    COO & Principal, Mind Share Partners

  • Description:
  • Using company case examples, this session explores concrete actions that leaders and managers can take to shift the culture of mental health at work. We provide a strategy framework and discuss how reversing stigma can unlock positive outcomes.
  • Take-Aways
  • • Mental health is not a benefit. Rather, mental health should be a strategic priority that will unlock a powerful culture.
  • • Leaders need to share their story and lead with vulnerability to reduce the stigma and lower the barriers for people to talk about mental health.
  • • Telling people to “take care of yourselves” is not sufficient. Leaders need to change the way that we and our teams work to create sustainable workplaces.
  • • A strategic approach to mental health includes people skills and training, policies, benefits, and accountability that starts from the senior leadership level.
