The Workforce Development team have developed a series of bitesize virtual courses for managers and employees to deal with the practical changes to working practices brought about by Covid-19 and maintain and build wellbeing and resilience. This webinar is for managers who are managing remotely. For many of us the workplace has totally transformed with anyone who can working at home and having to adjust to remote working as both a short and long term reality. You may have been using technology to support remote working for a long time but it may be a new prospect for managers to lead teams who are now largely or fully working remotely. In this session we will focus on: the key principles of remote working, the challenges, benefits, and leadership traits of a remote manager, how to support individuals who are feeling a sense of isolation, and how to best use the technology available so that you can make remote working a success.
This interactive and engaging webinar will be facilitated by Deb Parsons and Emma Ford and you will get many of the benefits of attending a face to face session.
A 90 min learning session delivered by an expert in the field of positive psychology that will improve your understanding and enhance your work and personal life! At times of great uncertainty and stress, it is essential that we look after ourselves to the best of our ability. If we don’t look after ourselves we won’t be able to look after others. Being serious about self-care, we give others the permission and inspiration to do the same.
The purpose of this training session is to explore the fascinating world of self-care. To identify the resources we need to look after ourselves and others better. Delivered by Paul Wilson, the course contains insights from positive psychology, the latest findings from the science of wellbeing and the lasting wisdom of ancient philosophy.
What is different about the way Paul Wilson approaches and teaches about self care?
After many years in the mental health and wellbeing field, Paul came to the conclusion that most people know what general practices are good for their wellbeing. They don't usually lack information and opportunities. What they lack is capacity and inclination - so that is where he puts his attention. He focuses upon the 'self' in self-care. He gives people reasons to self-care and then he directs them towards the ways and means. He increases people's capacity and inclination to self-care by offering them perspectives and practices that can improve their self-awareness, self-compassion or self-esteem, for example. Then they are more likely to self-care.
This course is delivered via Zoom. You will be sent a Zoom invite nearer the time.
