Improving wellness for employees translates into efficient service delivery. Employees are faced with many demands in the work environment and personal challenges that impact on their productivity. People working in the health system at all levels often feel disconnected from the centre of power and lost in a multitude of bureaucratic processes. This increases feelings of alienation, demotivation, neglect and burnout. The Wellness for Effective Leadership (WEL) Programme responds to these challenges in the health system from a human resource development perspective. It further assists organisations with improving the wellness, emotional intelligence, interpersonal communication and personal skills of staff, and enhances organisational performance.
This course is about helping and empowering employees with the knowledge and skills to work effectively and efficiently in the health system. It focuses on helping people to function optimally in a team, often in a less-than-ideal setting, by increasing their contribution to the work team. The programme emphasises team building, collaboration and active participation in teams. Skilled facilitators help individuals and the group to identify their unique needs and go on to address these in the programme.
Health facility managers, health professionals, and line and support staff.
