Unleash: Wellbeing literacy workshops for leaders

Build wellbeing leadership capability in your business

now is the time to be proactive

When your employees are thriving, they’re able to bring their whole selves to work and perform to their fullest. It unleashes their potential, with huge benefits to both the person and the workplace.

Yet, over and over we’re hearing the same thing – people are exhausted. It’s hard out there and people need real support and meaningful change now.

People leaders are the key to this. Leaders at all levels of the business have the ability to unlock wellbeing and boost sustainable performance across your business.

Research from Gallup emphasised the critical role that managers and leaders play in the effectiveness of wellbeing efforts [1]. While senior leaders set the tone and allocate resources for wellness initiatives, line managers ultimately enable (or deny) direct reports to take part in these efforts.

We also know from the evidence base that a person’s relationship with their immediate manager is one of the biggest determinants of workplace well-being [2].

But just being a ‘good’ leader is not enough [3]. To shift the dial on wellbeing, leaders need to have a high degree of wellbeing literacy.

To address this, we’ve developed Unleash Human Potential, a workshop series to build wellbeing leadership across your business.

There are three workshops, recognising that different levels of leaders need different levels of support and capability building. 

These workshops are based on the many presentations we’ve given to leaders of all levels, and robust evidence on what works.

introducing unleash human potential

Unleash Human Potential is a bold ROW workshop series, designed to fast-track well-being literacy for leaders. Punchy, interactive, and engaging, these workshops are packed with lived experience stories, practical tools and resources, and professional guidance based on the latest research on boosting wellbeing in the workplace.

And while mental health is a key part of the workshop, it’s not the only factor that is addressed. The workshop also covers other key factors including psychosocial safety, building cultures of wellbeing, ways of working, and more.

Crucially, it also addresses the barriers and misconceptions so that leaders can develop deeper self-awareness and greater self-confidence to unleash human potential on a day-to-day basis.
