Emotional Well-being in the Workplace

Employee health and well-being is steadily rising up the business agenda as more employers recognise the benefits and contribution that can be made by introducing workplace health and well-being policies.

Traditionally your Intelligence Quotient (IQ) was thought to be the whole story on how intelligent you are. Years of research and experience tells us that this is not the whole picture. Something more is needed. At a minimum, employees need a degree of self-knowledge and self-control, the ability to stay motivated and face setbacks, and ‘people skills’. Stress is also much more widely recognised as a key factor in employee well-being, and the practice of mindfulness is fast becoming widely used in workplaces around the world, as a way of managing emotions and reducing stress and anxiety.

This one day programme introduces participants to the concepts of Emotional Intelligence, Stress Management and Mindfulness, and their capacity to reduce stress and improve emotional well-being in the workplace.
