Building your team’s tolerance of uncertainty

£450 + VAT
Start date: 12 July 2021

Proactively and responsibly support your employees’ mental wellbeing

The role of leader is a critical one. Leaders set the conditions in which those around them thrive or fail. Whether considering a team who you line manage or the broad organisation which you lead, anyone in a leadership role has a responsibility to ensure the mental health of their employees is factored in at all times.

However, many of us are unprepared for this role. Mental health has not been a topic which has driven our approach to organisation growth, strategic decision-making or the choices which underpin our businesses. Leaders now require a new toolkit which tunes them into the ways in which their employees and team members react, respond and resolve to questions which challenge them.

Through this programme, we hope to support you in bringing an extra dimension to your leadership – one which allows you to increase the effectiveness of your organisation as a whole. Join us to develop knowledge, strategies and practical tools to secure the health of your business.



As an introduction to this programme, join our free webinar where Dr Olivia Remes will discuss how we can increase the effectiveness of your organisation through looking at employee mental health and well-being.

  • Fully online – All modules are delivered in a virtual environment, allowing you to access the learning and content safely and conveniently.

Learning outcomes

The ‘building your team’s tolerance of uncertainty’ module is specifically relevant to the current context of the global pandemic, drawing together how teams have been affected by the changes which have already occurred alongside anticipation of future ambiguity. By being able to identify the early signs of low tolerance, fearful mindsets, participants will be able to support their teams and themselves before the full impact is felt on performance.

The module is designed to be highly practical, so that you will gain actionable tools that you can take back to the workplace. You will understand how perceptions can either cloud your judgement or lead to opportunities and learn actionable strategies for letting go of fearful mindsets that impact on productivity and wellbeing. In light of this, the learning will empower you to become more decisive even in the face of change.

Learning outcomes include:

  • understanding why some people and teams react negatively to uncertain situations while others face them with a calm determination;
  • gaining knowledge of how to anticipate and identify challenges with tolerance and fearful mindsets within a team in the context of uncertainty;
  • learning about the practical tools that can build tolerance of uncertainty and decisiveness within a team context;
  • learning research-based strategies for becoming more decisive, even in the face of adversity; and
  • establishing ways to build tolerance, decisiveness, and learn how to thrive at an individual and team level, even in the face of uncertain situations or events.


Who is the programme for?

The impact of the global pandemic has highlighted the prevalence of mental health, and the merging of home and work life means that positive wellbeing must now be considered as a key factor in supporting employee performance.

As such, this programme is suitable for those responsible for a team, across all levels of the organisation.

Building your team’s tolerance of uncertainty is particularly beneficial for HR professionals looking for ways to create a positive impact on mental health in the future across the whole organisation.
