What do you get?
Certificate of Attendance
A person’s direct line manager has a large influence over their wellbeing at work, as well setting the tone for creating a psychologically safe work-place environment. Yet many managers feel uncertain about how to handle sensitive conversations, even when they spot signs that someone is struggling with their mental wellbeing.
They are often concerned that they’re not an expert in wellbeing issues and therefore feel they may be ill equipped to handle what may arise in a sensitive conversation.
This course will help attendees feel more confident in handling sensitive conversations and relieved to discover they don’t have know all the answers!
