Mental Health, Work Injury and Unsatisfactory Performance; a “Wicked” Problem for Leaders

Mental health and related work injury and performance issues are cited as one of the biggest challenges facing school leaders.

The types of problems faced by leaders are often highly complex, difficult to resolve and emotionally taxing. They sit neatly under the label “wicked problem” because they are not easily dealt with through traditional managerial approaches and require broader, more collaborative and innovative methods.

Understanding and dealing with mental health issues in the workplace requires thinking that is capable of grasping the big picture, including understanding and working with the complex human dimensions involved.

SASSLA brings together a highly skilled and respected line up of guest speakers to help you understand and tackle the legal, departmental policy and human dimensions of mental health and related work injury and performance management.

Please view our conference flyer below and join us for an afternoon of practical advice on issues that are of major concern to site leaders.  Book now at Eventbrite to secure your seats.
