Why have we created the mastermind programme?
The COVID 19 crisis has caused unprecedented change with associated anxiety, stress and worry. Workload appears to have doubled, processes have all changed it’s harder to concentrate and managers are often having to do the day job, manage the children, redesign your processes, cope with colleagues virtual working and manage anxious doctors, patients and staff all at the same time!
Their staﬀ are going through the exact same thing, and they’re looking to their managers to help them through.
Whilst practice managers cannot (and should not) be responsible for their teams’ mental health and wellbeing, providing a safe and supportive environment in which to work is more important now than ever. Yet many managers and leaders feel ill-equipped to deal with these challenges and may feel that they just don’t have what it takes. They worry they might make things worse, say the wrong thing or put too much pressure on people.
We understand how it can feel like walking along a tightrope between wellbeing and productivity and know the pressures many leaders are under right now to perform at the highest level whilst making sure their teams are OK.
We believe that it shouldn’t be a choice between managers being OK and teams being OK. The Shapes Toolkit is a breakthrough resilience and productivity programme which has supported many managers and teams to maximise their own wellbeing and productivity whilst ensuring their teams are working together better than ever.
A Shapes Toolkit Mastermind Group Programme is a chance for practice managers to be mentored online with a small group of peers through the Shapes Programme so they can continue to provide clear and supportive leadership, be successful in their own work and prevent stress and burnout through this difﬁcult time
