Managing mental health in challenging times webinar with David Beeney


Our mental health has never been so challenged en masse as we struggle to cope with the coronavirus crisis. Below you'll find a recording of our webinar 'Managing Mental Health in Challenging Times' that took place on the 6th May. We hosted a Q&A with the inspirational David Beeney.

David was recognised in 2018 as one of the top 101 influencers globally on employee engagement, he is also a qualified Mental Health Counsellor affiliated to the BACP (British Association of Counsellors and Practitioners) and a trustee for Mind.

In the webinar we explored how to improve our own levels of personal resilience, as well as the best ways of keeping staff engaged, with particular emphasis on how to stay emotionally connected with remote workers.

Key themes we explored:

  • We explored ideas of how to create a kinder culture ‘remotely’ where people are caring, supportive and more empathetic of each other’s anxieties.

  • We looked at what is considered best practice for managers to inspire employees to remain engaged during exceptionally challenging times.

  • We looked at the importance of using the right language to encourage honest and open conversation about wellbeing.

  • We looked at how you can improve your own levels of personal resilience during challenging times.

  • We looked at how to inspire employees to be more open by saying ‘it’s okay not to be okay’ and by sharing our own vulnerabilities.
