Emotional wellbeing for relocation
Singapore is an extremely mobile environment with people arriving and leaving regularly. High mobility impacts even long-term stayers, as supportive friendships are often lost when other people move away. When one or both parents travel for work, those cycles of mobility enter the home as well as within the wider community.
High levels of mobility are characterized by frequent loss and change, which is emotionally stressful for everyone involved.
The experience of loss and change for executives and their families can result in challenging feelings, such as stress, grief and guilt.
In this workshop, participants will discover the importance of taking a proactive approach to emotional wellbeing in a highly mobile environment. In addition, they will learn simple, practical strategies for processing challenging feelings. Those feelings might include stress from travelling or the guilt of leaving family for work trips. The workshop will be engaging and interactive, with many opportunities for discussion and reflection.
Date/Time: Wednesday, 25 September, 3.30pm registration/networking/coffee & tea and snacks for 4pm - 6pm workshop
Location: British Chamber of Commerce, 137 Telok Ayer Street #06-03, Singapore, 068602
This event is limited to 24 members.
