Managing Wellbeing Training

This course helps managers understand and identify factors which affect the vulnerability of their staff and take practical action, using tools and frameworks, to minimise potential risks and enhance wellbeing and satisfaction in the workplace.

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 wellbeing).  It has been developed around a practical framework, that managers can use to improve the wellbeing of individuals who work for them.

The course covers the following four factors, each of which has an influence on an individual’s wellbeing 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 positive actions to enhance wellbeing at work, participants have commented on how they feel more confident and energised after attending the course.

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.
