Training for managers
Management training: Reducing stress in your teams
59% of the UK workforce do not feel that their organisation does enough to support wellbeing in the workplace. Often staff do not feel comfortable disclosing their mental ill health or stress levels to their manager. This workshop is designed to support managers in improving staff wellbeing outcomes. Managers will have time to think about their own health too, so that they can be in the best possible position to lead and support their team.
We will cover mental health awareness, identifying and reducing stress, building resilience, managerial duty of care, stress risk assessments, making reasonable adjustments, how to have sensitive conversations and motivating behaviour change.
Management training: Supporting staff through changes in the workplace
33% of those who experienced mental ill health due to work cited the cause as organisational change being handled poorly. Organisations often have to implement changes to improve their service and stay relevant in today’s fast moving society, however change is not always easy for staff. Managers are also under pressure implementing these changes whilst handling difficult conversations with their staff.
This workshop aims to equip managers with the tools they need to support their team during periods of transition. They will understand people’s negative responses and implement changes in a constructive way. We will cover topics such as motivational interviewing and ways to support, engage and motivate your team.
