To foster a high-performance workplace, there needs to be dual accountability between both the organisation and its people. Great progress has been made reducing the stigma around mental health difficulties and we now need to move beyond that and understand mental health and mental skills in the context of well-being, performance, and leadership. As an organisation we need to promote to create an environment where employees are supported and can thrive. As an individual, we need to make sure we can apply ourselves in the workplace and optimise our contribution. By treating our mental health as a skill set, we can identify the mental skills we need to strengthen to ensure we can combat the daily challenges of our lives, optimise our work performance, and lead effortlessly.
In this event, David Shillington gains insights from Youngcare CEO Anthony Ryan and Adventure Director Glenn Azar to identify those keys mental skills needed to feel your best and lead from the front. We’ll talk tactics on how to strengthen them to boost our energy, build our resilience, come into work on a bad day and do good work, sharpen our focus, and lead with confidence effortlessly.
