Programme

Empowering Leaders through Change

Understanding and minimising the emotional impact of the change process.

The Programme usually runs for between six to eight weeks, for one hour each session. The frequency of the sessions runs weekly, two weekly or monthly depending on the level of support need. During the initial first session, a support assessment will be undertaken, to ascertain the level, type and frequency of service, and to identify any additional support issues that may require further interventions, with other services.

A series of methodologies such as cognitive behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing, humanistic and psychodynamic approaches will be utilised to help you recognise our own skills and positive attributes.

In these sessions, you will be given the tools to recognise and develop the strengths you already possess. A copy of one’s confidential session notes, which detail the area/s of support identified and ongoing action plan will be provided and will be reviewed each session. Exercises may be set to be completed at home.

Monitoring and evaluation mechanisms will be put in place to manage the service, to ensure the correct platform of support is delivered, with regular feedback sessions and quarterly reports to be completed for the duration of the programme.

Parts of this service can be adapted for group work/group training sessions, to achieve a higher target audience reach and to reduce costs associated with 1:1 support.

At the end of service, it is anticipated that the co-workers will be able to:

  1. Identify and address their emotions in a healthy manner, and understand how this can affect behaviour.
  2. Recognise and utilise their tools in their tool-shed, and identify gaps to build on.
  3. Build and grow their platform to spring-board form, addressing self-esteem and confidence.
  4. Undertake self-reflection exercises and establish their own support and development.
  5. Use self-empowerment mechanisms when dealing and managing co-workers, so they can adopt the techniques.
  6. Understand the process of change and the impacts on them and other dynamics.
  7. Have improved stress levels and better wellbeing.
  8. Improve communication skills.
