"Creativity is Intelligence having FUN”
- Albert Einstein
Creating a healthy work environment requires a number of elements ranging from inspiration and solid leadership to respectful behaviour and on-going support. Too often, teams get “stuck” in patterns that are not only not helpful but also not healthful. Morale declines and staff “check out”, resulting in frustration for everyone.
Dorothy Garlough’s creative facilitation will help to create an environment where ideas can flourish, where all team members are valued and included. Her workshops will help spark different thinking by arming teams with the discovery cycle – a repeatable process to brainstorm and innovate. Additionally, the team will learn to discern civil behaviour on the civility spectrum to determine if their actions in the workplace are respectful.
Communication will be influenced by Dorothy’s yoga expertise. Her deep learning of yoga philosophies helps create ownership in others through empowering conversations. This will aid in shifting behaviours that do not support the highest good of the individual or the organization.
Dorothy creative facilitation zaps teams into rethinking how they go about their tasks and challenges them to bring inspiration, autonomy and enablement into the workplace. She helps others visit discussions, brainstorming and idea generation with an open mind and an open heart.
Dorothy has practiced yoga personally for over forty years and is a living example of the value of this ancient practice. As an early adopter, she knows of both the physical and mental gains of yoga. In 2009, she obtained her Yoga Exercise Specialist designation and today teaches yoga to others in her weekly class.
Matching movement with breath not only strengthens our bodies but it also trains our minds. In addition, meeting challenges in life from a place of calm will always lead to better results. This focusing of the mind has now been proven scientifically to have health benefits as well, reducing stress and helping to improve multitudes of diseased conditions. Today, yoga is being promoted by such esteemed clinics as the Mayo Clinic and Harvard’s Clinical Research Institute.
The programs Dorothy offers have a strong yogic influence. Her goal is to help others achieve balance and centeredness by offering tools for mindfulness and yoga. Engaging Team’s mind/body/spirit retreats aligns with the holistic approach to elevate both kindness and confidence in others.
