Humans of the Sector

Tuesday October 11, 2022, 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Course Overview

Practical self-development strategies for practitioners looking to build strength & resilience in complex & challenging environments.

The past two years has taught us that we are not invincible. Many of us have faced unimaginable pressures and burn out has been at an all time high. Organisations and systems have been challenged to provide adequate support & traditional self-care strategies aren’t cutting it anymore.

Humans of the Sector is a practical self-development training for professionals looking to be their best selves in the face of adversity. Our ‘for us by us’ approach means that our training is facilitated by practitioners/peers who have first hand experience in navigating challenging and complex environments.


Learning Outcomes

  • Unpack the biggest professional and personal challenges in a supportive environment of peers who understand your experience.
  • Be more consistent with your own values and apply versatile mindfulness & acceptance skills in your responses to uncontrollable experiences (no cheesy stuff – we promise).
  • Co-regulation is one of the most powerful tools to help us build connection whilst limiting the impacts of vicarious trauma.
  • Learn how to manage the expectations of ourselves and others, whilst prioritising and understanding the fulfilment that is always available to us.
  • Seeing others well-being – particularly their emotional health – as a shared responsibility of our teams and leaders rather than the lone task of an individual.
  • Self-development looks different for everyone. Learn how to practice flexible self-development strategies and tools that are both effective and time efficient.
