhelm, resilience, work- life harmony, stress, wellness, well-being, productivity, energy management, renewal.

Key Learning Objectives:

These essentials will be covered in detail during the program:

  • The Business Case For Renewal – why it matters and how rightloading is a shared responsibility
  • Rebalancing The Load  - re-energize by partnering strategic pauses with consistent investments in the key arenas of renewal
  • Resetting The Load  – create more manageable expectations by getting real about capacity, sharing and delegating work with respect, cultivating the progress principle, taming technology, and springing the acceleration trap that keeps everyone spinning.
