Work Place Situations and Solutions with Joda Coolidge of BrightCoach Consulting Group
Even in the best of work situations, challenges often surface that can be difficult to discuss or address. Compensation, added household responsibilities, or conflicting direction from your employers are just a few. Quite often, nannies will either remain silent or let the issues build, or talk about them only with close friends.
Joda Coolidge, Life and Wellness Coach, will teach you a powerful way to positively, comfortably, and confidently approach these communication challenges. You will be taught techniques to have impactful, meaningful, and results oriented conversations. http://jodacoolidge.com and http://www.bright-coach.com/
Myrna Alphonse Newman has adjusted her philosophy of care and will be sharing the various ways she has evolved. This workshop is for any nanny at any stage in their career. Myrna had the unique opportunity to observe how differently the Japanese approach early learning and how well-prepared the students were for life. In the United States, by adolescence many of our students are burnt out with little intrinsic motivation needed to succeed. Consider rewinding your philosophy of care by re-examining what is really important in developmental milestones and learning why physically focused childhood development is the key to stimulating lasting emotional, social and intellectual health.
Have you ever stopped to reconsider if your way of nannying is working still or do you feel stale and stalled? Perhaps a new approach is needed. How does your philosophy help enrich the children and families' life in your employment. Learn how you can apply the techniques you learn from various trainings, conferences and educational opportunities to stay on top of your nanny career. Have you stayed with what is asked of you from your nanny family or do you explore other approaches and philosophies that may be of assistance to them and you as well? Learn how Myrna's journey has helped her evolve over her 20 plus years in the nanny industry. Learn ways you can evolve as well to bring your best each day.
