Mental Health At Work 

Employees with poor mental health - who feel anxious, depressed or constantly angry, don’t perform well.  

This workshop gives managers the skills and confidence to recognise the early warning signs of mental ill health. This helps managers support the mental wellbeing of their teams,  and so building a resilient and positive work environment.

Building & Leading Inclusive Teams

We all have different opinions, personalities and backgrounds.  Men are different to women. We all come from different cultures  -  these can be related to the country in which we were born, our social 
class or our religious beliefs.  We bring this difference to the teams in which we work.   When these differences are acknowledged and valued, people feel included and this is what adds value to the business. When differences are ignored, dismissed or devalued people feel rejected and healthy debate turns into unhealthy and destructive conflict.

 

Psychologists have found that when differences in business teams are managed badly the teams underperform and lack engagement. However, when differences and conflict in  teams are managed well these teams out perform all others.

Creating Resilience

Some jobs are just hard!  

 

People who do hard jobs are at an increased risk of developing work related mental health problems like stress, anxiety or depression.

 

Feeling pressured to do more and more, fit more and more into your day?  This steady and relentless 'drip, drip, drip' effect day in and day out, can cause demoralisation, pessimism and apathy.  This can have serious consequences for your physical and mental wellbeing; increasing the risk of burnout, and mental health related sickness absence.

 

This can ultimately result in you leaving altogether.
