Watch Nidhi's Reel

Nidhi Tewari at TED

Hi, I'm Nidhi

5 years ago, I was in the midst of a mental health crisis.  My anxiety was through the roof in and out of work, I was burned out and falling behind at my job, and I was utterly devastated with the grief of losing my best friend to cancer. I went from a high achiever to a low achiever because I was burned out.

Now, I am a respected keynote speaker, consultant, and mental health expert on creating healthy, connected workplaces. Corporations and conferences come to me for advice and science-validated tools to improve trust, wellbeing, and retention.

Out of Sight, Out of Mind: Supporting Neurodiversity, Mental Health And Disabilities At Work

Managers and leaders are on the frontline of supporting employee wellbeing in the workplace, but it can be difficult to know what types of assistance may be the most helpful for their teams. Invisible disabilities, such as neurodiversity, mental health conditions, chronic pain disorders, and physical challenges that are unseen, require a trauma and DEI-informed approach.

In this talk, Nidhi will teach attendees how to recognize the signs that an invisible disability may be impacting a team member at work, how to engage in a meaningful dialogue with employees while maintaining boundaries, and how to attune and adapt responses to meet the unique needs of each employee.

Attendees will:

  • Learn tangible signs of how depression, anxiety, trauma, ADHD, chronic pain, and other conditions present in the workplace. For example, trauma can look like people-pleasing, challenges with focus and memory, overworking, difficulties with boundaries, avoidance, and many other behaviors.
  • Understand the concept of attunement and why this skill is vital to connecting empathetically with staff. We will develop self-awareness about how our internal experiences impact interpersonal interactions, and how we can leverage shifting our language, tone of voice, body language, and emotion regulation to connect more deeply.
  • Cultivate an understanding of how to maintain emotional boundaries while supporting employees with their disabilities. We can normalize and validate experiences without becoming someone's therapist, and it's vital to find ways to engage in self-care after emotionally taxing conversations.

Connecting Compassionately: Building Relationship With A Diverse Workforce

Managing and connecting with teams virtually can be challenging in a hybrid world. A computer screen can feel like a physical barrier to relationship building, and miscommunications can happen without all of the cues that we receive in person. The good news is that we can learn the skills to effectively build trust and connect with employees both in person and online.

Nidhi Tewari, clinical therapist, will teach attendees how to build psychological safety, deepen relationships, and maximize outcomes with employees balancing the demands of working remotely and in person.

  • Understand how to maintain and repair relationships that may have been impacted by the shift to remote work. Mistakes are bound to happen in the employee-leader relationship, but it’s the repair that matters.
  • Catalyze improved outcomes and reduce miscommunications by approaching conversations from a place of curiosity. Asking the right questions and knowing how to adapt responses is essential to connecting and supporting diverse staff.

EQ > IQ: The Three Essential Emotional Intelligence Skills

The ability to relate and connect interpersonally at work is becoming a more valued, essential skill than technical know how. An organization’s success is built on the wellbeing and satisfaction of the people working there, and high EQ is the crux of positive wellbeing and belonging.

Emotional intelligence can be cultivated by developing stronger self-awareness, understanding the experiences and biases that we bring into our interactions, and learning how to be agile in the way we approach conversations, especially difficult ones.

This talk will provide attendees with tangible skills to improve self-awareness, strengthen relationships, and employ a people-first approach in order to facilitate positive outcomes in and out of the workplace.
