The work of a modern-day leader is challenging and complex at the best of times. However, when a team member is struggling to manage the impact of poor mental health and wellbeing, things can rapidly deteriorate affecting performance, safety, attendance, and engagement. In today’s leadership environment, it is no longer acceptable to simply dismiss these as “personal problems” or hope that they simply “resolve with time”. Today’s leaders need to be proactive, empathic, and approachable. They need to possess the skills to recognise their team member is struggling, respond with a caring and empathic approach and refer for professional support. Additionally, forward-thinking leaders need to prepare their teams for tomorrows challenges by building resilient team members who proactively confront challenges, engage support, and confidently work through the problem building capability and developing competence as they go.
This workshop has been designed to support leaders to understand their role addressing psychological impacts in the workplace and prepare their teams for future challenges.
Leaders will be introduced to key models to understand determinants of mental wellbeing and resilience and will also be provided with a simple framework for engaging in critical conversations to address mental health concerns in the workplace. Each participant will be able to clearly identify and commit to key strategies that will make a difference in their own lives, both at work and at home. Participants will also be able to identify strategies for building resilience in the members of their team and to support them in moving forward confidently in difficult times.
