Are You Financially on Track for Retirement?
One of the top financial goals for individuals and couples is to be financially secure in retirement. This goal is not one that can be planned for in just the last few years leading up to the planned retirement date, but must be set and have milestones identified throughout the different stages of life. There are many "rules of thumb" or theories on the proper amount and type of savings and investments one should have in setting aside money for retirement, but in reality, there is not one plan or solution that fits everyone.

Mental Health Awareness
At one time or another, everyone experiences symptoms of mental illness. Too frequently the response to such symptoms in the workplace is confusion, fear, judgment, avoidance and outright rejection. This leads to a worsening of symptoms and a deterioration of performance. This training is designed to reduce the stigma associated with mental illness and to promote ways of supporting one another in the workplace. The session will address signs and symptoms of distress and effective ways of providing support for co-workers. The training also will include exercises to develop these skills.

Managing Worry And Anxiety
Worries are thoughts we have about the future that generate fear. They arrive in the form of a "what if?" and generate dire warnings about terrible consequences that await us. Unfortunately, these warnings we give ourselves are generally overblown and focused on hypothetical problems that probably won’t happen. Chronic worry that begins to impact the quality of life becomes "anxiety" and well-intended suggestions to "stop worrying" or applying common stress management techniques are mostly ineffective. This training will address how worry habits develop and methods of intervening with worry and anxiety.

Mindfulness: Being Present in Your Work and Life
The idea of mindfulness or being mindful is complete engagement in the present moment. It is a state where you are not thinking, reflecting, judging or deciding, but are instead simply experiencing the things currently in your available experience. In many ways people are largely unaware of our present moment, and often operate on "auto-pilot" to some degree. The auto-pilot mode is our default mode of operation. Even when we find ourselves in a pleasurable quiet moment we automatically begin to daydream about others, plan/worry about the future or ruminate about the past. We miss living in the present moment because we fail to pay attention to it. Mindfulness is about waking up to the present moment and paying attention to our experience. Learning mindfulness is not difficult; however, it is difficult to remember to do it. This training discusses mindfulness and how to incorporate its practice into your life.

"Let's Talk Politics": How to Have Impassioned Disagreements Without Damaging Relationships
Most people believe their social and political views are based on fact and reflect their important values. Therefore, having conversations about sensitive topics such as politics, racism, and social issues can cause strain on relationships with friends, family and co-workers. Instead of allowing political discussions to destroy these relationships, what if we could use these conversations to examine our own beliefs, look at facts and find common ground?
