Why bring Emotional Fitness® into the classroom and schools?

The 200hrs Emotional Fitness® Education Facilitator training course provides participants the opportunity to fully experience & practice the processes of Emotional Fitness® as developed by Warren Redman, and learn effective Mindfit4life™ strategies for the workplace. In the first part of this program, participants will discover the power of deep listening through the approach found in the book 'The 9 Steps to Emotional Fitness®' which won the 2004 Canadian Counselling & Psychotherapy Award as a self-help toolkit for the 21st century. This customized training course will offer participants a range of techniques to improve their emotional fitness and overall mental wellbeing. Through interactive sessions, participants will learn to implement Emotional Fitness® into their daily routines, both at work and at home.  The course will cover topics such as stress management, mindful living, emotional regulation, communication skills, especially power listening, and more. By the end of the program, participants will have a better understanding of their emotional triggers and the ability to handle challenging situations with greater resilience and effectiveness. Overall, the training course will help individuals and teams thrive both in and out of the workplace by creating a more positive and collaborative environment, leading to higher levels of engagement, productivity, support, and satisfaction.

Alongside the Emotional Fitness® Certification Training Course, participants will learn Mindfit4life™ strategies specifically arranged to support colleagues and teams in various work environments. Mindfit4life™ focuses on developing a greater sense of personal & professional mindfulness, emotional wellness, and resilience in dealing with other individuals and their issues. By applying Mindfit4life™ and Emotional Fitness® in any workplace setting, it leads to increased productivity, better communication, and reduced stress levels. Individuals learn to manage their emotions, improve their decision-making skills, and develop a positive mindset, strengthening team dynamics, a more positive work environment, and improving overall performance. Additionally, these strategies are useful in various environments such as organizations, educational institutions, healthcare systems, hospitality, corporate workplaces and other. Individuals use specific skills and techniques to help manage their emotions and improve their focus and concentration. By promoting emotional fitness, employers and employees create positive and inclusive environments that encourages engagement and fosters healthy relationships. Additionally, these strategies help manage stress and burnout, leading to a more fulfilling work experience.
