Healing an Ailing Workplace: The Power of the Well-Being Intelligence Curriculum

How to Know Your Workplace is Ailing

Recognizing the signs of an ailing workplace is the first step in healing it. A decline in productivity does not just mark an ailing workplace but also the deteriorating mental and emotional health of its workforce. Key indicators include widespread distrust, anxiety, and a general atmosphere of dissatisfaction and conflict.

Secret Signs of an Ailing Workplace

Often, the most telling signs of workplace distress are not overt. They manifest as subtle changes in employee behaviour, increased absenteeism, reduced engagement, and a lack of enthusiasm for collaborative projects. You might also notice a spike in complaints and grievances, both internally among staff and externally from clients.

Healing an Ailing Workplace

Healing begins with acknowledging the problem and understanding its roots. It requires a concerted effort from both leadership and employees to foster an environment of trust, open communication, and mutual respect. Interventions should not only be corrective but also preventative, addressing potential stressors before they escalate.

Support for Leaders in an Ailing Workplace

Leaders play a crucial role in healing an ailing workplace. They need tools and strategies to lead with empathy, communicate effectively, and create a positive work culture. Leadership training in conflict resolution, emotional intelligence, and employee engagement are vital.

Support for Employees in an Ailing Workplace

Employees must also be equipped to contribute to a healthy workplace. This involves training in stress management, effective communication, and teamwork. Creating peer support systems and ensuring access to mental health resources are also crucial steps.
