It’s Blue Monday today and whether you agree it’s real or a marketing tool, this third week of January is hard, for a lot of us

We’re in the middle of a global pandemic, it’s hard!

So, how are you supporting yourself right now? And, as a team leader or manager or employer, how are you supporting your teams?

What can you do today and every week as a team leader?

When you ask your team “how are you?”
– do you really want to know the answer?
– are you really listening to their answers?
– do you know how they can get help?
– does a team member’s answer or behaviour greatly concern you?

The Samaritans and Grassroots have both got some very useful training sessions, apps, conversation starter tools that you as a team leader can benefit from.

There is help out there so don’t be afraid to reach out.
