How to Turn Middle Managers from Roadblocks into Wellness Champions
In a recent WELCOA poll, only 13% of respondents agreed that their “leaders are strong champions for wellness”. On top of that, we can’t ignore that poor management is a serious obstacle to employee wellbeing but as a wellness professional, what can you do about it?
We’ve been told that getting leadership buy in for our wellness efforts is critical to our success. We then spend time asking our senior leadership to send out communications, attend a walk or support your wellness initiatives. Our senior leaders may do these things, may even give us a budget, so we feel supported.
It’s the level of leadership below the senior leaders that really can be the deal breaker for your wellness efforts.
During this webinar, Jen will help you increase your effectiveness and impact with middle managers. At the end of the webinar, you’ll be able to:
- Describe the impact of management/direct supervisors on employee wellbeing.
- Avoid common mistakes wellness pros make when asking middle managers for support.
- See practical ways to better engage managers in your wellness efforts.
