Workplace Integrity infusing Aboriginal Wisdom

In traditional Aboriginal communities, everything was connected. Each person knew their nature, place and purpose. Systems were in place to build integrity.

In today’s busy world everything is still connected. The difference is many people don’t know their nature, place or purpose and there are no structural processes to build integrity into individuals, families and workplaces. Many people feel lost and alone.

We run three levels of training.

Every entry-level employee will need to take the Earth School courses within the WORKPLACE RESILIENCE.

– foundations for life

Applies for all Entry Level Employees.

1.2) Workplace Capacity

A) One Week Training "on country" per year"

This stage is only for people with disadvantaged people. If you do not fall under this category, skip to 1.3 professional Resilience.

– for employees from disadvantaged communities to develop self management skills and interpersonal skills to facilitate a sustainable transition to the workplace. Ideally to start during the final years of high school.

Trans-generational trauma is often an underlying issue that creates disadvantaged families. 

  • Year 1 – Understanding the emotional landscape
  • Year 2 – Connecting to your core nature
  • Year 3 – How to weave the social fabric
  • Year 4 – How to create the universal threads

This is one week every year ‘on country’ to heal and change underlaying beliefs that disadvantaged families often carry. 

B) Ongoing Mentoring

  • Weekly/fortnightly mentoring sessions for the first year – 1 hour
  • Fortnightly/monthly mentoring sessions for the subsequent years 

Additional 1 day programs
Stress management from within

  • Practical visual framework for dealing with stress, anxiety and depression 
  • Understanding the internal ramifications of untreated stress.

Most stress management techniques focus on external solutions e.g. diet and exercise. We focus on internal solutions and actually create new neural pathways to heal the ‘closed loops’ created by an unhealthy mind.

1.3) Professional Resilience

For employees who have recently transitioned to work. This program is designed to build resilience and give workers practical strategies to make informed decisions, and ensure all relationships in the workplace are professional. 

  • Understanding the emotional landscape – decision making
  • Connecting to your core nature – professional interactions

If everything in your life has to be done Right Now, you will be living with stress. Only a life threatening event needs a Right Now response.

So take five minutes Right Now - this may save your life. Close your eyes and remember back to a time when nothing else mattered but you - a time when you were really free - free of parent's disapproval, free of any other person's disapproval, free of any pressure. It may be at a time when you were truly alone and enjoyed it. Or when you were at one with nature, a time when you realise just how insignificant you are within the entire world.

Now think about this moment that you are in right now, the gap in between just then and just now - this is your time.

In between every moment can be your time.

So enjoy this time and slowly over time you may learn how to extend these moments throughout your life.

You will then discover that every moment and between every moment you can enjoy life - when you enjoy life you will find you are no longer stressed and you will be truly free.

 Written by Roslyn Snyder

With these few words I hope to inspire
Although you will still need to perspire
But it will be done with a large smile
and a deep happiness down inside

That bubbles and grows each new day
that makes you want to stand and shout Hey
Look at what I am doing so well
I am climbing out of the depths of hell

To a better life To a better place
A place that I find within myself
That is within me every day
It's free and I don't have to pay

I have grown this place deep inside
That I can visit at any time
When I am sad and overwhelmed
I simply close my eyes and I'm helped

And I have climbed the mountains.
The mountains of doubts and despair
Until I have reached the top where
I am totally full of hope.

In the beginning we get onto a treadmill and believe that it will take us where we want to go. People and circumstances increase the speed gradually and we don't notice. We just begin to jog, then jog faster until we are running. "I must be getting somewhere because I am using a lot of energy" you tell yourself. Then one day something happens and you find yourself thrown of the treadmill. At first you are devastated, but then you discover that outside there are

  • hikes to walk
  • rivers to swim
  • mountains to climb

That use the same amount of energy that you were using on the treadmill but the experiences are so much more enjoyable. If you are off the treadmill for enough time you learn that people who walk, swim, and climb end up where you wanted to be in the beginning and you discover the treadmill is stationary and your movement forward is an illusion

Some people never learn this at all because they never have the opportunity to be off the treadmill - they run until they drop and someone else takes their place on the treadmill. If you find yourself off the treadmill, even for a short while, use this time to learn. Then you can teach your children about hiking, swimming and climbing which is far more enjoyable than using a treadmill.

Keep your goals in mind but enjoy your journey.
