This series of 6 two-hour workshops for all employees aims to raise awareness of stress and the impact on performance and mental health, if left untreated. It covers the benefits of developing a resilient mindset and provides a toolkit of practical, powerful coping techniques. These are easy to use on a day to day basis to monitor and manage stress thus developing our resilience to challenge and change.

Building Resilience Together

The modern day workplace can feel like a battlefield at times. Many organisations are merging or consolidating their businesses and most are challenging employees to adapt to new ways of working. High work volumes and fast-changing business processes are commonplace. As a result many organisations are reporting higher levels of absence, with stress being one of the top reasons, particularly in cases of long term absence. Locally, ​improving mental health and treating mental illness are two of our biggest health care challenges in Jersey.

Her Talent - A Personal Development Programme for Working Women

TDN are proud to launch our unique programme to support working women of all backgrounds with career development and wellbeing.

In our fast-changing and increasingly uncertain business landscape, the most successful businesses will be those with a greater diversity of talent at all levels. However, there is much evidence to demonstrate that women face specific barriers and challenges in terms of both career progression and managing the balance between work and domestic responsibilities, that most of their male colleagues do not.

The Programme:

1:1 coaching to identify your goals for the programme

3 half days workshops over 3 months:

  • Qualities of being a woman & career development (Self assessment, Confidence & Developing Your Potential, Identifying Priorities & Removing Barriers)
  • Developing a sense of self (Knowing Your Strengths, Developing Your Brand, Networking)
  • Managing your performance (Improving your Health & Wellbeing, Work/Life Balance, Making it Happen)

Developing a personal development plan and an ongoing, supportive network to take you beyond the programme.

"If you exclude 50% of the talent pool it's no wonder you find yourself in a war for talent." (Teresa Whitmarsh)

Cost: £595

Diversity, Inclusion and Belonging

Why are diversity, inclusion and belonging at work so important?

In the last two decades our workplaces have drastically changed. They have become more global, changeable and in many ways, more diverse. New generations bring high expectations and organisations are constantly looking for new ways to develop, engage and retain key talent. Whilst managing people in this context can be challenging, it also represents an opportunity. Those organisations who can build a diverse workforce and leverage its differences stand to harness employee skills and engagement and increase customer satisfaction.

TDN's innovative programme can be tailored to support any organisation wherever it is on its journey to a diverse and inclusive culture.

Programme Overview:

Four half day workshops over 3 months:

1. Awareness and Understanding D&I - the 'what' and'why'.

2. Exploring unconscious bias and frames of reference.

3.Diversity, Inclusion & Belonging in action, the 'how' and 'when'

4. Creating strategies for change.

"Ideas from women, people of colour, LGBTs, and Gen-Ys are less likely to win the endorsement they need to go forward because 56% of leaders don't value ideas they don't personally see a need for."
