Company Culture and Mental Health
Author: Liz Frome
Over the past couple of years, it has become more important for management to not only focus on their own leadership wellness and personal longevity but also there is a huge need to increase support to their team members in the same key areas.
Leaders need to keep increasing their knowledge, research best practices and continue to add new resources to navigate these trends in mental health and company culture.
Below are some work life practices that can help keep a balance in your company and with your group you manage.
Tips to help for 2023:
Effect time usage:
The practice of spending your time effectively to achieve your goals.
Manage your time:
Setting personal boundaries to support a work-life balance and remembering to fill your own cup first.
Expand your supporters:
Identifying key helpers, supporters and advisors. Don’t forget to ask for help when you need it.
Build your confidence:
Taking note of your strengths and experience dealing with uncertainty, challenges and change.
Appreciate simple pleasures:
Identifying and putting into practice the activities that bring you joy, satisfaction and fulfillment.
Think about your health:
Putting a plan in place that works for you, including (but not limited to) fitness, nutrition and mindfulness.
Have regular check ins:
Check in with yourself on a weekly or monthly basis to see where you are and make sure you are checking in with your staff. Things do change quickly so please do not let too much time go by.
Communicate any change right away:
2023 is an uncertain year for many and if any change may be coming it is best to communicate to your staff right away. You want to make sure you keep your team not guessing what might be next.
Me in ’23:
Finally, make sure to prioritize yourself in 2023 to support your well-being. If you are not well you can not be there for your team.
