Event information

The UCT Graduate School of Business is dedicated to not only forging but also growing the business leaders of tomorrow. We are proud to host a set of workshops titled "LeadWell: Nurturing Mental Health for Leadership Excellence."

 Most conventional leadership talks, workshops and seminars focus on leading others and helping leaders maximise the productivity and performance of their teams and organsiations. However, these workshops help leaders maximise their productivity and performance by adopting tools and practices that place their mental health and resilience at the forefront of their leadership practice. Because culture starts at the top, and healthy and happy leaders create productive teams and high-performing organisations.

Workshop 2 titled Cultivating Self-Care Foundations comprises of two fundamental building blocks of a leader’s path to resilience and inspiration:

  • Prioritizing You: This is the cornerstone of the workshop set. By understanding why wellbeing is important for you as a leader, and how it affects your team and organisation, you will be inspired to give yourself the care and consideration that the workshops are designed to equip you with.
  • Mind Matters: The LeadWell: Nurturing Mental Health for Leadership Excellence workshops are grounded in research and science. This module unpacks the crucial link between the brain and overall well-being, giving you a solid grasp of the neurological foundations and benefits of sustainable self-care.

  The workshops are live interactive virtual sessions, each lasting three hours, and the remainder three workshops are as follows:

  •  Workshop 3: Introducing the LeadWell Mental Health & Wellbeing Vaccine (17 October 2024) – in which    LeadWell’s mental health ‘vaccine’ is explained, and the value of vulnerability, compassion, and connection is    explored. (Cost R995)
  •   Workshop 4: Administering the LeadWell Mental Health & Wellbeing Vaccine (14 November 2024) – where    delegates come to grips with mindset techniques, personal energy management, and are given tools and techniques    to sustain insights gained throughout this transformative journey. (Cost R995)

  The workshops are delivered by clinical psychologist and leadership development specialist, Lauren Davis, who has more than two decades of experience in helping leaders find their purpose, unleash their passion and fulfil their potential.

                                                                                   Invest in yourself today; LeadWell tomorrow.
