Management of Wellbeing Training

A course to provide managers with the knowledge and skills they require to improve the wellbeing of their staff while they are at work.
After attending the course, managers should be able to construct action plans to minimise risk and enhance wellbeing and satisfaction at work.

Our training courses are currently being delivered in a live, virtual, interactive format, in addition to onsite face-to-face training where appropriate. All of our training is delivered by experienced subject experts.

Course Context

This managing wellbeing training course increases awareness and understanding of the early warning signs of increased vulnerability (stress and poor mental well-being).  It has been developed around a practical framework, that managers can use to improve the well-being of individuals who work for them.

The course covers the following four factors, each of which has an influence on an individual’s well-being at work:

  • Their work pressures and demands
  • Their individual characteristics e.g. personality, behaviours, preferences
  • The characteristics of that individual’s line manager e.g. perceived management style, competences
  • Their personal circumstances e.g. significant life events

The framework used in the course has been developed and refined to ensure it is easily understood and applied in the workplace setting.  By focusing on the positive actions managers can take to enhance wellbeing at work for their staff, participants have commented on how interesting and energising they found it.

The course is highly interactive and contains a variety of group and individual exercises, including case studies, scenarios, questionnaires, group discussion, personal reflection and action planning.

Duration: 1-day face-to-face course or virtually over two shorter sessions.  We can also deliver a condensed version; please contact us for more details.

Format: Virtual, live, interactive session or face-to-face where possible.

Delegate numbers: Please contact us to discuss optimum numbers.

Please contact us for information regarding availability and how we can tailor this training to meet your organisation’s requirements.   Specific course objectives can be discussed with the Trainer, and the course content can be adapted to reflect the impact of COVID-19 on the wellbeing of the delegates.
