You will learn to use positive language to increase your confidence and create a positive, confident, can-do impression.

Code: SGC/21/0669 International Women's Day: Watch, listen and discuss: Brenè Brown: The power of vulnerability TED Talk

Click here to join the meeting

Vicky will share the video link to Brené Brown’s The Power of Vulnerability TED Talk. Attendees can comment in the chat, listen, and participate in a post-video discussion about Brené’s insights.

Brené Brown studies human connection – our ability to empathize, belong, love. In a poignant, funny talk, she shares a deep insight from her research, one that sent her on a personal quest to know herself as well as to understand humanity.

The power of vulnerability: TED Talk will enable a supportive discussion and connection between attendees.

The Staff Women’s Group is leading this event in celebration of International Women’s Day. This particular initiative was chosen as Covid-19’s lockdown restrictions mean that human connection is harder and limited. On the front lines and at home, women are disproportionately impacted by Covid-19. Globally, 70 per cent of health workers and first responders are women. For women, the pandemic means unpaid care and domestic work burden has increased significantly.

The Staff Women’s Group is a supportive space. The intention of this session is to learn, share experiences, make friends, and realise you are not alone.

These 50 minute coaching sessions with coaches will assist council staff in coming up with strategies and action plans to maintain and build their wellbeing and resilience. Unlike counselling which provides a safe space to explore worries and concerns, these confidential coaching sessions will help staff come up with individual plans to help them build their resilience, understand what they can do to enhance their wellbeing and overcome current and future obstacles. There are activities and exercises that wellbeing coaches can also give people to work through in their own time if they would find it useful.

Please note these sessions will be delivered by skype or telephone.  Your coach will contact you to confirm the best method for you.
