Leadership

Why is it important?

The wellbeing of staff is paramount to the productivity and performance of an organisation and a key conduit to achieving wellness are the leaders and managers. Forward-thinking organisations often call on leaders and managers to create mentally healthy workplaces for their employees, and yet it seems that those who are looked upon to create and drive these initiatives often have the poorest wellbeing. How can an organisation be truly happy, healthy and indeed productive, if its managers and leaders are not?

Although we are seeing an increase in organisations investing in the health and wellbeing of their employees - we continue to see the average absenteeism levels across the UK increasing. 

Recent statistics suggest whilst technology has brought great agility and flexibility to the working day- it has also led to:

  • 9 out of 10 people suggesting it’s stopping them from switching off in the evening
  • 6 out of 10 people sited work as their main cause of stress in their life
  • 51% of businesses identified an increase in mental health issues
  • A third reported an increase in stress

We recognise organisations have a part to play in supporting workplace wellbeing but that can not be a substitute for personal responsibility. The Leading Well model addresses both sides of the coin.

Leading Well Programme

Our Leading Well programme has been designed to meet the increasing needs within leadership and management teams to support wellbeing issues, not just by developing their confidence and capability in supporting people effectively but also by getting them to think about their own wellbeing and what it truly means to be happy and healthy in their world.
