As a leader of people, I want my team to be mentally healthy and able to share with me or someone else if they feel they are struggling. Sometimes I am unsure where the line is in a work setting between concern and interfering or between a managers responsibility and intrusive insensitive busy body.
As a manager, I don’t want to assume changes in performance has anything to do with a mental illness, but what if it does?
I consider myself fairly well informed when it comes to many forms of diversity and inclusion. I openly admit though that mental health is an area I lack expertise. Given my role in EEON I am fortunate enough to be able to create an opportunity to fill in the blanks for me and if you have the same blanks – for you too.
EEON (Equal Employment Opportunity Network) is hosting a lunch seminar on how to create a mentally healthy workplace. This seminar, based in Melbourne, will suit business leaders, managers, HR or D & I practitioners. If you then want to pursue more training or gain more in-depth knowledge, beyond blue will provide access to amazing resources.
Details of the seminar are below. To attend is only $50 which includes lunch – well worth the investment. Click on this link to book your place. http://bit.ly/2ruzTXQ Spaces are limited.
