Progressive leaders & business owners can make a difference
Support for mental health, wellness and burnout are workplace issues. 47% of working Canadians agree that their work is the most stressful part of their day and 16% of working Canadians say their workplace is a frequent or ongoing source of feelings of depression, anxiety or other mental illness.
You can work to ensure that your workplace is building a positive, mentally well environment for your team.
Why should we care about burnout?
Unaddressed burnout can result in many factors that impact a workplace including increased absenteeism, decreased productivity, poor workplace morale, breakdown of communication, increased risk of safety incidents and accidents and increased employee turnover.
Mental wellness affects your bottom line
Mental health problems are the leading cause of workplace disability in Canada, representing 15% of Canada's burden of diseases. Depression and anxiety disorders result in more workdays lost than any other medical condition.
This training helps you build your leadership skills in psychological safety, burnout prevention and gain a greater understanding of mental well being at work
"65% of managers
say they could do their jobs more effectively
if they found ways to more easily
manage distressed employees."

Key Learning Objectives
Build A Team That's Working to Prevent Burnout
You will leave training with a clear understanding of the signs and causes of burnout in the workplace. PLUS, practical tools that you can implement right away with your team to help them reduce stress and prevent burnout.
Leader Assessment & 1-1 Support
Unlike other training programs this learning opportunity includes a personalized leader assessment + 1-1 calls with Alison for individualized support as you work on implementing with your team and in your workplace.
Build Psychological Safety With Your Team
You will use group case studies and scenarios to better understand psychological safety at work.
Practice skills that will help you
- build trust with your team
- improve team and organizational culture.
- ensure all team members feel included, supported and safe.
This leads to better mental health and well being outcomes at work and helps to reduce sick leave, stress leave and "presenteeism" with your team.
Leading by example is an important piece of this program. A part of every training session will focus on skills to support your own mental well being and create better work-life balance.
Build Trust With Your Team
Through interactive and practical activities you will learn new skills to bring back to your workplace including.
How to build trust in 1-1 conversations.
How to build trust in team meetings.
How to improve your empathy and listening skills during communication.
Practice Your Skills
By delivering training over a period of 4 months (1 session per month) we are creating space for you to practice and implement skills with your team and get support to make any necessary changes instead of trying to figure it out all on your own.
