This free workshop is brought to you by Business Local.

Given the amount of time we spend at work, the importance of managing wellness at work has never been greater. Understanding how to develop and enhance psychological resilience in yourself and your staff can lead to a happier, healthier, and far more productive team. While you benefit, the bottomline does too.

This course will examine emotional intelligence, resilience and the difference between stress and distress, along with the impact that each has on our workplace wellbeing. It will also explore the importance of establishing and ensuring an appropriate work-life balance, and the positive impact this can have on your performance and your overall job satisfaction. Finally, the course will provide insight into the development and maintenance of positive working relationships, and the power of effective communication. This course is highly practical. Participants will walk away with a personalised tool kit of resources to help them thrive in the workplace. This course is designed for anyone in business interested in learning practical, applicable and useful tools for staying physically and mentally well while navigating the complex world of work.

In this full day workshop, you will be provided with both theory and content; participate in interactive activities; and apply your new skills immediately. The course includes:
* an introduction to psychological resilience and emotional intelligence
* an understanding of the difference between stress and distress
* implementing an appropriate work-life balance
* an understanding of what is ‘workplace bullying’ and how to avoid it
* relationship building, networking and effective communication
