'Sandie's programme is very well structured and thought out'
We’ve been asked more and more over recent years to create and deliver bespoke employee training, as one-to-ones, or to present to larger teams or as workshops. We’ve met the need and have created and delivered training in these four areas:
1: Announcements to teams
Your employees can be given the news of a colleague’s diagnosis of terminal illness, chronic disease, condition or impairment, in a sensitive team announcement, devised by us.

2: After Diagnosis, training and workshops
We can also design training with the affected employee to educate colleagues to enable the affected employee to feel included and supported.
Delivered training has included:
- Understanding loss and grief
- Mental health disorder awareness
- How to communicate with a terminally ill colleague
All coachee's complete our mental wellbeing assessment tool. We then create bespoke coaching, support and training around this.

3: Presentations, Training and Workshops
What would you do if an employee came to tell you that a family member had committed suicide, or that they had just been diagnosed with a terminal illness?
Life is full of challenges that don’t magically disappear when we come to work. That’s why stress management and resilience are increasingly important skills to have in the workplace.
In today’s fast-paced business world, it is crucial to be able to recognise early stress warning signs in your employees, and to cultivate a ‘toolkit’ of supportive techniques that also allow you to develop personal resilience.
To help you do this, we offer varied levels of training in two specific areas:
· Employee Stress Management and Resilience
· Resilience for the HR Professional
Delivered on a one-to-one or team basis, our interactive workshops cover a wide range of topics that will help you face the challenges of change head on, whilst taking good care of your (and your team’s) wellbeing.
Instead of dwelling on problems and using unhealthy tactics to cope with stress, trauma and tragedy, you will instead learn how to adapt and recover.
Outcomes include increased productivity, improved communication, and a calm and compassionate workplace culture.
