    VIRTUAL Webinars

    The entire world, it seems, is cancelled.  Those that are on the front lines are overwhelmed and distraught.  Therefore, The School of Wellness is offering  lively, interactive webinars for any team in the world that could use some help in practicing extreme self care and strategies to stay SANE during this unprecedented time.  At No Cost.   Just email  Eileen some times to  discuss  your specific  context over the phone  and we will schedule it/make it happen.

    So far, since the pandemic began, The School of Wellness has conducted webinars for a wide range of teams, A Bar Association  (lawyers), ICU nurses in NYC,  physician assistants, Librarians, Universities (faculty and students), a parenting school, and a wide range of professional associations. Please reach out, we have good ideas and we very much want to help.

    Eileen T. O’Grady, Founder, The School of Wellness, LLC

    Interacting with difficult others in the workplace is a common occurrence.  Attorney Carolyn Buppert and Wellness Coach and Nurse Practitioner Dr. Eileen O’Grady are contacted by nurses in distress all over the United States because of rude, bullying, and toxic behaviors in the health care setting.  They want to know whether there are legal remedies that will free them from their situation. They want to know how to make it stop. This workshop will use case studies to explore and define illegal workplace behaviors including harassment and discrimination. The presenters will offer strategies on how to stop toxic workplace behavior and outline the evidence needed if there is a legal remedy.

    Often, bad workplace behavior isn’t illegal. For example, bullying is not illegal. Coworkers may be narcissists, emotional vampires, borderline personalities, and those that engage in power struggles.  The presenters offer a triage system to help identify the type of difficult person one is confronting and evidence-based strategies to mitigate the stress effect of these difficult people.  Accurately identifying the type of difficult other is a key initial step in knowing how to best handle these challenges so that the nurse is protected and the toxic interaction is de-escalated.
