Self-Compassion is a hidden factor in an employee's ability to provide sustainable high performance in their work and personal lives.

Based on the research of Dr. Kristin Neff and Dr. Brené Brown, this course will provide an overview of the research on self-compassion, define what self-compassion is and challenge the myths about self-compassion that lead people to be overly harsh and critical with themselves. The connection between self-criticism and shame based perfectionism will be discussed as an unseen barrier to high performance. Finally, the instructor will illustrate how increased self-compassion can improve your work performance while enhancing and protecting your health and well-being.

You can join the conversation in person, or participate in the group process on-line via Zoom.
