Virtual workshops and digital learning for Mental Health Awareness Week

Mental health awareness

Here at Laughology, we have been at the forefront of supporting positive mental health at work.  So we’re not just supporting you with content for Mental Health Awareness Week, but for the rest of the month.  Starting from 18th May, we will be sharing our next learning burst series all about mental health at work.  Here’s what we have planned:

How to support people back to work after Covid-19

With some green shoots starting to appear, there is some optimism about returning to work and normality starting to form. There is also (understandably) some real concern and anxieties. 

There will need to be sensitive conversations that support and consider the mental and physical well-being of people back to work.  Managers will need to guide, lead, and communicate in a way that helps people feel psychologically safe and creates direction, this will be key for motivating people and teams.  People skills will be crucial for managers as the UK plans for an eventual return to the workplace.  CIPD’s Peter Cheese said it well when he stated there are three important questions to ask before people return to work:  Is it essential? Is it safe? Is it mutually agreeable?

To support managers and teams, Laughology has put together a two-part programme for managers and leaders in how to create psychologically safe environments, virtually and physically.  The two-part programme covers skills for communicating in extraordinary times, supporting teams to be flexible and agile while protecting mental health and wellbeing.  The course will have cheat sheets with practical tips, activity sheets for working teams and a Work Ready Action Plan (WRAP) guide to download and use with individuals and teams.   You can find out more here

Remote Working, Learning and Development - Tips and Techniques

As the corona virus continues to spread, increasing numbers of people are working remotely from home. Some are self-isolating. And, as we write this, it seems increasingly likely that, during the coming weeks, the government will put in more stringent measures to further curtail movement. As a result of these circumstances, many concerned businesses find themselves in uncharted waters.
