Our working world is increasingly complex and never more so than post the global pandemic. The challenges of dealing with a global ‘always on’ economy, hybrid, and remote working, and the ‘anxiety hangover’ from the pandemic are significant and add to an already heavy workload for people. Anyone who has manager responsibilities not only has to navigate these challenges personally, but also support and enable those they manage to navigate them too. All whilst delivering a high level of performance across their team to meet targets, that are likely increasing as businesses seek to recover from the last couple of years.
Managers who attend this 90 minute workshop will learn:
• The landscape they are managing within: how their actions impact others’ Mental Wealth, the relationship between pressure, performance & Mental Wealth, and the early warning signs of declining wellbeing (in themselves and others).
• Positive prevention: How to create a working environment in a hybrid and remote world, that encourages and enables team members to openly talk about Mental Wealth. Encouraging the team to proactively invest in their own wellbeing and ask for support when needed, without fear of judgement or negative consequences.
• Managing the balancing act: How to maintain an effective balance between business performance and wellbeing. There will be a video case study for learners to watch and then have the opportunity to work in small groups to practice the best outcome in a conversation.
• Proactive support: How to confidently support a team member who is demonstrating the early warning signs of declining wellbeing (including what to say/not say and what stops them having these conversations in practice).
The session will be accompanied with a handbook for reflection purposes, individual activities to work through, and ideas to try out with team members.
