Helping Your Team Thrive at Work – 1 Day Online Workshop (PV259)
Improving Mental Health and Productivity in the Workplace
All our courses from September to December 2020 will be delivered as live, instructor-led sessions online. To register online please scroll down to the Register Online section.
Today, stress-related ailments and other mental issues are the single biggest cause of absenteeism and workplace disability claims. One in six workers will experience depression, anxiety or problems relating to stress at any one time. This workshop will help you identify warning signs in yourself, your colleagues, and those who report to you. It will provide you with strategies for increasing awareness, creating a supportive culture, and identifying resources for your team’s mental health. It will also address the stigma often associated with mental health and how this is often part of the problem in itself.
Learn how to assess the various sources of stress you or your staff may be dealing with, and discover strategies for dealing with each one, including when third party help is advisable.
This is a one-day virtual live workshop.
Space is still available for all course dates listed, unless otherwise noted.
