What can you do to improve capability?
Learning new things is both a key driver of mental health and one of the Five Ways to Wellbeing (five simple, effective ways to improve mental health and wellbeing). Workplaces can provide excellent opportunities for workers to learn and grow, and experience the business (and wellbeing) benefits from doing so.
A great place to start is SuperFriend’s Workplace Mental Health Essentials for All Staff course, which is designed to improve workers’ understanding of workplace mental health, its importance within organisations, and how to support the mental wellbeing of themselves and others.
Leaders also play a vital role in lifting their teams’ capabilities by making sure workers have the resources to do their job well. This could include time, technology, training or tools. Leaders can learn strategies to build and enhance their team’s capability in SuperFriend’s Elevate Your Leadership: Positive Strategies for Successful Teams course.
