Who Should Attend?

This critical course is ideal for:

  • New or experienced executive and non-executive directors
  • Aspiring directors
  • Senior executives and managers looking to gain a better understanding of the board's role in governing and leading wellbeing

This course is designed for directors who lead by example and who want to either gain an understanding of the key competencies required to be an effective leader of wellbeing at a board level and/or strengthen their leadership of wellbeing in the boardroom.

A decade ago, companies were making headlines for problems such as bribery, financial manipulation, and fraud, but we’re now seeing stress, burnout, suicide and mental illness, loneliness, low engagement, lack of meaning and purpose, bullying and sexual harassment as some of the critical issues of our time. COVID has exacerbated many of these issues and demonstrated the inextricable interconnection between the health and wellbeing of our society and the health of business and our economy.

Given that people spend more than one third of their life at work, there's no denying the role that the workplace has played and can play in the overall health, happiness and resilience of our society. It is impossible to completely separate our personal life and our work life, and employees, particularly millenials and Gen Z, are acutely aware that they want to work for employers who do more than prevent injury and illness, they want to work for organizations that prioritise wellbeing.

Unfortunately, management often lack the skills to address these wellbeing challenges. Indeed, management are not necessarily the best examples of wellbeing given what many give up to climb the corporate ladder. The board must therefore lead by example and demonstrate the behaviours that support and encourage wellbeing, as well as learn the necessary skills to educate and challenge management to be better leaders of wellbeing.

How Will I Benefit?

Participants will be provided with valuable opportunities to practice and develop competencies and the emotional intelligence to navigate wellbeing discussions in the boardroom. During the course you will be immersed in an evidence-based measurable wellbeing framework that will provide various opportunities for assessing different techniques and governance mechanisms that support organizational wellbeing, and evaluate how these can be applied to your own organization.

In a world where less than 50% of adults are flourishing, where they have low levels of mental illness and high levels of mental health, you will leave this course with the tools to not only lead wellbeing in your boardroom and better support your executive, but you will be better equipped to discuss and contribute to wellbeing in your household and in your community.

Upon completion of this course you will:

  • Understand the intent of positive psychology and the interconnection between wellbeing, mental health and safety.
  • Apply the principles and concepts of a measurable wellbeing framework to corporate governance.
  • Appreciate the broader role the board plays in executives and employees flourishing and demonstrate supporting leadership behaviours.
  • Understand the science behind our emotional response to our environment and the impact our emotions have on our physical and mental health.
  • Recognise opportunities for your organization to address a global epidemic of loneliness.
  • Explore opportunities to better support and challenge your executive's approach to the management of wellbeing.
  • Explore why being an effective leader of wellbeing is good for your own wellbeing.
  • Identify your individual character strengths and virtues and how applying them in your boardroom will strengthen your influence and help you make a positive impact on the health, happiness and resilience of society.
  • Be issued a certificate that can be used towards your director continuing professional development (CPD). See HERE for details.

Format

This course uses a blended approach to online learning that weaves together best practices in adult education, with creative networking opportunities and coaching support:

  • Independent online learning (up to 2 hours before event) This may include various e-learning modules, videos, webinars, podcasts, or readings. Independent learning enables participants to work through material at the time and pace that best suits their individual needs and is considered to be understood content and foundational to the upcoming classroom learning.
  • Live, classroom learning (approximately 6 hours) Classroom learning will include the application of concepts covered through independent learning as well as further concepts covered in the classroom. The live classroom sessions might include class discussions, breakout group discussions and exercises, Q&A with instructor and other experts, simulations, live interactive panel discussions, live polling and online chats.
  • Peer group exchange (approximately one hour) Course participant numbers are kept small enough to facilitate intimate participant groups. Facilitated online peer exchange will enable participants to build meaningful connections with peers, and exchange ideas and experiences that flesh out newly acquired knowledge and skills.
  • Learning sustainment tools and resources (post event) Following course completion, participants may receive follow-up resources – such as recommended reading materials, videos, webinars, portals, courses and self-directed peer exchange. These resources help course alumni maintain up-to-date knowledge and feel engaged as part of the Lead with Heart community.
  • 2-hr virtual coaching session with Samantha (post event) Following course completion, participants will have an opportunity to discuss how to apply their learning in today's governance environment and in their boardroom. This session will be a good opportunity to discuss the specific challenges and opportunities that exist in your boardroom with a health, safety and wellbeing professional.

We recommend that participants:

  • Have access to reliable, high speed internet (a minimum bandwidth of 4 Mbps for uploads and downloads).
  • Use a computer or device with a quality camera and microphone.
  • Have access to a quiet, private location for the duration of the virtual classroom sessions.

Instructor

I'm Sam McGolrick. I'm the creator of Lead with Heart in the Boardroom and my vision is to improve the health, happiness and resilience of society by improving how people feel at work.

To achieve this, my work is focussed around assisting board members in using their influence to govern organizations where people flourish as a human beings, because ultimately how we feel at work determines organizational performance and whether we go home with any discretionary energy to give back to our family, friends and community and do our part to make this world a better place.
