Janssen scientific communication team - stress and resilience
Myself, and Stephanie Davies had the opportunity to collaborate for a day with Janssen, a pharmaceutical company of Johnson & Johnson.
They commissioned Laughology to provide a full day business workshop, exploring team building, managing workloads, reducing stress and building resilience and positive thinking into their scientific communications team, not to mention that they were looking to have a good laugh at the end of a stressful 12 months.
Our brief was to deliver the workshops to a group of 23-30 and focus on:
- Groundwork thinking for 2016 objectives
- Managing workloads and stress
- Team building/engagement, sharing experiences and learnings
Myself and Stephanie worked with the group to deliver, 'Working happy' to improves well-being and emotional intelligence, alongside the Laughology 'FLIP-It' workshop, which builds resilience and positive thinking.
We also used smaller 'thinking circle' groups to talk about topics such as:
- Situations that you feel most at ease in?
- When was the last time you had fun?
- What has been the most fun you have had at work?
The group were a delight to work with, honest in their interactions and contributed well to a jam-packed day that culminated in an interactive quiz which allowed them to review the day in a hilarious send-up.
