Deakin University MBA Masterclass: Work and Wellbeing

Leadership essentials for fostering thriving teams and organisations

An organisation is only as healthy as its employees. As leaders strive to navigate the future of work in a pandemic world, employee wellbeing has become one of the undisputed challenges for organisations across the globe. Investing in employee wellbeing is no longer a ‘nice-to-have’ but business critical.

However, cultivating a wellbeing focused culture requires strategic leadership, including and understanding of how to:

  • Identify, analyse and mitigate physical, psychological, social and environmental risks for your teams and organisation
  • Create a results-oriented wellbeing strategy that aligns to and supports business goals
  • Optimise personal wellbeing to maintain effective and sustainable leadership

Delivered as part of the Deakin University MBA Masterclass series, this practical virtual masterclass is delivered over 4 weeks (4 x 2 hour sessions via Zoom + pre-work) by our expert facilitators with over 65+ years collective experience.

The Masterclass will position current and emerging leaders as change agents for workplace wellbeing, providing a critical competitive edge for both the organisations in which individuals lead and in their personal careers.

How does the Deakin MBA Masterclass differ to your accredited Wellness Practitioner training?
The Deakin Masterclass targets current and emerging business leaders, and provides an in-depth overview of the business imperative for investment in wellness at work, responsibilities and obligations, the role of leaders as change agents, and the 6 steps for developing a results-oriented strategy.
