News from Oasis School of Human Relations

Hi Cathy,

Welcome to the first O Zone of 2019! I hope you enjoy our new look.

People are already signing up to our first Salon event of the year, with Dr Louis Klein. He'll be starting a deeper dialogue on how we apply our values and principles to our selves, our work and our planet. It's called Good Governance is Everything. Louis is also holding a workshop for board members, leaders and organisational developers on Developing Smart Governance in a Changing World.

If you value your people and want to improve their working lives, if you are curious and up for trying something different, then please come along to our Resilience and Wellbeing Network Taster Day on January 25th. It's totally free and a chance to find out more about how you can incorporate more resilience and wellbeing into your organisation.

We're running three not-to-be missed programmes this year - for developing leaders, coaches and facilitators. This month we're focusing on Whole Person Facilitating, which has been redesigned and relaunches this year, facilitated by all three directors. It will help you develop a deeper, more courageous practice when working with groups.

Best wishes, 

Cathy Neligan

Director of Communications

Whole Person Facilitating 

This 14-day, year-long programme starts in October. 

We take a Whole Person approach, which means you need to be prepared to go on your own self-development journey, whilst learning how to go deeper when working with groups.

It appeals to both experienced and new facilitators and generally attracts a varied group who learn from each other.

Here are three articles from the Oasis blog:

Yaakov Atik on Good Anger and Harmful Anger

Anger gets a bad press. It is mostly perceived as an emotion that needs to be managed and controlled. Understandably so, especially in these turbulent times.

Nick Ellerby on The importance of encouragers and encouraging

What are the invisible forces at work, if any, that bring angels into our lives? Coincidence, serendipity, vulnerability, reputation, intentionality, or whatever it might be, how fortunate we are when we encounter people during our lives who simply have a desire to support and encourage.

To give you a taster of some of what we do, here's a blog from our archive: 

Busting the 1-in-4 myth in mental health awareness by Dr Jacqui Wilmshurst

If you attend a session on ‘mental health’ it is highly likely that you will be told that 1 in 4 adults will experience mental health issues in any given year.
