Towards Compassion-Based Practice - Self-Care Strategies for HR
Mindfulness and compassion have been described as the 'two wings' of awareness. In this seminar, practitioners will:
Develop a working definiton of compassion; understand its evolutionary basis and the underpinning neuroscience
Experience and take away immediately 'usable' strategies for developing self-compassion and 'tools' to take back to the workplace
Be signposted to case studies and resources to help continue to build their own and employees' emotional intelligence, resilience and wellbeing
Its 'tough out there emotionally' and HR, OD and coaches are on the front-line. Wellbeing strategies often focus on enabling employees to build their resilience to 'surf the waves' of an increasingly fast-paced, VUCA world. Yet who looks after the champions for creating organizations 'fit to house the human spirit?' In 2014 Peter Cheese described this as 'our time.' After two decades in HR and coaching and mentoring HR practitioners, I am inclined to agree with him. However, I am also aware that often our educational programmes focus on the 'doing' of HR, rather than who we are, the way we are, our 'way of being.' This session is unapologetically about developing those strategies to understand our own emotions and to develop tools to be compasssionate to ourselves, in order to help others build their resilience, thrive and flourish.
The seminar is for any practitioner who is involved in championing better work and working lives, with whatever job title or level. Self-care strategies are universal and mindfulness and compassion is central to any professional who is interested in building their own reslience and in developing as emotionally intelligent, mindful and adaptive practitioners. The session draws on 'state-of-the-art' research carried out by practitioners, for practitioners and so 'speaks' to the current theme of the future of HR and developing as an evidence-informed profession.

We are delighted to welcome Margaret Chapman-Clarke to speak at our January regional events - Margaret is author of The Emotional Intelligence (EI) and Mindfulness at Work Pocketbooks and was the first UK FCIPD and work psychologist to write about the transition of mindfulness into the workplace. She has spoken nationally and internationally about EI, mindfulness, coaching and resilience and is on the editorial boards of three coaching publications. She has published extensively on these topics and 2016 saw the launch of Mindfulness in the Workplace: An evidence-based approach to improving wellbeing and raising performance (Kogan Page). In this she discusses the importance of rethinking HR and asserts that in a volatile, uncertain and ambiguous (VUCA) world, we need to develop as ‘emotionally intelligent, mindful adaptive practitioners’ (EQ-MAPs for short!). Since returning to North Yorkshire Margaret has been an active supporter of the North Yorkshire CIPD branch, delivering a successful session on poetry and employee engagement! She is passionately committed to facilitating the personal development of practitioners, with a particular focus on strategies for self-care, because after a ll, to champion better work, and working lives, we need to first look after ourselves! www.koganpage.com/product/organizational-applications-of-mindfulness-9780749474904
