Corporate Keynotes/Workshops

Build Resiliency at Home and Work

Emotional health concerns have a significant impact on work performance. Each day, most employees walk into work distracted by a personal issue. Many of these distractions can be classified as a mental health issue such as a marriage or family concern, anxiety, depression, or job stress. The American Psychiatric Association Foundation reports that about half of individuals with anxiety and depression are untreated. Despite these statistics, emotional health remains a taboo topic at the workplace and persons often push aside normal emotions to force positivity.

These sessions offer a fresh perspective and new take on mindfulness, gratitude, and resilience to address thoughts which lead to anxiety and increased stress levels and flip them to improve overall wellbeing and job performance. Nurse Jesse offers ideas in TED Talk-style presentations, “It Makes Me Happy” and “The Secret World of Self,” with skill-building exercises and take-away worksheets to easily apply the concepts within your teams.

Corporate Feedback:

“It Makes Me Happy, LLC provided a training program for our membership that focused on the important concept of emotional wellbeing. Nurse Jesse and Karla shared stark and surprising statistics about the prevalence of emotional issues and how these issues affect productivity, performance and engagement on the job. But even more importantly, their training normalized, and humanized, this complex topic to bring it to the forefront when working with employees and developing organizational wellbeing strategies. The training focuses on widening perspective about emotional issues and offers techniques to use both personally and professionally in the spirit of improving emotional wellbeing. Nurse Jesse and Karla bring value through their training for audiences such as: managers and leaders, workplace wellness-focused professionals, HR teams and general team-building.”
