This new session is open to any member of staff who has supervisory responsibility, and is interested in developing their compassionate leadership skills.

Find out how you can adapt your leadership style to help those around you flourish during times of uncertainty. As some staff start to return to the office and others continue to work from home we are all going through another phase of adjustment. If you have supervisory responsibilities, or you work with staff across the organisation, you can support people’s wellbeing by developing your compassionate leadership skills.

The session will be give you valuable time away from emails and day to day work, for an opportunity to think and reflect. It is a group coaching experience, rather than a training course.

The session is led by qualified Leadership Coach, Jo Murfin, member of our BHCC/ESCC Coaching Pool.

  • Our Fair & Inclusive Action Plan & its background & the four key workstreams

Code: BH/20/1428 Supporting Dyslexia and Neurodiversity in the Workplace (Microsoft Teams) AM (EVENT FULL)

An engaging and interactive 3-hour online workshop designed for HR departments, teams, managers and individuals wanting to improve their understanding of disabilities, and the small changes that make a big difference to accessibility, inclusivity and productivity.

Understanding how to harness the varied skills and strengths of a diverse workforce is key to creating good company culture and success in the workplace. In this workshop we will be exploring neurodiversity, and what it means to be neurodiverse. We will talk about inclusive practice, and what can be done to enhance wellbeing and productivity in the workplace. Hidden disabilities can easily go unidentified and subsequently unsupported, so this workshop aims to raise awareness surrounding all types of disabilities, and what can be done to harness each individual's strengths and reduce their challenges.  

Disclosing a disability and advocating for support can be a scary thing, but with enough awareness and understanding, a negative experience can be turned into a really positive step forward, helping the individual progress and thrive, with confidence in the way they work.

Code: BH/20/1271 Communicating with Impact

Due to the Coronavirus pandemic the popular Communicating with Impact workshops will be delivered remotely instead of face to face for the rest of 2020.

This has given us the opportunity to review its success and identify different ways to deliver the training, as well as the further embedding of the learning.  We have commissioned 6 pilot remote sessions to support your continual development as a manager. 

Please note that this learning consists of pre course work (approximately 30mins), two, (2 hour) online workshops, 2 weeks apart.   Please ensure that you are available to attend both sessions.

This workshop is a course about presenting with confidence, and delivering an impactful message.  You will be expected to deliver a presentation via video, and get feedback from other delegates.  If you are unwilling to deliver a presentation to improve your practice, this isn't the learning that will support you now.
