Mindfulness at UCOP
Jan. 20, 11 a.m. – 12 p.m. (PT)
Less stress. Enhanced awareness and focus. Improved health. These are some of the benefits shown in research studies on mindfulness. In this one-hour workshop, you will learn how to both reduce your stress and increase your effectiveness at work through simple mindfulness techniques.

Navigating Change and Transitions
Jan. 26, 10 a.m. – 12 p.m. (PT)
“The only thing that is constant is change” — Heraclitus, who lived 100 years before Plato, knew this, and it is still true in today’s world. This workshop will explore the human response to change and stages within the transition process. Participants will expand their capability to successfully navigate through personal and professional changes while utilizing the William Bridges transition model and psychological flexibility framework.

21 Practices for Happiness at Work
Jan. 31, 1 – 3 p.m. (PT)
In this hands-on workshop presented by popular vendor People-OnTheGo, participants will learn to develop and practice the mindfulness, emotional intelligence, growth mindset and productivity skills that are crucial in today’s workplace. We’ll focus on behavioral changes and initiative-taking, while at the same time paying attention to self-care, stress reduction, fostering enjoyment and self-fulfillment.
