Complete Leadership Series – Leading conversations to build resilience

Virtual via Zoom.

What is it about?

These are unprecedented times with conversations dominated by the impact COVID-19 has had on our already stretched systems. We are juggling work and personal lives that are more disruptive, stressful, and ever changing with often increasing demands. This 90-minute leadership session is for anyone who wants to know how to manage sensitive conversations in a way that will be supportive of their teams and colleagues when working under pressure.

As Chartered Psychologists we draw upon current research to share evidence-based practice tips and techniques. As well as hearing from an expert perspective, you will be invited to share experiences in small groups and each commit to an action. By taking your learning back into the workplace you are building your own skills and confidence as well as supporting others.

What will be covered?

During the session we will be:
• Exploring factors that influence an individuals’ ability to manage the challenges of extreme pressure
• Identifying ways to create a safe space for supportive conversations when dealing with individuals who are experiencing symptoms of stress/anxiety/depression/burnout
• Discussing ways to provide feedback and support for staff experiencing symptoms of stress/anxiety/depression/burnout
