The course is for anyone in employment who might be struggling to maintain wellbeing at work and who would like to explore ideas about how to alleviate work related difficulties. Participants will create their own “wellness pack” of resources and coping strategies to use at work and in other areas of life. The eight week evening course will give ideas and support for being healthy and well at work. Topics include Confidence & Self-Esteem, Assertiveness, Conflict Resolution, Managing Crisis, Time Management & Relaxation. If you or any employees are interested in this course, and would like to find out how to enrol, please call WorkPlace Leeds on 0113 230 2631
