Stress Management for Managers

This training session is suitable for managers wishing to boost levels of mental health awareness in their workplace as well as explore the challenges of supporting individual members of staff with their wellbeing whilst still needing to oversee management of the team as a whole. This training is offered on a two-hour or half-day basis and can be delivered at your venue.

What participating organisations said:

“There was some great feedback on your session after you left. Not one negative comment and praise in the way you delivered it. I would like to say again thank you for all the effort you put into this thought provoking session and traveling that far to join us. I will come back to you when looking at the annual event which we run sometime in the Autumn / Winter period.”

“We were looking for an external speaker to address our 40 or so Managers and Team Leaders on the topic of mental health as part of our bi-annual HR update training.  Our aim was to raise awareness of mental health issues and to increase Managers’ confidence to handle issues arising in the workplace.  Yvonne Lentge worked with us to design a 2.5 hour session which fulfilled this aim beautifully.  The sessions Yvonne ran were interesting, interactive and very much appreciated by our management community.  Several Managers commented that the insights would be as valuable in their private lives as in covering their managerial responsibilities.  Thank you Richmond Mind!”
