A Day in the Life of CDI’s Restorative Practices Programme Manager, Claire Casey!
Starting our New Year with some insights shared by our CDI staff…
Meeting inspiring people, delivering training, and chairing meetings—every day is different! Avoiding rush hour, I start at 10am, greeted by tea from my amazing colleague George!
Living my values of love, connection, and fairness positively impact lives. Contributing to improved well-being and creating a just and peaceful world. What could be better than that?
What Makes My Job Easier
Fantastic colleagues, a gorgeous office setting (did you know we have goats!), and a commitment to quality and inclusive processes. Expertise in business, communications, research and increased admin support have made my job far easier.
Prioritise, flag emails, plan during supervision, and regular check-ins with CEO and George. Outlook calendar and a paper diary keep me on track. I’m not afraid to ask for help! 🗓️
Consistency in completing ‘boring’ tasks is challenging. Reminders and support from the CEO and colleagues help. Starting new projects? Advice and support from the team are invaluable.
Best Part of the Job
Doing what I love, with people I respect and can count on
I received a call from a Guidance Counsellor who resolved a bullying incident through our Restorative Practices Course. Another parent inquired about training; their child was happier at school and had improved conflict resolution. I am delighted by positive transformations and heartwarming feedback
