Overall summary of the presentation
The presentation starts with an introduction to a concept of ‘wellbeing’ and addresses why attention to mental wellbeing is important
With a focus on mental wellbeing in the workplace, Catherine refers to the projected extensive impact that the Coronavirus pandemic is likely to have on individuals, communities and businesses as we progress through the pandemic, and individuals, businesses and the economy begin to recover
Catherine describes the Wellbeing Wheel™ as providing a baseline measure for wellbeing; completing the Wheel helps people identify for themselves areas of their life that are going well or where they could make some changes.
Wheel sector headings are (as given in the presentation) NB for an Introductory video, this section will not need to be too detailed. I may well re-record.
i. Physical health
ii. Mental health
iv. Social/work/community relationships
vi. Business/career aspirations
How the Wellbeing Wheel™ can be used
i. By individuals – As a way of helping individuals understand their own wellbeing and a starting point for making changes in their life
ii. By managers and chief executives – as a way of gaining an overall impression of wellbeing across an organisation; identifying individuals who are experiencing difficulties and highlighting aspects of the organisation that appear to be impeding or promoting performance
iii. By business and sports coaches, trainers and therapists – an additional tool to support their practice or use within training programmes
iv. By researchers – as a tool to investigate how people experience wellbeing
Comments from participants
i. I like how the Wheel is structured
ii. Adrian 26:00 to 26:45 – I am an executive coach…. the Wheel is helpful in getting the conversation started with people; so much is going on and their heads are full of stuff; they don’t quite know where they want to be or what is the issue that they want to address; this gives a good starter.
iii. Andy 27:01 – this can be filled out by tow people (employee and manager) and you can see the gaps
iv. Chris M 38:09 – mental wellbeing is a difficult conversation for men…..the Wheel as a dual purpose (providing 360deg feedback) ….the Wheel takes it (the conversation about mental wellbeing) away from the person….for coaching purposes, the headings might need to change or have additional headings….this would be useful to highlight areas across the business that need to be addressed
v. Debbie 42:22-43:23 – when working with team
