Webinar Description: The high-performing managers of the future, aka, “Managers on the Move,” understand how to help their team members thrive - and why they should. It isn’t just common sense anymore that well-being creates higher performing organizations and teams - the evidence is piling up and the tide is in. Simply put, well-being is good for people, good for the organization and essential for building a winning team. Yet, despite the many offerings available - from walking challenges to meditation classes to flextime offerings - most employees are opting out. So, what’s holding people back from engaging more with well-being at work? Studies show it’s the manager! Learn the three simple practices that will make the difference: Do, Speak and Create. Whether you are a manager or one who works with managers, this session will give you a fresh perspective on what it really takes to be a team leader that inspires and enables team members to reach their full potential.
