When it comes to important conversations - don't underestimate the power of active listening.

Active listening is a real skill, and a difficult one to master.

But it can make a huge difference to the depth of a relationship and the trust between two people.

When practised with colleagues, it can turbo-charge collaboration, work engagement and professional output.

And when practised with customers or clients, it can transform business growth.

Active listening is one of the skills we help your people build at Fika Mental Fitness - improving connection skills by an average of 15%.

See below for a video of two of our Fika experts talking about the value of active listening.

From 'time off' to 'time in': how to replace burnout culture

Taking time off is essential for wellbeing. Our physical and mental health benefit from hitting pause. But many of us are unable to keep the pause button on. We check our emails, our messaging channels and even attend some meetings in our downtime. A staggering 65% of us eat into our leave time with work, making it a regular, almost expected occurrence.

Great onboarding: a secret weapon against attrition?

More than 1/4 of new hires leave a company within 6 weeks. More than 1/3 leave in the first 6 months. And of those who leave in the first year, half were thinking of leaving for 6 months or more. The impact of disengaged, one-foot-out-the-door employees on existing employees and clients is well known not to mention their reduced productivity levels and larger number of errors (Jaman et al, 2002).
