The demands of the modern workplace are many and varied.
From email and meeting overload to the challenges of juggling home and work responsibilities, it’s easy to see how people become overwhelmed and stressed, and how this can impact teamwork, relationships and productivity.
The Stevenson and Farmer report – Thriving at Work – published in October 2017, highlights the need for employers to do more to support the mental health of their staff.
On publication of the report, the Prime Minister committed the civil service to implementing the recommendations, demonstrating the importance of good mental wellbeing to the economic health of the nation.
The Thriving at Work vision states that:
‘every one of us will have the knowledge, tools and confidence to understand and look after our own mental health and the mental health of those around us’.
Here at Fresh Air Fridays, we provide exactly this through our proven programmes, taking groups of people outside and exploring 12 key themes.
From the importance of ‘Filling Yourself Up First’ to stretching our ‘Comfort Zones’ and deciding who we want in ‘Our Team’, the programme explores different aspects of wellbeing, encouraging personal responsibility and development, building resilience and helping people to live and work with greater purpose and joy.
The programme can be run for individuals across an organisation or, alternatively, as an opportunity for team building.
More and more businesses are recognising that people truly are key to their success. This programme will help your people to enjoy healthier, happier and more productive lives and create more open, trusting relationships with their colleagues and customers.
If you’re looking for a programme that delivers all these things, we’d love to hear from you!
We decided to pilot fresh air coaching for a number of reasons including improving productivity, well-being and exposing willing volunteers to a range of tools and techniques that would help them in the workplace and in their personal life. The results were amazing all the participants were able to provide hard evidence of how the course had made a difference and gave a presentation to our executive team on outcomes and impact.
…. the course was a success and has led to a significant change in mind set and attitude amongst those involved. These are some of the most impressive results I have seen from a course in my career and I am confident that any business would benefit from fresh air coaching.Angela Lewis
