This introductory workshop is designed to help managers and leaders to recognise and respond appropriately to mental health issues in the workplace. By teaching leaders the appropriate skills, we help them become more confident in managing workplace mental health issues within their teams and amongst their colleagues.
This practical session will equip people leaders with strategies and build their capacity to lead their team through the uncertainty of rapidly changing, increasingly demanding modern workplaces. The evidence-base has shown that training needs to go beyond building the resilience of individuals to enable leaders to manage for growth, shared purpose, safety, collaboration, and cross-connectivity; all key team-based outcomes.
You can’t build resilient teams without resilient leaders. That’s why resilience is among the most important skills for leaders at all levels to master. It’s not about avoiding difficulty and stress — that’s nearly impossible. Rather, the question is, how do you face it?
This practical one-hour masterclass will build your capacity to lead your team through the uncertainty of rapidly changing, increasingly demanding, modern workplaces. You’ll gain actionable takeaways to enhance your leadership capabilities and support your team through change and adversity while looking after yourself.
Work is a big part of our daily lives and can help to prevent mental ill-health by giving us a feeling of purpose and a sense of contribution.

This session will highlight the organisational structures that can create a more positive and supportive work environment.
This introductory workshop is the ideal starting point for organisations looking to increase employee awareness and promote a general understanding of mental illness. Our mental health is not fixed.

The skills are easy to apply, memorable, and applicable beyond the workplace setting.

This session will focus on what you can do to regain your balance and feel positive and hopeful again.
