Making Every Contact Count Healthy Conversation Skills
Making Every Contact Counts - Healthy Conversation Skills (MECC HCS) is an approach that uses the millions of day-to-day interactions that organisations and individuals have with people to support them in making positive changes to their health and wellbeing, by using open discovery questions and active listening skills. MECC HCS is about enhancing the conversations we are already having with individuals. It's not about adding to already busy workloads.
The course is divided into two ½ day sessions set a week apart alongside four
e- learning modules to be completed before session two. Both sessions and elearning must be completed to gain the accredited Royal Society for Public Health certificate.
As we progress through and out of the current pandemic, the majority of our teams are expected to be operating a hybrid model of working with some staff located in the office, either part or full-time, and some staff working from home. This model of team leadership is entirely novel to the vast majority of our managers and some of the challenges it will bring cannot be entirely known or understood at this point.
This one-hour facilitated virtual event for PCC, GBC and NHS / CCG managers is part of a learning package intended to support managers in effectively leading a hybrid team. The other part of the package is going to be a module on the intranet where managers can access self-help learning materials and tools.
The seminar will be conversational rather than a one-way content dump, so please come to the session with a question for the facilitators, or share what you have learnt and other effective practices you've implemented since March 2020.
This seminar will also be help L&D in identifying the support needs and concerns of our managers so that we can provide a more bespoke offering later. So please give this some thought before attending.
