You will develop competencies of resilience, mindfulness and emotional intelligence and wellbeing strategy development, combined with effective implementation and leadership skills, resulting in a Nationally Recognised professional qualification.

This revolutionary program is particularly relevant to all people managers and team leaders, including those working in human resources, people and culture, safety or diversity programs, frontline managers and specialist consultants responsible for promoting a healthy harmony between work and personal lives. It also adds value for individuals who take responsibility for managing staff health and wellbeing programs or activities.

You will gain the core competencies to self-lead and to lead others with authenticity, inspiration and purpose, whilst acting with integrity within your scope of practice and working collaboratively with an understanding of creating and delivering wellbeing strategies and projects against measurable outcomes that support business objectives.
