Healthy work cultures are not "built" as much as "nudged" over time. Nudge means gradual, intentional, peer-to-peer positive interaction and encouragement. Recognized in the National Registry of Evidence-Based Programs and Practices (NREPP), "Team Awareness" (TA) has provided nudge training to over 10,000 workers in various industries. Join this session to learn how any culture of health effort must consider the work group, leadership, and social health.
We will explain how TA works, how to start using quick tools from TA, and three tenets of wellness cultures: (1) Costs are incurred if you only invest in individual health when the work culture is toxic; (2) Strong wellness program don't guarantee worker engagement; (3) The strongest workplace influence on employee health is his or her immediate work-group and supervisor.
This third tenet is a force-multiplier which you can jump-start by empowering work groups to know their health benefits, coping skills, tolerance levels for unhealthy practices, by reviewing basic listening skills, and through NUDGE: Notice who may need your encouragement; Understand your role; Decide if you should say something; if so, use GUIDELINES for communication, and then Encourage!
Following the webinar, participants will be able to:
describe the six modules of Team Awareness and why it has been so effective
use tools from the Team Awareness curriculum
understand the basic steps of nudging
