WELLBEING

Sustaining, supporting and enabling school staff

How do we keep happy, engaged and empowered teachers? Many teachers these days survive, rather than thrive in their career. Teachers cannot teach effectively when they are stressed, anxious and overwhelmed. Let alone thrive. Therefore, wellbeing is at the heart of any good school. The latest data is informing us that the majority of teachers are unhappy, feeling underappreciated and can’t manage their workload well, so there is a lot of catching up to be done in order for teachers to thrive and flourish again.

Wellbeing programs in schools are on the rise as teacher workloads are ever increasing. With a growing number of teachers indicating the workplace has a responsibility in addressing teacher wellbeing as much as they address student wellbeing, it is time to act!

My workshops and webinars target teacher wellbeing by focusing on the direct needs of teachers so they can flourish. I incorporate the science of Positive Psychology and Coaching Psychology into practical tools and strategies teachers can implement straight away.

“I found it to be a really good refresher or reminder of the sorts of things we can all do to become more in control of our own mental and emotional health. Our positive mindset is super important in underpinning our own wellbeing. I was reminded about making small changes that are sustainable, and over time they grow to be quite significant positive changes. I am positive that everyone left with some things at least to ponder and reflect upon, and hopefully to action. “

Principal Jocelyn Owen

Wodonga West Primary School

“What I loved about this webinar…It was relatable and easy to understand. We liked the part about being a good listener – when you ask how are you – you need to listen and do more than just ask the question. We thought it was very beneficial and as a staff we gained lots from the experience.”

Moira Ross

Principal Coimadai Primary

“This webinar was fantastic and it provided me with practical and useful information that I could have used at the beginning of my career. This knowledge would have saved me some of the struggle that I faced alone in my career. I highly recommend schools and governments to provide this among all schools, to create a better environment for all. If you take care of each other, students will be better off.

This webinar was practical, insightful and empowering. I believe this is concrete support for all in a school community and would love to see more schools take this approach..

I have seen other people try to do what you have but have missed the mark. You are spot on. So, thank you. I left wanting to continue my career with gusto.”

“It has been a challenging year for teachers. Wendy‘s presentation acknowledged the demanding work of teachers and was a timely reminder that we don’t need to be so hard on ourselves. Staff reviews were extremely positive commenting on her engaging, friendly, and natural communication style. Wendy provided numerous strategies for turning unhelpful thinking around; she gave practical ways to be less overwhelmed and more resilient.”

Janet MacKenzie

Staff Development Coordinator
St. Albans Secondary College, Victoria

“Some fantastic strategies for managing emails/workload.
Also a lot of positive suggestions about altering your own mindset. Encouraging that level of cognition really is the key.”
