Building Psychological Safety in Hybrid Teams new Wed 17 Nov 2021   11:00 Finished

Have you ever been in a team meeting where no one voiced their opinions, there was a lack of discussion, and everyone simply went along with the most senior person?

A high performing team is one that is able to bounce ideas off each other, problem solve, and feel comfortable that no one will not be humiliated for speaking up with ideas, questions, concerns or mistakes. But how can this be achieved?

In this course, we explore what psychological safety looks like in a hybrid environment, what gets in the way of us speaking up, and the science-backed strategies to become a psychologically safe team in today's modern working world.

Creating a Team Charter new Mon 21 Mar 2022   14:00 Finished


A Team Charter is a written document created by colleagues within a team to purposefully communicate and work together. Co-creating a Team Charter is a way of establishing clarity of purpose, defining operational responsibilities within and for the team, and a way to ensure challenges can be approached respectfully and with accountability.

Teams are always evolving and developing. Over the last 2 years, teams have had to adapt in so many new ways and, for many, has forced us to look at what works and what doesn’t, especially in a hybrid environment. Purposeful communication about how we want to work together is really beneficial to all members of the team, and is really helpful for new team members too.

Creating a Team Charter can be led by the manager, group or team lead, or by a member of the team, or as a peer activity. Everyone will be involved, and there are various ways of approaching it.

How to be an Active Bystander at Work new Thu 16 Jun 2022   14:00 Finished

Have you ever been concerned about a situation and wanted to help, but didn't? Hearing a racist/sexist/homophobic joke in the tea room? Seeing an inappropriate touch of a friend?

Come along to this short session to find out why this happens and what it means to be an active bystander. This includes simple changes and actions you can take to support others around you without confrontation and, over time, support a more inclusive environment for all of us to live and work in.

Managing in a Hybrid Environment – What's Changed new Wed 27 Jul 2022   11:00 Finished


This session is for leaders and managers to consider this part of their role in the context of working in a hybrid environment.

Since March 2020, people managers have continued to support individuals and teams to work together to ensure that key tasks have been achieved whether onsite and offsite. It's been a huge challenge at times – working out how to balance the work whilst maintaining safety, health and wellbeing. The learning has also been huge and this session aims to highlight how areas of practice (that have always been important for managers) have been and are still impacted by current ways of working. Maintaining a sense of shared identity and purpose, as well as ensuring equal access to information, relationships and opportunity, have all become new priorities. We will look at the challenges and opportunities given by working in a hybrid environment, and share ideas and techniques for good practice.

The session will be a presentation followed by an opportunity for discussion, questions and comment.

Returning Confidently new Wed 6 Oct 2021   11:00 Finished

Some of us have been working at home since last March, others have been working full-time on-site since then with very reduced numbers of colleagues around, others have been doing a bit of both and some have been on furlough or flexi-furlough. At this point, national restrictions are easing and more changes to our ways of working lie ahead. How are you feeling about returning to the workplace? How are you feeling about other people returning?

Join this session to understand the scientific perspective about why these changes might be stressful, and identify the main sources of stress for you. Take some time to plan how you can manage these feelings and learn some techniques to help cope with the tough moments.

The session is followed by a three day Nudge Course. This is one technique per day to help attendees convert proven techniques into useful habits. Also, for 48 hours following the session, participants will have the opportunity to contact Joy, a mental health nurse with over 40 years’ experience to help signpost them onto a recognised next step. Further details will be provided on the day.

Supporting People with Unseen Disabilities new Tue 28 Jun 2022   11:00 Finished


As part of the Festival of Wellbeing and in partnership with the Leaders and Managers Network, this session by Dr Hisham Ziauddeen will consider how we can understand unseen disabilities and support people with disability in the workplace, particularly as we move to new ways of working together.

The impacts of COVID on the disabled community and the challenges for the future will be considered. Disabled people are one of the groups in society that have been hit hardest by the pandemic and in the world of COVID, where we are moving to ‘life as normal’ and ‘living with the virus’, they will continue to be significantly affected. We need to understand these in order to think about how we can support our colleagues through the coming times.

Unconscious Bias happens automatically, without conscious control, when our brains make quick judgements or assessments about people and situations. Combatting unconscious bias isn’t about blame. It’s about accountability.

This session will provide an introduction to implicit or unconscious bias and will help you start to understand how our biases influence the decisions we make.
