Code: BH/22/0185 Managers Network - Climate Change curated by Trisector challenge 2022 cohort

This month, our Manager's Network will explore climate change.  

The Manager Network meetings are online sessions, lasting up to 120 minutes; introduced and facilitated by your management peers. Each standalone session covers a different topic relevant to managers to help you develop and offer a chance to get together, albeit virtually.

It's a great chance to get away from emails and day to day work to reflect on your own management practice.

All managers (and aspiring managers) are welcome, and you don’t need to have attended any of the previous sessions to be able to come to this one.

Overcoming Overwhelm online for Leadership Network only

Overwhelm – a personal plan


What is overwhelm and what causes it?

Being overwhelmed occurs when there is too much of something going on – we feel
like we’re drowning or being buried.

This can happen for a number of reasons, but a feeling of too many things to do, too
much work, too much work pressure and too many deadlines can be a major
contributor.

Feeling overwhelmed has repercussions on the whole of our life. It can make us feel
tired, interfere with our sleep and make it difficult for us to think rationally. These
negative emotions can make it more difficult for your body to fight off infections and
can have a physical effect with fatigue, neck and upper-back pain, for example.
Add all this together and it can affect every area of life, impacting our social lives and
relationships on top of the work challenges.

All these feelings distract us from being effective and efficient and that, in turn, leads
to lowered ‘performance’ and sets up a vicious cycle dragging us further down.
This can lead to procrastination (making things worse!) and creative avoidance –
doing things that don’t really matter to distract ourselves or things that give us
pleasure, putting off the real work further.

Online sessions via zoom of two x 2 hours (you will need to attend both sessions)

This four hour session offers a practical and experiential opportunity to understand,
appreciate and acknowledge that different situations trigger people in different ways.

What one person will find ‘easy’ another may find ‘challenging’ and adding to levels
of stress.

Once we have an understanding of our personal ‘triggers’ we are then in a better
position to find the solutions to manage our stress, our workloads, and find effective
ways that enable us to feel more ‘in control’.

Code: BH/22/0024 Permanence – What does it Mean for Children and Young People and How can it be Achieved?

Social workers make life changing decisions regarding where children should live and who is best placed to meet their needs to ensure that they can be cared for in a way that minimises disruption in their long-term care (permanence). There are a range of permanence options for children including returning home to live with their parents; living with extended family or friends; living in a foster family or being adopted. Making these decisions are complex with social workers required to assess and consider the competing needs of children and family members; weigh different options and manage feelings stirred up in the process. Taking place over four days, this course is for anyone involved in the process of care planning for children. It aims to develop the knowledge and skills to make robust decisions regarding children’s long-term care, ensure children’s needs are met and offers an opportunity to reflect on the impact of making these decisions on the child, their family, carers, social worker and professional network.

Please note, this is a 4 session course, and you need to attend all dates. Please discuss with the trianers if this is a problem, ie clashes with a court date.

Priority places for ASYEs.
