I’m a Survivor: Getting Through the Doom & Gloom
Our ability to remain resilient has been severely tested in 2020. Even with the prospect of a vaccine on the horizon, the mental health implications of the Covid lockdown, increased workloads (for some) and the threat of redundancy (for others) will linger long into 2021.
This has huge implications on the diversity and inclusion agenda. How can we stay open and tolerant when we’re all feeling tired, stressed and anxious? How can we be inclusive and empathetic when we’re concerned for our own safety and wellbeing?
In this session, counsellor and coach Phil Cox addresses the widely-felt (but little spoken-about) doom and gloom that people are feeling. He provides practical solutions to help employees manage stress, create psychological safety and avoid burnout.
Can you afford to miss this session?
Whether working with individuals or teams, Phil draws on his experiences and learning from the fields of individual & group development, counselling, psychotherapy, and change management. His counselling training, and subsequent practice as an integrative counsellor, means that he brings a psychologically-informed approach to his work.
We all need to have a sense of purpose and meaning. It brings a richness to our lives – at home and at work. When purpose and meaning are missing, this can have a detrimental effect on our sense of identity, and – with it – our ability to thrive. Phil’s focus is on helping others to explore their life purpose and sense of identity; to consider how these bring meaning – and resilience –to their work; and to find ways (such as ‘job crafting’) to achieve alignment of their personal and professional identity.
For over 20 years Phil has held UK and international HR and Leadership Development roles in a variety of organisations; most notably Panasonic, KPMG and PwC. He started his career as a graduate trainee for M&S, where he became one of their youngest store managers.
These days he works with a range of organisations across many sectors – professional services, retail, financial services, education, pharma and the public sector.
