Considerations For Supporting Staff Mental Health – Managing Workplace Stress and Conflict. 

For many, stress and tension at work are at an all-time high. As an employer, manager or supervisor, knowing how to de-escalate and navigate challenging situations effectively is essential to creating and maintaining a healthy workplace culture. Changing rules and expectations, uncertainty, and inconsistency contribute to stress, and conflict can quickly arise when issues are not addressed appropriately.

Attendees can expect insights on:

How to recognize warning signs and de-escalate conflict among staff, colleagues and clients – and the benefits of early intervention
Practical communication strategies including verbal skills to navigate challenging situations
Setting boundaries and knowing how/when to ask for assistance
