First Aid for the Working Frazzled.

Three “in-the-moment” practices to reduce stress and support your well-being at work.

Why is work/life well-being so challenging?

In this episode, Cathy explores why so many of us struggle with work/life well-being.

  • What makes this issue so complex?
  • How does seeing it as a complex issue show us a way forward?
  • How can we begin to take steps to create better well-being in the workplace and beyond?

Finally, she shares three in-the-moment practices to reduce your stress, open up new possibilities, and put you in a better position to affect meaningful change.

If you’d like an adapted transcript for this episode, you can find it on Cathy’s blog, Field Notes.

In this episode, I reference the work of David Snowden and the Cynefin Framework. You can find out more about his work here.

I also quote and recommend the book, Unleash Your Complexity Genius: Growing Your Inner Capacity to Lead, by Jennifer Garvey Berger and Carolyn Coughlin.
