Harriet Tinka, Turning Point Expert
Mental health well-being is not just the mere absence of illness at work. It is about the healthy and prosperous functioning of teachers at work. Don’t we all want to have a positive relationship with others? Well-being is linked to a positive relationship between students, teachers, and families.
Teachers are the link to students. They support students emotionally, socially, and academically. Harriet is an expert at redirecting audiences to focus on their happiness and well-being.
Teachers are the emotional piggy bank for students. They can see more than 40 students a day. They can face secondary trauma and compassion fatigue. Their souls get weighed down.
Teachers’ self-esteem impacts the student learning process. What happens when the link or chain is too weak to link the students? Teachers also need help holding that stapler.
Harriet will show the audience how motivated individuals build their self-esteem and happiness well. She will focus on the qualitative study and approaches to motivation for teachers and their students and optimize their teaching performance.
Educators always leave inspired with a powerful reminder of why education is a vocation of choice.
While attending university, Harriet befriended a fellow student having no idea that his attraction to her was a psychological trap disguised as the “love” that would later turn deadly. As she got to know him, he became abusive, full of anger to the point where she got a restraining order against him. Angered by that, he one day kidnapped her, stabbed her, and left her for dead. It was during her physiotherapy appointment that she had a turning point. She describes her life as coming from tragic to magic. Harriet will share:
Harriet gives hope to women facing domestic violence. Audiences will leave with hope and a feeling of a new beginning.
Harriet always thought of herself as the relentless, rigid, and resilient type. Then she went through a series of challenges. There were moments Harriet had no joy in her life. She lost interest in doing things she enjoyed and didn’t know why. She will share her experiences and how she got through the ordeal. Audiences will leave feeling hopeful and knowing they are not alone.
When you fail, find your new normal. Failure is an event.
If friends, relationships, or a job have betrayed you, you know that you must move beyond those emotional events. How do you stay standing when you get a pink slip? Your whole world changes with that piece of paper.
The litmus test for success is how you treat failure. When we fail, we often say, “oh well, I guess it wasn’t meant to be,” or “there is always next year.” Failure is a vehicle to your success. Just keep driving, hit a few bumps, and eventually, you will find your way. Harriet will share ways to embrace failure and move forward.
