a 12-module certificated programme which really digs deep into the understanding of people skills, self-awareness, and emotional intelligence

access now

The very best people managers are those who fully understand themselves and those in their teams.  They are emotionally intelligent individuals who can adapt and change their style and their approach to suit their interactions with different individuals.

These Managers create and establish engagement,
belonging, trust and success - sounds good, right?

Friends in the Lake

Managing others can be the most challenging of roles.  Often, we allow or expect people to do so without equipping them with the skills, knowledge and tools to manage and motivate others well. 

 ​Colleagues who think and work differently to us; colleagues whose standards and behaviours don't match ours; colleagues who seem secretive and who don't share - these can all be challenging situations to deal with and ones that we instinctively shy away from. 

Not so for those who have been through Wellbeing-Led Management training!

In this programme you will learn about people, self awareness, inclusivity, belonging, motivation, emotional intelligence and a wellbeing-first approach to people management.

Each module provides practical tools, specific examples, and actionable insights, enabling participants to really deepen their people knowledge and understanding

Wellbeing Led Management was the right blend of theory, examples, activities and reflection.  And the combination of the learning modules, the workbooks and the following coaching calls really helped me use my learning to the best advantage.  I'm not sure what I was expecting from the course but this was really good.  It made me look at myself and everyone around me in a totally different way.  If you've been a Manager for a little while and. you're looking to really dig-in to that part of your role, this is a brilliant course for you.
