    Guest Speaker Carol Schulte – Empowering HR Leaders for Mental Wellness – Navigating Well-Being and Prioritizing Self-Care Strategies

    February 15 @ 11:30 am - 1:30 pm

    Founder of The Brave Initiative, and mental health advocate, Carol has been educating and empowering audiences internationally – including Fortune 500 companies, International Associations, and individual leaders – to get their brave on – for almost a decade. She is passionate about empowering workplaces to engage in braver conversations, create braver cultures, and get into braver action.

    Having been diagnosed with a mental illness later in life, she has learned the hard way the importance of prioritizing wellness, and what it really means to be brave. She is the creator of the Brave Beyond Diagnosis community and the transformative Find Your Brave experience, and author of The Brave Healing Journal – A guided journey to find your brave and empower your life – one day at a time.

    Carol has lived in 12 countries, including Ashrams in India and vans in New Zealand, shaved her head for breast cancer, and bungee jumped in her birthday suit – walking her talk and bringing a global perspective to all she does.

    She believes wholeheartedly the bravest thing you can do, is to be brave enough to be you.

    In the corporate landscape, discussing mental health has traditionally been shrouded in stigma. It’s scary, it’s uncomfortable, and it’s more important than ever. Identifying the signs, learning the tools, and creating safe spaces are critical in normalizing the concept it’s okay not to be okay.

    As we navigate the post-COVID era, addressing mental health in the workplace is paramount. Studies reveal that a staggering 80% of workers grapple with various mental health challenges, from stress and anxiety to more serious diagnoses, costing employers an estimated thirty billion dollars annually.

    This presentation aims to empower HR leaders – providing them with insights and strategies to navigate mental wellness more effectively, both for themselves and their teams. Let’s bridge the gap between those uncomfortable conversations and practical solutions, so we can prioritize wellbeing, and set the stage for a workplace where everyone can thrive.

    Key Takeaways:

     Identify Everyday Stress: Recognize signs of everyday stress and anxiety, and learn preventive strategies for a mentally healthy workplace.

     Break Through Bravery Barriers: Understand and overcome the five big bravery barriers—to create a culture that promotes authenticity and well-being.

     Master Brave Conversations: Develop practical strategies and confidence for engaging in brave conversations about mental wellness. Advocate effectively for the needs of yourself and your team.
