Sick leave due to disturbances in their mental wellbeing costs well over NZ$2,000 per employee per year in loss of productivity. Organisations are facing greater challenges due to continuous technological advances and unforeseen environmental changes which might threaten their very existence. Not surprisingly, stress levels in the workplace are alarmingly high as employees need to continuously adapt to changes. It is of human nature to struggle with change, especially at the rate we are experiencing it today. Unease and stress are fertile grounds for conflicts to bloom. By developing an understanding of the thought processes that influence our ability to cope or change, we can harness the power of a growth mindset to positively influence and engage our employees. This mindset not only fosters positive relationships, but also helps reduce sickness due to poor (work related) mental health, and therefore making a difference to the organisation’s bottom line.

Participants will gain an understanding of different factors in the business environment of today that make change increasingly mainstream and how this affects employees. They will learn how we, as humans, commonly respond to change, what is a growth mindset and how we can harness its power to transform our relationships. They will also understand the reasons why it is possible to reduce workplace related sickness, especially sickness due to poor mental health associated with overexposure to stressful circumstances and anti-social behaviours.
