Supporting Leaders

Being a leader in the workplace can be tough when it comes to managing people and sometimes support from a senior psychologist experienced in workplace human behaviour can help. All of our leader support is confidential and can help with a number of issues, including:

  • Assessing risk

  • Identifying mental health concerns in a worker

  • Communicating with regards to the EAP or bringing up mental health in a sensitive way

  • Communication

  • Team issues

  • Conflict

  • Reasonable adjustment

  • Fitness for work

  • Performance issues

  • Organisational change

  • Critical response

  • Breaking bad news

  • Improving morale


We provide training packages tailored for leaders and HR or Health and Safety professionals on key areas. See our Training page to learn more.

NewPsych also offers coaching to managers to help them achieve their best when it comes to managing people. Coaching is a collaborative relationship with the aim of supporting a leader to be the best they can and optimise performance in managing people, maximising productivity, decision making and communication.  The phases of coaching involve establishing a partnership, developing goals and then working towards achieving those goals as well as periods of reflective process.

Senior & Executive Leader Services

Senior Leadership Coaching provides a confidential environment where participants can speak openly about their concerns whilst committing to learning goals that are realistic, but allow them to grow. A study by the Institute of Executive Coaching (IEC) found that 90% of respondents believed coaching assisted them to think differently in their role, and 85% believed an external coach provided a safe place to talk about their issues that they otherwise wouldn’t address. Ninety-two percent of respondents said that “once they started thinking differently, they then acted differently”. This is how coaching produces results.

Leadership Development Programs

NewPsych contribute to and deliver leadership development programs for organisations. A broad-spectrum approach to leadership grows the collective leaderships skills of the whole workforce, whilst also targeting the specific attributes most important at each level and type of role.

A Quick 5 Minutes With NewPsych

One leader development strategy is NewPsych’s ‘Quick 5 Minutes’ video series. This involves distribution of a short video filmed by a psychologist from our team with specialisation in that topic area. We can work with you to identify key leadership skills or organisational and people issues to target in these videos, or align them to the leadership and strategic framework of your business.

The videos are conversational and informal, designed to feel like a brief chat and efficiently share information in an engaging way. See below an example of one of these.
