A Shropshire independent mental health organisation is celebrating success after it's recently launched course for management teams received official CPD accreditation.
Woodland Psychological Services Ltd, which offers a wide range of supportive services to businesses across the county, from advice to diagnosis, through to therapy and mental health awareness training, has received recognition for its 'Increasing Performance and Achieving Growth Through Leadership Development ' course which focuses on stress management strategies in the workplace to reduce employee absenteeism and enhance profitability.
"There is an increasing expectation for managers to undertake continuing professional development, and to have our programme verified by the CPD Certification Service provides businesses with that added reassurance that the content of the course is regulated, and does exactly what it says on the tin," said Managing Director of Woodland Psychological Services Ltd, Katie Woodland.
"With workplace-related mental health issues such as stress, depression and anxiety on the rise, our leadership development course not only focuses on stress management techniques and the simple organisational changes managers can make to reduce mental health-related absenteeism, but also enables managers to understand what is holding their team back from hitting those all important goals and guidance on the steps they can take to tackle this."
During the four-hour course, which can be delivered at the client's site, delegates develop basic psychological techniques to help them understand their leadership style, as well as their team's personalities, to increase motivation, productivity, team effectiveness, and -ultimately- profitability. The course can also be completed online, with delegates receiving exactly the same support and accreditation.
"I'd encourage anyone interested in finding out more about the course to get in touch on 01952 796 062 or firstname.lastname@example.org," Katie concluded.
