What are the needs of public sector managers in Cyprus? How does stress and daily routine affect their performance and well-being? These and other important themes were the centers of discussion during the introductory seminar for Mindful Managers. During the seminar, the project was presented and a focus group was conducted, during which participants described the situation in their sectors and organisations. Importantly, the needs of the managers were discussed, resulting in the conclusion that well-being is something that definitely needs to be supported and enhanced, given that daily routine and work load is pressing and sometimes intervenes with a healthy life, with stress and anxiety being the most common reasons.
Over the next months, partners will collect all the data from the needs analysis from all partner countries and start working on creating a set of activities and materials that will guide managers towards better work habits and overall well-being.
