This is a 2 hour facilitated session on Microsoft Teams, open to any member of staff.

Work can be rich with opportunity. Through work we can learn and grow, develop and contribute, build our careers, earn our living and provide for our family. It can also be challenging, demanding and exhausting; never more so than in having to adapt recently to the profound changes brought about by Covid-19.
Everyone has to cope with the stresses and strains of work and everyday life, you will have developed coping mechanisms that help you deal with familiar adverse situations and many unfamiliar ones. Some of your coping mechanisms however, aren't so effective and can sometimes make situations worse. What separates those who can hold their own and keep going in times of adversity is a cluster of habits that centre on resilience. This workshop will explore what resilience is and the habits that strengthen your resilience enabling you to:
• Deal with pressure and handle stress
• Maintain your motivation and engagement
• Develop and sustain self-esteem
• Bounce back from set-backs and disappointments
• Transform your work life
Enabling and supporting people to learn and develop as they work is a fundamental leadership skill. This five hour virtual workshop on Microsoft Teams looks at how managers can support people to learn though a variety of management and coaching interventions.
Change is something we all have to deal with, in our personal lives as well as at work. The pace and frequency of change can put enormous pressure on people, affecting relationships and impacting business performance. The organisations that survive and thrive are those that can successfully manage change and make the most of the opportunities that change offer.
This virtual workshop on Microsoft Teams explores change in a business context, why implementing change is so difficult and how you can increase your chances of getting change to stick.Essential Information
As we progress through and out of the current pandemic, the majority of our teams are expected to be operating a hybrid model of working with some staff located in the office, either part or full-time, and some staff working from home. This model of team leadership is entirely novel to the vast majority of our managers and some of the challenges it will bring cannot be entirely known or understood at this point.
This 90 minute facilitated virtual event for PCC, GBC and NHS / CCG managers is part of a learning package intended to support managers in effectively leading a hybrid team. The other part of the package is a forum on Teams where managers can access self-help learning materials and tools.
The seminar will be conversational rather than a one-way content share, so please come to the session with a question for the facilitators, or share what you have learnt and other effective practices you've implemented since March 2020.
This seminar will also be help L&D in identifying the support needs and concerns of our managers so that we can provide a more bespoke offering later. So please give this some thought before attending.
This 5 hour virtual workshop on Microsoft Teams explores the link between the business environment, effective management and service performance. It is equally relevant to new managers and those who are already managing but need a refresher.
Following the workshop, attendees will be directed to the extensive library of reading and digital study materials on this subject available on Knowledge Hub.

Organisations that provide services to children are required to incorporate into their recruitment and selection procedures measures that help deter, reject or identify people who might abuse children, or otherwise be unsuited to work with them.
Making safeguarding and promotion of the welfare of children an integral part of human resources management in organisations that work with children is an essential part of creating safe environments.
Following the 2004 Bichard Inquiry Report there are legal duties on schools, FE colleges and a wide range of partner organisations to safeguard and promote the welfare of children.
