About the Training

NWI’s annual training institute on Kauai will have a “Wellness in the Workplace” theme this year with a conference format where participants will choose from various workshops of interest to them. The topics are based on 20 years of experience of providing wellness in the workplace to tribal and urban communities across North America and beyond. Tools and strategies will be shared that are needed to bring more balance, to boost employee morale and productivity, to bring healthier communication, to better resolve conflict, to integrate self-care and to generally bring more wellness to the workplace.

When we don’t have wellness in the workplace, there are high rates of absenteeism, high staff turnover, low productivity, and words like “negative” and “toxic” are used to describe the workplace. We all deserve a better work experience so that we can better serve the people we are hired to serve.

We hope to see you on Kauai to learn, share, and grow so that you can return to your workplace refreshed and full of ideas to bring positivity and more wellness to the workplace!

A day-long field trip will be included. The field trip is to a local Native Hawaiian farm that is decolonizing the land, bringing back ancestral foods, honoring the ancestors through cultural preservation. Participants will learn about their efforts, assist in working the land, experience Native Hawaiian culture and food. (Please bring clothing that can get dirty, comfortable shoes and rain jacket or umbrella).
