Inform I Motivate I Plan I Implement I Review
This online qualification gives leaders everything they need to manage mental health in the workplace in the same way they manage other occupational challenges.
Mental Health is a personal matter and a workplace issue. This qualification gives leaders all of the information and tools they need to include mental health within existing structures.
We all need motivation, sometimes our motivation is to do the right thing for a person. On other occasions, we may need to do what is right for the business.
In some happy coincidences, the best thing for the business is the same as that which is best for the person.
We look at the cost of losing experienced staff against the cost of managing mental health. The data is clear and very motivating.
Realistic planning, having identified clear objectives makes things happen.
Hatching a plan does not come naturally to everyone, it can be learned and, here, we teach.
We have knowledge and a plan. The implementation stage makes all we have planned happen, be that the workplace adjustments already identified, or lifestyle changes. We cover simple models used by leaders to make things happen.
Having set out our plan and our plan of action, we have a quick look to see if we have achieved all that we wished to achieve, if we did, have the actions had the desired effect? If we didn't do all as intended, no matter, we identify barriers, and replan, making sure they are barriers no more.
Our review will also consider the efficacy of the actions taken and will identify additional control measures, should they be needed.

You don't need us to tell you of the benefits of keeping your most experienced staff. You just need a bit of help in making the worklplace meet their changing requirements.
