Webinar: Leading Mental Wellbeing
“Check your emotions at the door” has been a longstanding practice in most workplace cultures.
It’s time for that to end.
The spike in mental health issues, from stress and burnout to depression, anxiety, and even suicide, is a problem that is too big to ignore. So, how do we meaningfully tackle the taboo topic of mental health at work? And, what is the role that leaders—particularly managers—play in proactively addressing the issue?
In this webinar, founder and CEO of Motion Infusion, Laura Putnam, outlines a strategy for engaging leaders and managers in leading mental wellbeing initiatives, based on a two-year “Leading Mental Wellbeing” program currently being conducted with 200 companies across a variety of industries.
During this webinar, you will learn:
The four key roles within the workplace in leading mental wellbeing
How to reposition the issue of addressing mental health in the workplace as a cultural issue, not just an individual one
- How to engage leaders, especially managers, in leading mental wellbeing
