Talking about Mental Health as a Manager isn’t always easy...
As a manager you play a pivotal role in modeling and sustaining positive day to day practices to promote high levels of performance and wellbeing.
Do you sometimes worry about saying the ‘wrong’ thing?
Are you often concerned about how best to support someone?
Are you clear on what your boundaries as a manager are?
But doing so is essential...
In the wake of COVID-19, it has never felt more important to recognise when your team members may be struggling, know how to support them, and take proactive steps to keeping everyone well.
In 2020/21 stress, depression or anxiety accounted for 50% of all work-related ill health cases. This is costly not only on a human level, but also for businesses: disengagement, diminished creativity and productivity, pressurised teams and strained relationships. As a manager these statistics can feel daunting and out of your control.
