Creating workplaces where people feel safe to be themselves
Join our workplace program
If your business needs a wellbeing boost, HOMS facilitators can host FREE live events for small groups, or for your whole organisation.
Circles are small group sessions, facilitated by a qualified HOMS coach which create a space for openness and relief. Divided into two halves, participants will practice both "productive venting" and "wisdom sharing". Circles are the perfect environment to:
- Support people who have been impacted by change
- Address specific challenges
- Provide leadership cohorts with structured peer support
Nothing changes company culture quite like telling stories does. We can work with you to educate and empower your people to share their experiences in a way that demystifies mental health, and humanises people at all levels of a company hierarchy. We cover:
- How to prepare yourself to share a story
- The 5 elements of a story structure
- How to filter for authenticity, safety, & impact
- Tips for written or spoken delivery
- Aftercare – how to protect yourself and your story long term
Live masterclasses are thoroughly interactive and include Q&A. They educate and support staff to embed effective help seeking practices, including:
- Recognising wellbeing warning signs
- Identifying avenues of support
- The Pros and Cons of speaking up
- Finding the right words
- Managing conflict
- Challenging self doubt
