Keep moving and motivated with #cando
Here at Canaccord Genuity Wealth Management, our priority is the long-term wellbeing of our employees, clients and business contacts.
To try and keep our colleagues happy and healthy while working from home, we created a series of active and mental wellbeing videos, working with the fantastic TeamedUp and their Olympic and Paralympic athletes.
We offer support across a range of themes people have been grappling with during lockdown, including staying motivated, building resilience and managing stress as well as thinking about setting goals and teamwork when you’re working remotely.
We hope they also help to keep you moving and motivated at this uncertain time. Just click on one of the links below to learn more.
How to build resilience
Resilience is a crucial skill to manage adversity and adapt to change. But where does resilience come from? And how can we be intentional about building this critical skill? Watch this video to learn from Lizzie Simmonds’ experience as she developed resilience after coming fourth at the London Olympics.
While short-term stress can be a good thing to help us take action, feel energized and get results, long-term stress can be detrimental. Watch this video to learn more from Olympian Lizzie Simmonds about what causes stress and find some top tips to help reduce its harmful effects.
How can you maintain motivation and purpose through time of change?
At times of change, it can be difficult to stay motivated. When Olympian Lizzie Simmonds retired from elite sport, she learned some valuable lessons around motivation and purpose. To learn more about the three key components of motivation: autonomy, competence and relatedness, watch this this video.
Tips on setting goals to keep you motivated
Whether personal, business or sports-related, goals are important to provide direction and help change our behaviours and habits, particularly if you find yourself lacking direction during times of uncertainty. With goal setting critical for elite athletes, watch this video to learn more about three ways to set goals from Olympian Lizzie Simmonds.
Teamwork is more than working together on a project. It’s about connecting to your teammates, sharing troubles and goals – and it’s all about trust. Watch this video as Olympic hockey team player, Henry Weir explains why “the players who I really believe that have it, tend to do better, tend to stay in the squad for longer and are more successful.”
