Your day to day wellbeing and resilience at work is something we care about! We want to actively support and serve you in ways that will help you not just survive the week and make it to the weekend but actually Thrive @Work!
The focus of the business matters programme last year was so well received we have good news – there is more coming in 2017 on the theme of Thrive!
Thriving is associated with resilience and vitality – that positive feeling of having energy available to deliver your best and a sense that you are supported, learning and acquiring the knowledge and skills that help you perform to your best. In turn, finding satisfaction in your contribution and role at work helps build that all important resilience in stressful times and can help you not burn out.
A few of years ago, the influential Arianna Huffington, co-founder and editor-in-chief of the Huffington Post, wrote a book: “Thrive: The Third Metric to Redefining Success and Creating a Life of Well-Being, Wisdom, and Wonder.” It is a passionate call to arms, looking to redefine what it means to be successful in today’s world.
She writes, “As more and more people are coming to realize, there is far more to living a truly successful life than just earning a bigger salary. Our relentless pursuit of the two traditional metrics of success – money and power – has led to an epidemic of burnout and stress-related illnesses, and an erosion in the quality of our relationships, family life, and, ironically, our careers. In being connected to the world 24/7, we’re losing our connection to what truly matters.”
Because business matters, work matters and you matter our programme of events is tailored to promote personal and professional development and foster wellbeing through being part of a growing and thriving community and network across the city!
We look forward to welcoming you to one of our events in 2017!
