Helping CMI’s conflict resolution professionals perform on mission
Under constant pressure
Have you ever wondered what conflict resolution professionals’ job looks like? Experts working on CMI projects are constantly confronted with challenges to their own wellbeing. Traveling and rapidly changing situations pose challenges in creating healthy routines. Experts working on projects might travel several times a month and travel days can amount to dozens a year. Some experts also live in areas of varying stability.
Work can put pressure not only on one’s wellbeing but also on private and family life. Controlling one’s own life becomes challenging in a complex environment. CMI was looking for a way to help their professionals cope with the pressure and perform sustainably on mission.
Optimising personal wellbeing and performance
2019 marked the beginning of a unique collaboration between Hintsa and CMI. As the first step, CMI launched their own wellbeing programme with Hintsa. The programme started with Hintsa’s Better Life survey, which was used to assess the current state of CMI professionals’ health and wellbeing. This was followed by three workshops focusing on different aspects of Hintsa’s signature Circle of Better Life model. The workshops in particular focused on practical situations and tips to optimise one’s personal wellbeing and performance under changing circumstances. Towards the end of the programme, a follow-up survey will be conducted to allow CMI staff to see the impact and change in their wellbeing and performance.
The ongoing collaboration will mean joint activities to raise awareness towards sustainable peace and sustainable performance. The first joint event Building Bridges was held at Hotel St. George on 19.11.2019
