OD - Organizational Development module

CoachingOurselves - Reflection Café: A Leader Health Action Plan

Duration: 0.1 days
Cost: $0
Course objectives:
These 90-minute lunch time peer-coaching sessions provide a unique opportunity to talk and reflect on issues you face at McGill. In groups of 4-6 participants, discussions are guided by a facilitator and cover over 80 CoachingOurselves modules. The facilitator can be an HR professional, coach or one of the participants themselves (self-directed sessions). This framework, created by Dr. Henry Mintzberg and Phil LeNir, is a proven process to catalyze informal and social learning in organizations. Topic themes range from engaging and strengthening teams, to enhancing communication, driving change, basic management skills and strategic thinking. Sessions can also be arranged within your team or across your Faculty or Unit.
Managing is hard work: it can be wearing physically, as well as emotionally. Long hours often lead to a lack of exercise, missed meals and unhealthy compensatory eating. In this topic we present some simple tools to incorporate into your busy workday to promote a healthy lifestyle. You will be able to increase your energy levels to better meet the demands of your work and also help prevent many diseases of modern life. As medical professionals, we have applied our expertise to a new interactive model of medicine called the Business Leader’s Health Programme (BLHP). We have used this model with over 80,000 senior managers with remarkable success. Today you will look at how to maintain a healthy physical lifestyle with our Health Action Plan (HAP). The objectives for this topic are to:
Reflect on your present health situation.
Understand why you may make unhealthy choices and how to make healthier ones.
Decide how you can incorporate the Health Action Plan into your workday.
