For a long time we’ve known about the impact and importance of making connections with people around us. Whether shy or outgoing, introvert or extrovert, having those in our lives we can open up to is one of the biggest indicators of wellbeing. During Covid and other worldwide challenges, we’ve seen people realising this even more… and yet new challenges and obstacles to making those connections have emerged. In this session we will look at the evidence behind why connecting is important, explore ways of making the most of our connections (it’s quality over quantity) and use the session itself as a way of getting the conversation started. We all prefer to connect in different ways, so please be assured that I will do my best to ensure that the session is run in a way which suits those who are naturally more outgoing, those who prefer to sit and listen, and those in-between! PROGRAMME AGENDA: • Connection – what is it and why is it such a powerful indicator of mental health and wellbeing? • Barriers to Connection • Introverts and Extroverts: myths and realities • Exploring the Psychology of loneliness – why is it a key issue and a growing problem in today’s workplaces? What does the research say? • The power of genuine listening • Tools and techniques to connect, whatever our preferred style A second 1hr follow up workshop is available which explores these concepts in more depth and also looks at Emotional Intelligence and the research and evidence of Mindfulness, Compassion and Self-Compassion within the topic of ‘Connecting’. Each workshop will have a take away document too.

  1. Will all employees be able to book programmes on the GetZeN platform?

    Bookings can only be made via allocated and registered contacts who can log in to their profile.

  2. Are individuals' names shared with the employee diagnostic outcomes?

    All names are anonymised and confidential. The diagnostic will only show the overall outcomes relating to anxiety, stress, energy, sense of wellbeing & productivity.

  3. Can we get in touch if we can’t find the programme we need?

    Of course, we work closely with all of our clients to find the right practitioner and programme to suit your needs.

  4. Do you have a library of pre-recorded content we can access?

    Not yet, that’s something we’re working on behind the scenes.

  5. Can I meet with the practitioner before the programme takes place?

    We go through an extremely thorough vetting process with all of our practitioners, so you can rest assured that they will be of the highest standard for your organisation. However, as we first start to work with clients we can organise a 10min introduction with our practitioners.

  6. How often will we receive the GetZeN diagnostic outcomes?

    For those who take part in the end to end GetZeN diagnostic, we will report quarterly. However, we are working towards a way where we can integrate this into your client profile so you can see the outcomes weekly.

    We can do this, please get in touch to find out more.
