Courageous Conversations and how to have them
As the focus on wellbeing in the workplace continues to gain momentum and conversations around mental health are encouraged, it can be tricky for managers to know what they can ask individuals, and what’s off limits when it comes to mental illness.
It can be one thing to be courageous in tackling mental illness and another to ask great questions that lead to great outcomes.
This can potentially result in managers shying away from asking relevant questions about mental illness or not tackling the topic at all for worry their questions may seem intrusive, or simply not knowing where to start.
So how do you have a courageous conversation about mental illness?
Come along to this seminar to….
- Learn how solution focused questions can transform a conversation
- Understand the boundaries of personal questions when tackling mental illness in the workplace
- Gain views and advice from fellow HR professionals of their experience
- Help you identify what your managers need to have great conversations around mental health
