Emergent WorkForce™ Curriculum
3-day Program

Important note:

The following is a description of the typical curriculum offered to our participants. It must be noted that there is a degree of flexibility in the program. Our objective in presenting the Emergent WorkForce™ program is to best support the needs of those attending, and we may place greater or lessor emphasis on specific modules to satisfy that need..

PROGRAM OVERVIEW

Allotted Time: ½ hour

We begin with a brief introduction to the program. This will include the format of the learning experiences, simple ground rules, and expectations.

Each day begins with a review of the prior session, as well as a sharing of the outcomes and learning from the exercises that participants complete between sessions.

THE SCIENCE OF SOUND

Allotted Time: ½ hour

The Science of Sound is an explanation of how sound works, and why it is such a powerful tool to support your health and well-being.

Because the focus of this module is on our individual responses to sound and music, much of the theory will be covered in an accompanying video for those who are interested in learning more of the science.

Online resources:

  • Science of Sound Video

LISTEN FROM THE INSIDE OUT

Allotted Time: 1 hour

We tend to dismiss the effects of sound and music, because we are consistently bombarded with it, from traffic and construction noise to the sounds in the office, to the sounds of nature when out for a walk. This is called habituation, and is part of our natural defense mechanisms.

This module is about expanding awareness of the impact that sound has on us. It is only by listening and assessing a particular sound, and it’s effect on us: mentally – physically – emotionally – spiritually, that can we discern what supports us, and what doesn’t.

The Sound Wellness Triple-I System™ will be introduced, and participants will use this tool to evaluate their experience throughout the program, and beyond. The Triple-I System stands for Investigate, Implement, and Integrate.

Integration Benefits:

  • understanding and application of the Sound Wellness Triple-I System™. Participants will be able to gauge the impact of sounds and music, with the ability to assess what supports, and, even more important, what doesn’t.
  • expansion of observation skills.
  • expanded awareness to how sound is experienced.
  • understanding of the uniqueness of our response.

SECONDS TO A HEALTHY CYCLE

Allotted Time: 2 hours

The Nitric Oxide cycle is one of the most important natural cycles in our bodies, supporting our immune system, the digestive tract, and the cardiovascular system. Nitric oxide moleculeHowever, it can be easily suppressed by stress, by fatigue, or illness, with short term and long term consequences.

Scientific study has validated that specific frequencies of sound can stimulate this vital process in our cells, supporting overall health and well-being. One of the most powerful of these frequencies is reproduced by the Perfect 5th tuning forks which can stimulate the nitric oxide cycle, in less than 30 seconds.

This segment will explore the science and the use of this simple tool. Because it is so important, each participant will be gifted with a set of the Perfect 5th tuning forks for their own use.

Integration Benefits:

  • The importance of the cellular nitric oxide cycle to overall health and well-being.
  • Simple methods to reinforce the natural nitric oxide cycle, reducing of effects of stress.
  • How to correctly activate and use the Perfect 5th forks to gain maximum benefit.

BUILDING RESILIENCE

Allotted Time: 2 hours

Based on the principals of HeartMath®, participants will explore how the autonomic nervous system behaves under stress, and understanding that, they will develop the ability to tune into their body to head-off the stress response.

Most of us are unaware of when we are stressed. Others wear stress as a “badge of honour”. Neither of these support us. This module will focus on two coherence building techniques that arrest the stress response and improve the ability to maintain composure under stress.

Learning Outcomes:

  • to understand how the autonomic nervous system responds to stress.
  • to be able to recognize when the stress response is occurring.
  • to be able to shut down the stress response as it’s building.

FROM DEPLETION TO RENEWAL

Allotted Time: 2 hours

This module builds on the learning and experiences of the ‘Building Resilience’ module with understanding the connection between the stress response and hormone production and the link between emotions and ‘personal magnetism’.

Learning Outcomes:

  • The connection between the stress response and hormone production.
  • Link between emotions and ‘personal magnetism’.

Practical techniques are explored to create personal breakthroughs in managing relationships, improving personal outlook in life and improving individual performance.

DISCOVER MINDFULNESS

Allotted Time: 2 hours

Mindfulness is a proven way to reduce stress and improve health (physical, emotional and mental), thereby reducing absenteeism and presenteeism. In this interactive session you’ll discover what mindfulness is and how it works. You’ll also learn simple, effective mindfulness tools – such as meditative and breathing techniques to increase Presence, Calm, Focus and Performance – and have some fun! Over thirty years of research show Mindfulness benefits to also include Reduced Anxiety and Depression, Improved Attitudes and Strengthened Relationships.

The Mindfulness segment of our Sound Wellness training provides effective tools and techniques to help you incorporate Mindfulness (defined as being fully present to the moment in non-judgmental awareness) into all aspects of your personal and professional life to feel calmer, more relaxed, yet focused, and enrich your interpersonal relations.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Reduced Stress, Anxiety and Depression
  • Increased Clarity and Focus
  • Improved Attitudes and Behaviors
  • Increased Motivation to make Lifestyle Changes
  • Improved Performance

IMPROVING INTER-PERSONAL RELATIONSHIPS WITH MINDFULNESS

Allotted Time: 2 hours

This module builds on the learning and experiences of the ‘Discovering Mindfulness” module as we delve deeper into mindfulness practices that help us understand how we can improve communications by being mindful in our interactions with others.

Learn simple tips that make a big difference… and create a more peaceful, co-operative environment in your workplace.

Learning Outcomes:

  • heightened awareness of how the way we communicate affects the others
  • learn techniques to communicate effectively, gaining greater co-operation and support.

PERCEPTUAL INTELLIGENCE

Allotted Time: 1½ hours

Our vision is distorted by the colour of our sunglassesWe all have our own perceptions. It has been said that there is no one truth for our individual truths have been coloured by our perceptions and beliefs, our upbringing and past experience – just as our vision is coloured when wearing a pair of sunglasses.

This module is an awakening to our perceptual filters, and explores ways to understand how perceptual filters affect communication – opening the door to kindness, wisdom and compassion.

This is the foundation for those working with others, as it opens an individual to recognizing, and even expecting different points of view.

Learning Outcomes:

  • investigation of sensory perception and how perceptual filters affect us.
  • understanding how our perception is filtered by beliefs is the beginning of wisdom.
  • creating clarity of perception and its role in communication.

THE POWER OF THE VOICE

Allotted Time: 1½ hour

ahhhhh!One of the most powerful sounds that we have at our disposal is our own voice. In this module, we explore the natural voice of the body by using every-day sounds like a sigh, or an ahhh, or ohhh. These sounds stimulate the release of endorphins that helps the body manage pain and heal.

Using the voice in specific ways literally gives your entire being a sonic massage from the inside out. It massages every cell of your body into harmony and balance, calms the emotions, and aligns you with purpose.

Learning Outcomes:

  • expansion of awareness in how the voice affects us as it goes through us.
  • investigation of tone of voice and how the voice heals.
  • implementation of several ways to use the voice to stimulate the natural healing ability of the body.

AN EXERCISE IN GRATITUDE

Allotted Time: 1½ hour

Grateful for everything the day bringsOne of the guiding principles for the Emergent WorkForce™ program is to raise the collective energy such that each person is in the right space and the right mindset to seek their highest potential.

Much of our angst, our negativity, depression, and even much of our own self esteem, comes from our perceptions. This segment is about observing and understanding those perceptions through the eyes of perceptual intelligence. It’s very easy to cling to the negative, while setting aside all the positives that influence us every day. In this segment, participants investigate the power of gratitude to shift perception resulting in a complete shift of emotional state.

Learning Outcomes:

  • investigation of what participants are grateful for in each of eight different areas of life.
  • implementation of the list during times of challenge throughout the next month.
  • expansion of ability in managing emotions with a powerful re-framing tool.

RECLAIM THE BRAIN

Allotted Time: 2 hours

Connecting the left and right hemispheres of the brainBrainwave entrainment is a thousands of years old practice.

The left hemisphere of the brain is associated with logic and speech, while the right hemisphere is associated with emotions and creativity. Research has demonstrated that using entrainment frequencies enhances the capacity of the brain by synchronizing the hemispheres. This expands a person’s abilities and talents, and supports physical well-being, while reducing the body’s response to stress.

Coupled with the right sounds and music, brainwave entrainment can be a great tool to improve focus and concentration, enhance creativity, promote learning, and more.

Learning Outcomes:

  • observation and awareness of 3 main brainwave states – Beta, Alpha, Theta.
  • application and experience of how music can be used purposefully to stimulate specific brainwave states for a tool to enhance focus and flexible, creative thinking.
  • exploration of uniqueness of response.

ENGINEERED MUSIC

Allotted Time: 1½ hour

This module delves into the use of Applied Psychoacoustic Music. Don’t be intimidated by the name. Psychoacoustics is simply the study of the effect that sound and music has on us. Applied Psychoacoustic Music is the application of that knowledge in designing music to create specific results. This is essentially engineered music, designed to aid sleep, increase focus and concentration, heighten creativity, and more.

Learning Outcomes:

  • the understanding and experience of entrainment – the interdependence of the heartbeat, of breathing and of the brainwave state.
  • application of how this type of music can be used purposefully in everyday life.
