Ep 42 – The discovery of a brain tumour, the peri-menopause and an unsympathetic line manager – this is Nicki’s story

In today’s episode I’m joined by Nicki Hetfield-Rogerson.  Nicki is a freelance recruitment consultant now but before starting her business, she was employed by a large corporate organisation.  Sadly they ailed to provide the support necessary to help her through a distressing diagnosis of a brain tumour, combined with panic attacks, anxiety and a massive loss of confidence caused by the early onset of peri-menopause. causing her to feel she had little option than to resign her position..

Sadly Nicki’s story is not uncommon (well, maybe the brain tumour!) and I’m sure will resonate with many employees who are struggling to deal with poor mental health or menopause related symptoms.

Many managers lack the skills and empathy to deal with these situations.  Training can make the difference between a manager who is supportive in helping to retain talented members of staff and those who drive that talent away.

If you’re an HR professional or a business owner keen to upskill your employees, especially during the uncertainty we’re facing right now, drop me a message at bev@florescotraining.co.uk and let’s discuss how Floresco Training and Coaching can help.  www.florescotraining.co.uk
