Enneagram Circles

Enneagram Circles are opportunities for WW clients to come together with like-minded members of the WW community.  On the last Friday morning of each month, Work WIsdom offers a different Enneagram Circle based on our Authenticity Circle methodology for the Type that corresponds to that month (i.e. January for Type Ones, February for Type Twos).  

You will meet other professionals who share your Type and learn from each other about how to flourish and how to mitigate the shadow of that Type.  We discuss centers, stances, orientations to time and how you borrow behaviors from other Types in health and stress.  Most importantly, you get to connect with others who share the same lens and motivation as you do.

Review Club

In response to our many clients who wanted to stay abreast of the most current, evidence-based business insights, but who struggle to find time to absorb research, Work Wisdom formed a club called The Review. Each month, Work Wisdom team members read the Harvard Business Review and share the most exciting and relevant research with the members. Review Club members discuss ideas for improving their businesses based on the latest research and insight from other Club members. The Review meets for two hours each month. Membership includes both print and digital subscriptions to Harvard Business Review.

Workplace Well-being Training Series

Why?              Organizations often become accustomed to unproductive chronic stress and imbalance, but this does not have to be the norm.  At Work Wisdom we recognize the importance of investing in concrete skills that build high performing teams and individuals.  The science and tools exist to increase flourishing and to decrease negative stress and burnout.  Optimal organizational performance is possible when individuals are balanced, positive, creative, and motivated.  Financially, research has demonstrated that a 200% ROI is achievable when a company invests in Psychological Capital.

What?             Workplace Wellbeing Circles are intentionally curated, small groups designed to build positive mindsets and behaviors.

Circle members are introduced to the science behind positive and negative emotions and motivation through evidenced-based physiological, cognitive, and workplace strategies for increasing wellbeing.  Members of Workplace Wellbeing Circles meet regularly over the course of six months at Work Wisdom (Urban Place, Suite 6107, 480 New Holland Avenue, Lancaster PA 17602) for a confidential interactive learning workshop.  The circles are led by Work Wisdom’s Matt Sware and Kedren Crosby.  

When?            Workplace Wellbeing Circles meet for two hours per month for six months.    

How?              To join the next Workplace Wellbeing Circle, contact kate@workwisdomllc.com or at (573)837-7379.

Why, again?   We want your teams and organizations to become the best version of themselves.  Investing in smart, evidence-based wellbeing practices increases productivity, decreases turnover, and pays dividends.

The Review Club

Why?              Our clients have repeatedly told us that they want to be versed in the most current evidence-based business insights and research, but they simply don’t have the time to sift through and absorb another periodical.

What?             The Review is a club for clients of Work Wisdom designed to address this need.

Work Wisdom’s team reads the current issue of Harvard Business Review cover to cover.  Members of The Review meet monthly via zoom to hear summaries of the most compelling articles and research, eat together, and discuss ideas for improving their businesses based on the research.  The sessions are led by Work Wisdom’s Kedren Crosby.

When?            The Review meets over breakfast for two hours each month on a recurrent basis.    

How?              To join the next cohort of The Review, contact Kedren@workwisdomllc.com or at (717)327-7780. The cost of a one-year membership to the Review is $1,200 for the full year, which includes 12 sessions of The Review, copies of journals and breakfasts.

Why, again?   We want to resolve this pain point for our clients in a safe space while also bringing the world’s best ideas to our communities.  We hope you’ll join us.
