Leadership wellbeing agenda

Around 90% of employees think mental health is an important issue in the workplace, yet 50% believe their workplace is mentally healthy.  The majority of Australians look for workplaces that show the mental health is a priority.    Since the pandemic hit us,  the increase burden of stress, anxiety and mental health issues has spilled over into workplaces.  This has led to significant impact on staff morale, trust and connectedness to one another and the organisations they work in, and an increase pressure on leadership to step up. However, leadership themselves have not been spared from the impact of the pandemic on their own mental health and stress.

The Centre for Effective Serving is a dedicated space in workplace wellbeing – with a focus on burnout prevention in the leadership and people professions. Our mission is to ‘Serve the Server’, offering mental health support and guidance for anyone who leads and delivers services to other people.  We are here to support workplace wellbeing strategy by resourcing leadership and staff to remain hopeful, productive and mentally healthy.

Our mission is to serve the burnout prone industries with a tailored solutions that work through our clinical psychology expertise that best suit our client’s needs.

What Our Customers Have to Say

Health professionals, cross-cultural workers, educators, chaplains and clergy are quick to provide positive feedback.

The Bullet Proof course was an incredibly reflective space, where I was able to explore some of my strengths and shortcomings in taking care of myself. It was helpful to understand burnout prevention from different angles and how to highlight the different areas I need to work through to feel sustained as I continue my career in Psychology.

Valerie is a very engaging presenter. The presentations provided the perfect mix of new content, intellectual rigour, humour, real life examples, strategies and affirmations. Valerie spent time beforehand to understand the context of our school community in order to create bespoke presentations. We have received overwhelmingly positive feedback from our school community about the presentations. I would highly recommend engaging Valerie Ling and her practice Effective Living.
