Women's Leadership: Wellbeing - Drawing on my Resources

Wellbeing - ‘the state of being comfortable, healthy or happy’

With an ageing workforce, organisations are becoming more and more aware of the need to support the wellbeing of their employees to ensure they retain a healthy workforce that delivers optimum performance.

With growing demands on women who often now work in demanding jobs and maintain caring and domestic responsibilities, alongside an upsurge in mental health issues such as anxiety, depression and eating disorders, it has become increasingly relevant to look after your own wellbeing. However, looking after yourself often comes last on your list of priorities. 

Poor wellbeing can have a huge negative impact on a person’s outcomes in life. There is a link between many mental and physical conditions i.e. poor mental health can lead to physical problems and vice versa.  However, good mental health, enables you to think, feel and react in the way you want. So being able to draw on resources to ensure you maintain a balance, is essential for your wellbeing.If you want to be at your best both in work and at home within your family unit, then this seminar is a must for you to ensure you are in total control of your health and wellbeing. 

The day will focus on:

  • What is meant by wellbeing
  • A framework for wellbeing that enables delegates to monitor and manage their own resources
  • Personal values and how to ensure they are met
  • Exploring happiness and what really makes people happy
  • Defining and setting boundaries

By the end of the seminar you will:

  • Be clear on your own resource levels and what you need to do to replenish
  • Identify triggers that compromise your own wellbeing
  • Know how to communicate your own needs and wants
  • Understand your own values and how to ensure they are being met
  • Have an action plan on how to increase your own wellbeing

A follow-up one-to-one coaching session is included which will offer additional support and help you maintain focus and motivation as you implement your actions from the seminar.
