Lunch & Learn Training & Development Series

February 13, 2023 @ 11:00 am - February 21, 2023 @ 12:00 pm

Join us for our Lunch and Learn Series focusing on burnout to balance and practical problem-solving skills. As part of our overall HR support project for the sector, AMSSA is organizing several online learning events, including this Lunch and Learn series.
 
 
Pump the Brakes: Getting Off the Burnout Highway
February 13, 2023 / 11:00 am – 12:00 pm PST
 
The settlement sector moves at a fast pace! The unintended consequence is the pressure it can put on employees to overwork and push themselves into unhealthy patterns. During this session, we’ll analyze the dangers of this “hustle culture” and identify the risks involved in ignoring the busy signals we send out in our workplaces. Learn how to intentionally slow down work processes to allow for more reflection and review on how you are doing, in a deliberate effort to prevent exhaustion and burnout. Participants will leave this hour with tools, tips, and strategies to balance organizational efficiency with their own wellbeing.
 
 
Beyond the Box: Applying Creative Thinking to Practical Problem-solving
February 21, 2023 / 11:00 am – 12:00 pm PST
 
Do you ever get stuck on a problem with no clue what to do next? This session will provide you with some unconventional options for getting unstuck. Participants will be encouraged to think outside the box when approaching a problem or looking for solutions. The hour will include tips, tactics, and activities to unleash participants’ creativity and approach problems from a different perspective.
 
 
Note: Both sessions will be held in English only. There will be no recording of these sessions.

Kenzie George, Training & Development Partner
 
Kenzie believes in the potential of people; it is her purpose to help others on their journeys as they learn, grow, adapt, and succeed. With passion, drive, and appropriate support and training, it’s amazing to see how far people can go!
 
Kenzie’s passion is reinforced by both education and experience. A Master’s degree in Learning and OrganizationalChange acts as the theoretical backdrop for her specialization in leadership development, curriculum design, training and coaching, and organization-wide learning. Along her professional journey, Kenzie has gained experience in leadership development, training design and delivery, and professional development coaching. Kenzie enjoys her work most when in collaborative partnership with clients, developing strategic coaching, teambuilding, or training solutions to best address each unique situation.
