    July Program

    "On-The-Job Stress Relief"



    Kathy Willis
    Director of Workforce Education, Solutions and Safety Training at Lewis and Clark Community College

    Everyone experiences stress, yet some handle it better than others.  And stress isn’t always negative.  The pressure of deadlines, for example, can drive positive actions.  Therefore, a brief review of biochemistry regarding cortisol and Amygdala Hijackings will enable participants to better understand the stress relief techniques to be discussed.

    Stress triggers in our private lives can be controlled from spilling into our professional environment. These include personal situations such as divorce, birth of a child, loss of a loved one, moving, medical concerns and many others.  Participants will practice the mindfulness technique of “deep breathing” coupled with “bookmarking” to minimize such stressors so that they don’t carry into the workplace.

    The remainder of the discussion will be additional relief techniques for on-the-job stress such as certain customer interactions, project management and deadline stress, and physical space/equipment ergonomics.  The “Stay or Go” stress assessment tool will be used with its stress management techniques.  Those for “Stay” are:

    • Visioneering
    • Dealing
    • Segmenting

    Those for “Go” are:

    • Reframing
    • Pigeon-holing
    • Hydrating
    • Neck rolling
    • Eye exercising

    Kathy Willis is Director, Workforce Education, Solutions & Safety Training at Lewis and Clark Community College, and has served on the boards for weTRaIN and IMS.  Willis has instructed management courses for the Riverbend Growth Association, CNB, Motorola, and Procter and Gamble, among many others.  She has also been a featured speaker for the St. Louis chapters of ASTD, ISPI, AAIM, The Safety Council of Greater St. Louis, and The National Arthritis Foundation’s annual convention.  Willis has been published by ASTD Sourcebooks, and previously held positions with Maritz Learning, General Dynamics, Wells Fargo, Perry Oceanographics, and BJC’s Leadership Institute.

    August Presentation

     “What's a Photo Without the Story?
    How to Create Your Family Legacy


    Hazel Thornton
    NAPO Emeritus Member

    Think you don’t have stories to tell?

    Of course you do. Everyone does! 

    In this talk you will learn why (and how) you (and your clients) can:

    • Tell your family stories
    • Enhance your stories by adding photos and details
    • Identify mystery photos & investigate family legends
    • Dig deeper & climb higher on your family tree
    • Tell the stories of your things, too
    • Leave a legacy, not a burden

    Hazel Thornton is an author, genealogist, and NAPO Emeritus Member who loves helping others to discover and tell the stories of their photos, families, and things.

    During her professional organizing career, she decluttered homes and offices and created organizing systems and ideal schedules. But it was photo organizing that rekindled her love of genealogy research. She also became interested in end-of-life matters, which include downsizing and making decisions now, so your loved ones won’t have to later. All of these experiences and interests dovetailed in the form of her 2021 book, What’s a Photo Without the Story? How to Create Your Family LegacyAnd now she’s working on a workbook called Go With the Flow: The Clutter-Clearing Tool Kit for an Organized Life, featuring her original Clutter Flow Charts.

    Hazel’s qualifications include 3 decades of genealogy research experience; 15 years of organizing clients’ stuff, space, and time (in person and virtually); formal education in mechanical engineering, drafting, and fine arts; and more than 20 years as a technology planner at a large telecommunications company.
