Resilience at Work was developed in 2020 to support teams and organizations with cultivating resilience and well-being through challenging times.

Resilience at Work has been facilitated with a wide range of organizations including Fortune 500 companies, non-profit organizations, small businesses, educational and academic organizations, and at international events and conferences.

This workshop was a much needed breath of fresh air. At a time when humanitarian work is critically urgent, practicing self-care as a team was a radical and necessary thing to do. I thought I already knew the basics but I was surprised at how much I learned, and I walked away feeling lighter and energized. Ami is wonderful and easy to work with, and I would highly recommend this program to anyone and everyone.

The educational component covers research-based information on burnout, stress, and self-care, an overview of occupation burnout (what burnout is, how to recognize it, risk factors, symptoms, what to do about it), and an overview of self-care (what self-care actually is and means, obstacles to self-care, making self-care sustainable).

The experiential component includes mind-body practices for stress management and burnout prevention, such as mindfulness and self-compassion practices, self-reflective exercises, and creative exercises to support effective stress management. These experiential practices will be self-care tools that attendees can keep using after the workshop.

Self-care needs and concerns specific to your team can also be addressed and team-building exercises and discussion may also be included.

Who is Resilience at Work a good fit for?

Resilience at Work may especially be helpful for teams and organizations who are at risk for burnout due to high-pressure work environments, emotionally demanding work, or changing/unstable work situations.

Resilience at Work can be a valuable and meaningful experience for individuals who spend most hours of their day helping others. This workshop can help build a greater understanding of burnout, stress, and self-care to work towards work/life integration for long-term fulfillment at work and home.

Who is Resilience at Work NOT a good fit for?

This workshop is not a diet or exercise program. Although diet and exercise are important parts of self-care, our focus is more on the emotional, social, and mind-body practices that can support healthy habits, relationships, communication, and choices.

This workshop was everything I needed at the time. I loved the meditation and exercises that we can use in our everyday life. I felt clear and free of tension after the workshop.

This workshop helped me to feel comfortable with my emotions and know how important is to take care of myself. I like the presenter’s tone of voice because I felt comfortable, interested in the information, and motivated.

It is a great workshop to understand self-care but also not forgetting our obligations and responsibilities.

Excellent presentation! Interesting, helpful, and so applicable. I really enjoyed all the application of techniques that were used throughout the presentation. The way the material was presented was in a manner that speaks to everyone in all cultures.

Ami is a caring and compassionate presenter who truly possesses the talent of communicating self-care awareness, techniques, and analysis in a palatable manner.

This workshop was very educational and also gave me insight on what tools to use when I am feeling overwhelmed at work whether it’s a trigger from my personal life or my work life.

The 3 hours flew by because there was so much great info to take in. Ami covered many fantastic topics and suggestions to manage stress and burnout.

I thought this was a very relevant and valuable session. I’ve listened to many speakers on similar topics and I was still able to learn things from Ami that I have never even heard exactly the way she put it. She also has a very relaxing voice which makes her an excellent speaker on this topic. I will definitely keep my Self-Care Toolbox with me.

I needed this session so desperately. It has helped me learn new methods of self-care and relaxation. The tools are absolutely applicable and useful.

Ami was very thorough and knowledgeable and I appreciated the combination of the information being presented and opportunity to interact and participate.

The flow of the presentation was wonderful and I was able to stay fully present for the entire 3 hours. The presentation was clear and simple, yet very informative. Ami was confident and knowledgeable. I really enjoyed this.

I really enjoyed participating in breathing exercises, additional short meditations, and how interactive it was. Ami is an incredible speaker! Absolutely LOVED this presentation.
