To celebrate World Mental Health Day 2022, we want to highlight our incredible Where’s Your Head At Practitioner Programme with Dr Pauline Bell. The programme was designed to inspire and enable Bauer Media’s people to be role models of excellent wellbeing practice.
In doing so, they improved their own wellbeing and performance, support others to develop elf-care and implement new routines to strengthen wellbeing cultures in teams.
Over 6 months, participants learnt the science behind wellbeing, explored their own individual behaviours and investigates themes relating to resilience, optimism and connections. Participants have gained a holistic understanding of wellbeing, including how it relates to life inside and outside of work.
Each module followed a cycle that blended theory with practice. Its learn, discuss, apply and reflect process was designed to generate long lasting change in participants’ knowledge, skills and behaviours.
The programmes contained the latest research on wellbeing, including case studies, relevant theories and practical tips. All the workshops were held online and acted as a trigger for change. Interactive activities were designed to build the participants’ confidence using new techniques.
‘This has been amongst the best training I have been on in my 17 years at Bauer. The ripples of its effectiveness will be felt throughout the organisation for a long time to come!’
Sales Director, Bauer Media
These interactive online workshops have helped build participants’ confidence in using new techniques and how best to share them with colleagues in the workplace to strengthen wellbeing cultures in our teams.
Participants on the programme were encouraged to form a community. This was developed through workshops, huddles and activities. Participants were also encouraged to share their learning with others across the business.
