Workplace healing and the future:
Our time has come?

Talk by, and discussion with, Catherine Dixon

“Hmm! Wellness workshops? Yes. well ... nice idea, but … here we don’t have time for all that the pink and fluffy stuff, We have to get on with it!”

Catherine Dixon
Catherine Dixon
is an events and workshop leader, mentor and therapist who specialises in wellness. She has over 20 years researching optimal living in mind, body and spirit and is a qualified hypnotherapist, shiatsu therapist and mindfulness teacher among other disciplines. Since 2012 she has delivered over 400 events to organisations such as HMRC, The National Crime Agency, The Foreign and Commonwealth Office and The NHS.

That was the sort of response often received some years ago by hypnotherapist Catherine Dixon whenever she suggested to employers that resilience and wellness should have a core place in the workplace learning and development curriculum.

But times have changed. These days that approach is precisely what many local, national and international organisations recognise that they need to evolve and move up to the next level.

So it was welcome return to the James Braid Society at its July 2017 meeting where Catherine explained her ideas and therapeutic stratigies.

Catherine also looked at the need for business organisations – both private and public – to develop people who compassionately engage with others, who bring out the best in others and who heal themselves and others by their presence and who inspire innovation and confidence."

Her presentation aslo examined:

• Why we need a different language to talk about healing and what we do

• The three conditions that always create healthy environments and what happens when they are not present

• Why the shape shifting structure of organisations brings powerful opportunities

• Why wellness is a key part of the future

• Why the collective leadership versus traditional leadership model is the next evolution

• The case for self-leadership as the cornerstone of everything.

The meeting will takes place at the  at “The Carpenters Arms”, 12 Seymour Place,  W1H 7NE – just off Edgware Road & close to Marble Arch tube station.  Meetings start at 7.15pm
