One of the most important actions when managing planned and unplanned leave is the conversations that leaders have with their people.

Sometimes these conversations can be challenging, especially when talking about people's wellbeing, patterns of sick leave or simply thinking about leave differently.

"How we do leave around here" is a two-hour, face-to-face workshop. It is designed to support CDHB Managers to develop the practical skills needed to navigate these challenging conversations in the context of leave care with the aim of:

  • better understanding the importance of being proactive about leave
  • using data to inform the right leave conversations at the right time, and
  • using the '3 Whats' to support effective planned and unplanned leave conversations
