Right now, many of us are feeling the strain. We’re working in uncertain times, with concerns for family, health and work. It’s understandable that at times our resilience reserves run low. Left unchecked, this can lead to burnout. Let us show you how to top up the tanks for you and your team. In this one-hour, informal virtual workshop Katy Walton from Make Real Progress will share with you:

  1. Getting the pressure levels right
  2. Why zebras don’t get ulcers
  3. The resilience treasure chest

Menopause with Bev Thorogood

Menopause is a ‘hot’ topic right now, with many forward-thinking employers recognising the impact of menopause on all areas of business – from D&I to the bottom line.

Your line managers need to feel confident to have supportive conversations with the people who work for them.  They need to know where to go for help and what they can realistically do to help.

Finally, women and non-binary employees need to feel supported and able to seek the help they need to continue to perform at their best as they go through their menopause transition.

During this session we’ll be defining what menopause is, and what it is not.  We will be breaking some myths and helping you to understand some of the difficulties working women and non-binary employees face due to the impact of menopause related symptoms.

I will also share with you what HR can do to help, where menopause sits in terms of employment law and how you can support your managers to confidently deal with performance related issues that may arise as a result of menopause.

You will leave with a better understanding of menopause and the impact it can have on your people as well as further resources to help you plan your next steps in getting the menopause conversation started in your organisation.
