Returning to the Office: Supporting the Leaders Who Support Your People

Empathy is an essential leadership skill. Organizations must provide their leaders with the tools and skills they need so that they are confident and comfortable having conversations on mental health and well-being.

Here’s What You Will Learn

Over the past 18+ months, our society has dealt with more than just the pandemic. Societal and racial injustices, election stress, unemployment and the economic downturn have impacted individuals. No one has been immune.

Now we are in the middle of a mental health awakening and many of the barriers to getting help that once stood in the way are being torn down. As we continue to experience change in the workplace, our leaders need to be able to support themselves so that they can be at their best for their people.

In this webinar, you will understand:

  • The state of mental health in our society and its impact in the workplace
  • How empathy has become an essential leadership skill
  • The importance of building a culture of resiliency in which it’s OK to not be OK
  • The role of self-care and how leaders can model it to their people
