In today’s demanding environment, our people can often find themselves being pulled in many different directions – both at home and in the workplace. This can result in employees adopting behaviours that affect their biology making it more challenging to sustain high levels of performance, safety and overall mental health and wellbeing, irrespective of how determined they are!
As people managers, are we guilty of spending too much time pointing out the obvious of what our workforce should be doing instead of figuring out how best to motivate them to do it? How are our leaders best to engage our employees to proactively alter their behaviours to help build resilience and promote mentally healthy workplaces, reduce workplace conflict and sustain a positive culture?
Brad will present key learnings from operating in the workplace wellness industry for over 17 years. Brad will highlight how we can all learn from those very triggers that lead to ‘unhealthy’ lifestyle choices and negative thinking patterns in developing strategies that create long term behaviour change. He will show that relying on our employees’ willpower and simply promoting the benefits of health is not necessarily the answer.
