About this Event

In these times of unprecedented uncertainty, colleagues across the sector have had to respond to significant changes to their own workloads, approaches and environments. Leaders and managers whilst being personally affected by these changes have had to support their colleagues and lead the way into unchartered territory. This webinar will provide managers with an opportunity to take stock and reflect on the impact of these changes on their teams and themselves and consider practical tools to enhance the engagement of their team members and improve their resilience and effectiveness.

Who is it for?

This session is relevant to managers looking for tools and approaches to help lead teams through times of uncertainty and change.

2. Recognise their role in supporting colleagues through periods of uncertainty

3. Consider ways to improve wellbeing and resilience of colleagues
