By opening the session to all, we begin to overcome barriers and give permission to the group to accept the challenges men face that may not be spoken about. The session is an honest introduction to the concept and the exercises and steps shared by Rob Taylor and Angga Kara will lead to immediate takeaways and actions for the group to practice.

Dads In Business & Men Up North and are helping Men and Dads in the workplace bring the best of themselves to work and at home.
In 2020 we carried out primary research into the impact of Covid on men and Dads. This research found the following key highlights that showed the productivity challenges at work:

  • 87% of felt distraction from work
  • 25% of respondents felt out of focus with work
  • 16% of respondents felt overwhelmed

When asked how Covid has affected their role at work the qualitative responses were that people felt ‘less productive’ and ‘lower motivation on work
We are creating a space for men and Dads to come and share their experiences at this powerful session. This session will help the men and Dad specific issues raised from our research and from the real life outcomes from what is a changed environment.
We are creating the space required to have open and honest discussions and coaching around key topics uncovered from the research to help develop and maintain your own work life harmony, to bring the best of you to work and at home but also remember a little more about ourselves too!
We invite you to join us for this session and gain an introduction to what we think are the blockers and challenges for men and Dads to speak openly but also some practical and tactical takeaways to help us manage ourselves better at home, and at work.
The sessions are led by passionate & experienced facilitators who thread in both theoretical and practical elements of learning.
