Shifting workplace wellness initiatives to center on relationship-based resilience practices rather than solely on individual practices.Why does this matter?

When teams frame adversity as a collective problem, it distributes the demands across members, reducing an individual’s experience of isolation and overwhelm.

This process improves communication, cohesion and problem solving – and is central to sustainable wellness for all members of an organization.As explored in a recent Harvard Business Review article, framing adversity as a collective can be facilitated by taking what some call a “relational pause.”A relational pause is a brief reflective break where group members are invited to consider and share the emotional and relational aspects of their work – the human aspects – within an environment of authenticity, active listening and care.Relational pauses can be integrated routinely as part of group meetings, called on when emotions are running high to reduce incivility, used to help process loss, or incorporated into established wellness initiatives, such as a yoga class.
