Dr. Marie-Helene Pelletier is an award-winning Leadership and Workplace Mental Health Expert, Psychologist, Advisor and Speaker.
As one of only a handful of work psychologists holding both a PHD and MBA, Dr. Pelletier brings a mix of business and clinical expertise to her talks and client work.
She has led mental health strategy in senior leadership positions for organizations such as Sun Life Financial, a Global 500 company.
Dr. Pelletier has been on the boards of the Canadian Psychological Association and the International Association of Applied Psychology and is an active member of the Global Clinical Practice Network of the World Health Organization.
She possesses a unique ability to translate psychology research about health, performance, and resiliency into strategies that professionals, leaders, and teams need to thrive.
In an era of transformational change, teams and team members are experiencing the impacts in multiple ways. Some impacts are an acceleration of pre-existing trends. And some are new. But one thing is clear – many of these changes are far-reaching.
In this presentation, workplace mental health expert Dr. Pelletier brings together her weekly work as a practicing work psychologist with current research in workplace psychology to challenge your assumptions and help your organization understand these changes at individual, team and organizational levels.
More importantly, she highlights the ways that organizations and individuals can both manage these changes and turn them to an advantage. By approaching this moment in time with curiosity, agility and renewed energy and purpose, we can not only adapt to change, we can thrive.
Are your thoughts helping you or making things worse? For many of us, challenging times can bring thoughts that become our own worst enemy.
In this keynote Dr. Marie-Helene challenges assumptions about how much you can influence your thoughts (and support those around you). The mental short-cuts, cognitive distortions and biases that can often derail our plans and intentions can be influenced. If not, these can lead to bad feelings (for you and others), sub-optimal performance, costly mistakes and missed opportunities.
Being able to pick-up cognitive biases and untangling unhelpful thoughts result in having more clarity, more creativity, more mental agility.
Given the many demands of your role in a culture of often putting others and others’ demands first, it is not surprising that compassion fatigue and burnout represent prevalent occupational and mental health challenges – in all industries. Informed by her psychology, business, and her workplace mental health practice, Dr. Marie-Helene shares both the contextual aspects and the individual opportunities you need to see, so you can set meaningful goals that align with your values and protect your health.
Dynamic events that create transformational changes, whether in the past, present and future, impact business leaders and managers in unique ways. The potential detrimental outcomes, whether it is exhaustion or professional errors, are numerous and significant, and the opportunity is even deeper. What’s your plan?
With her experience as both a business leader and workplace mental health expert, Dr. Marie- Helene shares proven strategies that can boost the resilience, creative power, and mental agility of leaders and managers.
Mental health is everyone’s business – a statement that’s never been truer. Team members and team leaders who take an active role reap benefits that radiate in their work and beyond. When protective factors are activated and resources are utilized, great benefits can be achieved.
In this keynote, Dr. Marie-Helene shares how to balance the day-to-day management and operational responsibilities while establishing a system of best practices that supports better resilience and mental health.
If done right, strategically planning for your resilience can be a game-changer. Yet, with busy schedules and multiple variables, it’s not surprising that most professionals and leaders often just plow ahead without giving their own resilience due attention.
This 90-minute workshop will change that. Through hands-on exercises and discussion, participants will be able to craft a focused personal plan to support their resilience in their life and career.
