Bringing myself to work: is it a good idea?

17 January @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Virtual Event Virtual Event
Free – £15.00
PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS EVENT IS NOW CONFIRMED AS A “ZOOM ONLY” EVENT – WE WILL NOT BE MEETING IN PERSON. The Zoom link will be circulated ahead of the event.

Why do we struggle so much to compartmentalise our lives? Why do we try to cultivate an ‘at work persona’ which bears little, if any, resemblance to who we really are? Is it possible to bring the real me to work and still to ‘succeed’? And how has this been impacted by the experience of working from home through the pandemic?

Our session will be led by Romaine Thompson. Romaine worked as a lawyer in Birmingham city centre for 30 years until she retired from legal practice in 2016. Whilst she was a partner for the bulk of those years her biggest challenge (and her greatest reward) came as she served for almost 10 years as senior partner of Anthony Collins Solicitors LLP. She knows first-hand what it’s really like to be a leader both in the ordinary run of the mill routine and in extraordinarily challenging times. And throughout her working life she has grappled with the challenge of bringing herself to her work: she’ll be sharing some of her experiences to unpack whether or not it’s really a good idea at all!

Practicalities

  • This event will be accessible to Christians of all denominations and to women of all faiths and none.
  • This is now confirmed as a “Zoom only” event – we will not be meeting in person.  The Zoom link will be circulated ahead of the event.

FREE, WITH AN OPPORTUNITY TO DONATE TO C+: There will be no charge for the event. However, ChaplaincyPlus relies on donations to deliver our vision to help people encounter the depth dimension of faith and life, so we are giving those who choose to do so the opportunity to support ChaplaincyPlus with a donation, when booking a place for this event, to enable our work to remain open to all.
