Forward thinking organisations often call on leaders and managers to create mentally healthy workplaces for their employees, and yet it seems that those who are looked upon to create and drive these initiatives often have the poorest wellbeing. How can an organisation be truly happy, healthy and productive if its managers and leaders are not?
Our Leading Well programme has been designed to meet the increasing needs within leadership and management teams to support wellbeing issues, not just by developing their confidence and capability in supporting people effectively, but also by getting them to think about their own wellbeing and what it truly means to be happy and healthy in their world. Only when we are in control of our own psychological and emotional wellbeing can we start to support the wellbeing of others.
We recently exhibited at the Public Sector Solutions Expo - Manchester and was thrilled to see so many people interested in not only their wellbeing but the wellbeing of others. Alex Elmywood, our Commercial Director along with Jeanette Jackson, from Manchester Stress Institute gave a great talk on 'Is the way your leaders are working, working?' - we will be uploading the talk in full over the next few days, so check back here to see more but for now - here's a quick run through of the day's events.
These figures suggest that employers recognise the importance of prioritising the mental health of their staff but don't necessarily have the capability or confidence to be role models and support people effectively when it comes to people's wellbeing.
The programme may also be complemented by lifestyle and wellbeing coaching delivered on a 1:1 basis (usually up to 5 half hour sessions).
The programme can cater for up to 15 people.
We recognise the sensitive nature of this topic and guarantee our workshops will be delivered within a safe, respectful environment, designed to invigorate, energise and motivate changes on both a personal and professional level.
Funding may be available through the GC Business Growth Hub’s Executive Development Programme (supported by ERDF), which is open to Greater Manchester SMEs. Please enquire for further details on eligibility.
