Code: BH/22/1063 Managers Network: Grief in the workplace

Manager Network: 21st September, 10:00-12:00:  Grief in the Workplace 

Hosted & curated by your peers, with guest speaker Lizzie Pickering.

Our speaker Lizzie is a grief investigator, film and podcast producer, sharing her own grief story and how she learned to live well alongside her loss, navigating a new landscape and accommodating it in her life. With 21 years of experience investigating her own grief and the grief of others, she shares her toolkit, ways of not only surviving but living well.  This session is for anyone going through, or supporting their colleagues through bereavement, divorce, diagnosis and workplace change – any major life changes resulting in loss. And as many of us grieve our loss of freedom as a result of the pandemic, this session provides hope and positive suggestions to move forward.

This session will be recorded.  If you have any questions that you would like to ask & submit anonymously, please email any questions to: learning@brighton-hove.gov.uk

The Manager Network meetings are online sessions, lasting up to 120 minutes; introduced and facilitated by your management peers. Each standalone session covers a different topic relevant to managers to help you develop and offer a chance to get together, albeit virtually.

It's a great chance to get away from emails and day to day work to reflect on your own management practice.

All managers (and aspiring managers) are welcome, and you don’t need to have attended any of the previous sessions to be able to come to this one.

Code: BH/22/0651 Overcoming Overwhelm online - 2 sessions (Zoom) (EVENT FULL)



Overwhelm – a personal plan


What is overwhelm and what causes it?

Being overwhelmed occurs when there is too much of something going on – we feel
like we’re drowning or being buried.

This can happen for a number of reasons, but a feeling of too many things to do, too
much work, too much work pressure and too many deadlines can be a major
contributor.

Feeling overwhelmed has repercussions on the whole of our life. It can make us feel
tired, interfere with our sleep and make it difficult for us to think rationally. These
negative emotions can make it more difficult for your body to fight off infections and
can have a physical effect with fatigue, neck and upper-back pain, for example.
Add all this together and it can affect every area of life, impacting our social lives and
relationships on top of the work challenges.

All these feelings distract us from being effective and efficient and that, in turn, leads
to lowered ‘performance’ and sets up a vicious cycle dragging us further down.
This can lead to procrastination (making things worse!) and creative avoidance –
doing things that don’t really matter to distract ourselves or things that give us
pleasure, putting off the real work further.

Online sessions via zoom of two x 2 hours (you will need to attend both sessions)

This four hour session offers a practical and experiential opportunity to understand,
appreciate and acknowledge that different situations trigger people in different ways.

What one person will find ‘easy’ another may find ‘challenging’ and adding to levels
of stress.

Once we have an understanding of our personal ‘triggers’ we are then in a better
position to find the solutions to manage our stress, our workloads, and find effective
ways that enable us to feel more ‘in control’.
