Professional Supervision in the Business sector
We talk a lot about physical Health & Safety, however, there is a gap around how we support those who are struggling mentally. The reality is 1 in 5 New Zealanders will experience a mental illness this year and as leaders, there is a need to improve how well we identify this and provide the right level of support for our people.
A recent Harvard Business Review study found that happy employees have;
- On average, 31% higher productivity
- Their sales are 37% higher
- And their creativity is 3x higher
Conversely mentally unwell employees showed significantly
- Higher levels of sick leave
- Workplace conflict
- And personal grievance
Professional Supervision provides people the opportunity to sit in a safe and trusted space once every month. Because my service is independent and confidential, your staff feel able to discuss work related issues without the fear of ramifications around privacy and confidentiality.
I am also available for management team supervision and career development in person, over the phone or via Skype.
