LifeWorks October Features on Mental Health and Change, and Webinars on Bullying and Children and Divorce

LifeWorks, Illinois Tech’s Employee Assistance Program, offers a new work-life balance highlight each month. This month’s feature is Life Events and Our Mental Health. Managers have an additional feature on Leading Your Team Through Change.
Whether it is the death of a loved one or birth of a child, adjusting to the changes that significant life events bring can be tough. Check out Coping with Change: Change and Stress or Coping with Change: Helpful tips on coping with change for more tips on managing life changes, and don’t forget that your family and friends can be a great support system (and can access to LifeWorks themselves).
Being a manager comes with a lot of responsibility, so when leading your team through a difficult adjustment period, it is important to create a plan of action, communicate clearly, delegate tasks, and ensure you are managing your employees’ expectations. For more tips, read Managing Through Pressured Times: Supporting your team during pressured times or check out Managing Through Workplace Change.
This month’s webinars will take place as follows:
  • Bullying: October 4, 2-2:30 p.m. EST
  • Children & Divorce: October 18, 2-2:30 p.m. EST
