Driving Wellbeing Through Leadership

2- day | Thursdays, 7 and 14 April 2022 | 10am – 2pm AEST | Online

Training Overview

Supporting mental health, wellbeing and resilience through holistic workplace strategies

It is often presumed that an employee’s mental illness is mostly caused by factors outside of the workplace. However, a particular work environment or a workplace incident can cause considerable stress and exacerbate, or contribute to, the development of mental illness.

As we navigate the changing boundaries of work and home life, it has become crucial for organisations to support the wellbeing of their employees both in the workplace and beyond.

Through an innovative mix of lecture-style presentations, interactive group exercises, and expert feedback, the Driving Wellbeing Through Leadership online training session will allow participants to increase organisational agility, streamline processes and implement modern wellbeing programs.

Participants will leave with both theoretical and practical knowledge, as well as implementable strategies, they can embed in future projects and share
with their multidisciplinary teams.
