 This month’s campaign discusses:

  • How to identify and avoid common scams
  • The surprising signs of a stolen identity

Life Changes

If there’s one thing we cannot avoid, it’s change. Much of the time change comes in the form of minor adjustments or temporary inconveniences encountered in our day-to-day lives. Other times, however, the changes we experience can be quite disruptive or even life-altering. While the transition to a new reality can be complicated, confusing, and perhaps frightening, there are ways to ease the shift from one way of life to another.

 This month’s campaign reveals:

  • The importance of acknowledging change and loss
  • Some unexpected benefits of experiencing loss
  • Why you should give yourself permission to grieve

Optimize Your Output

There are countless tips, tricks, and life hacks out there that aim to help us better manage and track daily to-dos. While many of those techniques are quite handy and have value, they often focus on specific types of tasks, or they relate to only one life aspect. Becoming truly productive requires a much broader lifestyle approach based on a few simple standards.

 

This month’s campaign discusses:

  • The importance of a tidy workspace
  • Small habits that have a big impact on productivity
  • Why every hour on your calendar should be blocked

Building such a team can be attainable with the support of your Employee Assistance Program (EAP).

Communicate with Clarity

Communication is at the very core of everything we do and is fundamental to tour personal success and our business success. Communication is also crucial in the general flow of daily life. Everything we do and say – and also what we don’t – conveys some kind of message, yet we aren’t always conscious of how we interact from one moment to the next or the effects that can have on our daily life. This month, we’ll show you how communicate more effectively by interacting with intention.

 

This month’s campaign discusses:

  • The value of being a more mindful communicator
  • Techniques for improving your daily interactions with others
  • How to avoid miscommunication and wasted time

Communication in our work and personal relationships is a critical skill for success. We’ve all experienced problems with communication that result in small misunderstandings and larger misinterpretations. Attend this webinar to build your communication skills, from listening and understanding others to speaking effectively with others.
