In this Q&A, we talked to Aoife Gorey – Director, Marketing & Partnerships EU at accredited Business All-Stars Genos Europe.
# Tell us about yourself and your company?
Genos International Europe helps organisations apply core emotional intelligence skills that enhance their self-awareness, empathy, leadership, resilience, and mindfulness.
In our world of ‘do more with less’, applying a mindful and emotionally intelligent approach is fundamental to success. Genos International Europe is based in Kildare and supports a global network of coaches, trainers and facilitators.
They specialise in the provision of emotional intelligence assessment solutions and development programs for helping organisations develop mindfulness, resilience, and strategies for creating happier, more productive and engaged workforces.
# How is the business responding to the COVID-19 challenge?
Genos Europe has created a specialised resilience and stress-management training titled ‘Coping with the Stress of Coronavirus’ to help organisations deal with the current challenges faced by COVID-19.
The content and delivery consist of a variety of proven techniques and strategies for building more resilient, happier teams by helping them to shift their mindset about stress and equipping them with a selection of practices for supporting their everyday lives.
# Tell us about your new service/offer?
In four 60-minute live sessions, attendees experience a shift in their stress mindset that will radically change how they respond to the challenges of the coming months.
They’ll learn about research from the neuroscience of stress coupled with proven mindfulness and emotional intelligence practices to equip them with the deep resilience they need to deal with this crisis.
By the end of this experience, they’ll be equipped with a unique and practical toolset that will not only help them come through this time of challenge in one piece but will help them become their best selves in the process of doing this – making personal breakthroughs they never thought possible in the face of such challenging times.
They’ll walk away with an actionable approach for shifting their mindset when it comes to stress and challenges at work, and how they deal with them.
All programs are highly customisable to the needs of an organisation and their teams – with the option of additional sessions. The sessions are delivered live, online and are suitable for employees at all levels and roles in the organisation.
The course works through:
1. Coping with the Coronavirus Challenge
2. Developing Inner Calm
3. Building up your Emotional Resilience
4. Envisioning a Post-Coronavirus Life
