The ILCMA  Professional Development Committee Presents:  “Dimensions of Wellness”

The American Psychological Association (APA) in 2013 found that chronic, job-related stress is a serious issue affecting more than one-third of working americans. Sixty-five percent of Americans cited work as their top source of stress in the 2012 Stress in America Survey and only 36% of respondents said their organizations were providing sufficient resources to manage that stress.

Presenters:
AMITA Health – Dimensions of Wellness

Living healthy is more than just living with the absence of disease; it focuses on whole-body wellness and ways to achieve a better lifestyle. Wellness is a multi-dimensional concept that involves choice, rest, activity, social support, and nutrition. These dimensions do not work individually; they rely on each other to help build a stronger foundation for better health. It is about being mentally, physically, and socially fit – getting the most from life and fulfilling your potential.

Chill Chicago – Mindfulness 101

Job-related stress costs U.S. companies an estimated $300 billion per year and employee turnover can cost from 30-400% of a person’s annual salary dpending upon their level. Meditation has been shown to help 63% of employees manage themselves at work and 91% report a positive impact on company culture. Team mindfulness reduces interpersonal conflict. Chill Chicago will provide an introduction to corporate mindfulness and meditation in the workplace and lead a 30 minute meditation practice.

Please join the Metro Managers for the October Luncheon:  “Unconscious Bias:  How do you know what you don’t know?”

Now, more than ever, it is imperative for Managers/Administrators to be cognitive of the communities they serve and the organizations they lead. The profession of local government calls on us to be good stewards of the public trust and to engage the citizenry we serve. To this end, sound leaders should be well-versed in understanding perspectives that may differ based on gender, race, age, religious preference and more. Furthermore, it is important to build organizations which evolve to mirror the respective communities being served.

Patricia Efiom, Chief Equity Officer, City of Evanston, will provide thought provoking insights and examples that will be sure to catch your attention. Join colleagues over lunch and listen to a presentation about Unconscious Bias and what Managers/Administrators ought to be thinking about when establishing an environment of inclusion.
