Episode 56: Strategies for strong relationships at work and at home: Rachel Vecht, Director & Wellbeing Champion, Educating Matters
Ahead of World Wellbeing Week starting on 27 June, in this special episode we hear from Rachel Vecht who shares her decades of experience helping companies to support their colleagues’ wellbeing.
Discussing strategies for strong relationships, from parent-child to colleague-colleague, Rachel provides practical examples we can all use day to day, (I loved the magic ratio of 5:1!) as well as underlying principles that inform her approach.
