The Foundations of Leadership Wellbeing Course

About the course

According to a Harvard Business Review survey (February 2021) the pandemic has resulted in the vast majority of us struggling with general wellbeing—of the nearly 1,500 people surveyed from 46 countries, 89% reported that workplace well-being has negatively changed.

So, what exactly is wellbeing and what can we do about it? This virtual workshop series, The Foundations of Leadership Wellbeing will explore what it means to cultivate wellbeing and its connections to emotional intelligence. It will also share tools and practices for leaders to use, so they can develop their own well-being competencies and bring them to life in their organisational culture. This course is open to leaders or aspiring leaders working with neurodivergent people.
