Mental health awareness for leaders training
Human Resources is offering Mental Health Awareness for Leaders at 10 a.m., Wednesday, Oct. 12, 2022.
Managing individuals who may be struggling with stress, anxiety, depression and other
mental health concerns can be a difficult balancing act. Your role is to manage performance
and to bring out the best in your workforce, but accomplishing this often requires
you to express concern and support when employees struggle emotionally. Managers often
feel uncomfortable in this aspect of their role and may lack the important skills
of “emotional management.” This course covers ways employees may present their distress
and offers insights and strategies on forging supportive empathic alliances within
the role of manager.
The session also identifies common mistakes managers make in responding to employees in distress and explains communication skills that express support and convey positive expectancy. Participants are also given information on how to refer employees to the Employee Assistance Program.
