About the workshop
These are unprecedented times, and the full impact on workplace mental health is yet to be seen. The social landscape of the workplace is changing at lightning speed, and remaining workers are coming to grips with the loss of colleagues and friends to redundancies and stand-downs, and working in relative or total isolation. Outside the office (or the home-office), their opportunities to meet their basic human needs for interaction are dwindling, and feelings of loneliness, hopelessness, stress and anxiety are spiking. No doubt, you may be feeling these things too.
As a leader, you are the caretaker of your team professionally, and in this climate their professional well-being will depend heavily on their personal well-being. And your capacity to support their well-being depends on your ability to maintain your own mental health. Psychologist and workplace mental health expert Anna Feringa has supported the development of psychologically safe workplaces and mentally healthy teams across all industries. Over two mornings Anna will equip you with the skills and knowledge to ensure the health and well-being of your teams through this difficult time.
