The Wellness Connection Champions Leadership group had their inaugural meeting on Wednesday, 11/28. The leadership group serves as a mini-representation of the larger Wellness Connection Champion network, and will help the Wellness Connection team recruit, train, and deploy champions across the University to further our mission to promote employee health and wellness. During this productive first meeting, we defined the role of a champion, aligned ourselves into sub-committees, and chose training topics for the coming year.
- Recruitment & Retention
Providing quality training can create an opportunity for personal growth that will benefit both the volunteer and the University. Based on requests from our champions, Wellness Connection will partner with Guidance Resources to provide in-person training sessions at the 2019 quarterly luncheon meetings. Each quarterly meeting will have a new training. Topics will include:
- Effective communication and how to positively influence people
- Emotional agility and cultivating happiness
- Interpersonal skills and how to deal with negativity
- Active listening, referral skills, and how to be visible as a wellness champion
We look forward to reconvening in the new year and working to expand and strengthen our Wellness Connection Champion network.
