    Taking on the taboo of talking about our feelings

    We bring the curtain down with the fourth session devoted to mental health in the workplace. We’ve all faced a very real yet intangible threat over the last two years and some will have coped better than others or, indeed, in different ways.

    Now some of us are working in a more fluid or atomised structure or, perhaps, have simply resumed the commute, routine and workload as if nothing had happened. What has the impact been on our individual and collective wellbeing?

    We can demonstrate how to assess carefully and approach confidently an area which has been given new urgency in the epilogue of the coronavirus.

    Acknowledging how people might be feeling is, for some organisations, a challenge in itself. We can show you why it may be one of the most valuable ways you can find common ground as you build towards the future.
