Bulletin 4: Useful resources & learning opportunities

This bulletin contains a round up of useful resources and learning opportunities. 

Volunteering with Meyler Campbell - The NHS needs your help*

*please note, we are not currently accepting any new coaches to this scheme (June 2020)

Yesterday we got in touch with all of our Meyler Campbell graduates and wrote to them to ask for their help in offering their experience and unique skillset to those in the NHS who need it most in the fight against the Covid-19 pandemic. We are at an advanced stage of discussions with NHS England about a pro bono coaching offering for its leaders at this time. We are hoping that as many of you as possible will be able to answer the call to volunteer your expertise. If you are interested in finding out more and how you can volunteer, please contact info@meylercampbell.com and we will send you the full information.

Free your mind
"When it comes to curiosity and creativity, the mind knows no boundaries" - Martin Seligman.
An adaption of what he wrote to his students regarding the current epidemic, Martin encourages them not to let the circumstances interrupt their learning and to free their minds as to what could be possible when freed from conventional routines. Thank you to Meyler Campbell Faculty Member Anna Phillips for sharing.

What your coworkers need right now is compassion
In a recent HBR article, Amy Gallo reminds us that we have been given an opportunity to focus on connection with one another; we are all coping with the current crisis differently and we should be mindful of this; as well as acknowledging our own feelings during this time.
