PRAISE For the Book
John Smibert, co-author of The Wentworth Prospect
“I wish this book was available when I was a manager. It’s workplace mental health advice delivered in a very constructive, engaging, and relatable way.
SAFE Conversations is a wonderful workbook for Managers. It applies simple, everyday language to help managers and peers to identify mental health issues in those around them. And then provides great advice on how to provide appropriate support.”
Alex Girard, National Sales Manager
“In his book, Bill provides tools and techniques that are pragmatic and simple to understand, on how to have successful SAFE conversations. These are based on research and have been tested on hundreds if not thousands of people over the years. The book is like a toolkit that all managers should always carry with them.”
Dan Churches, Regional Vice President ANZ
“This book is for leaders and managers who have an awareness of mental health challenges in the workforce but don’t feel they have the right skills to play their part comfortably and confidently. It has solutions, frameworks and methodologies that you can begin to learn and apply. This is a monumental effort and a commendable piece of work. Your heart and compassion and genuine intention to share your understanding, experience and insights comes through.”
