Being mentally resilient in the face of everything the world throws at us can be daunting. Whether it's work, family, friends, international politics... there's a lot of stress on us every day. How is a person supposed to deal? (Psst: I have the answer...).
Okay. I personally don't have the answer. But I'm lucky to know some folks that are certified experts in this area.
You may recall in the last episode of the podcast, Phil, Oliver, Whynde and myself discussed our experiences with mental resiliency over our careers. Frankly this amounted to personal anecdotes and clever observations. None of us are actual experts in mental health (which should be obvious to anyone who watches).
Enter a couple of friends of ours: Dr. Haley Dare and Gavin Richardson of https://www.neurequity.com/. Hayley is a Chartered Consultant Clinical Psychologist with over 25 years’ professional experience and Gavin has extensive experience in designing and implementing transformational workplace mental health initiatives to enhance employee engagement and organizational performance. It turns out that they're ACTUAL experts in this space. Through their work, they help companies around the world ensure their employee's mental wellbeing.
We brought them on to discuss mental resiliency, this time through the lens of professionals.
In this episode:
- Why does mental resiliency matter?
- What are some of the biggest causes of stress for Consultants?
- How does that stress manifest itself? What are some of the impacts?
- What are some of the coping mechanisms?
- How does brain chemistry factor in?
- What are some ways to improve resiliency?
- How do we, as consultants, protect "the asset" ?
You're not gonna want to miss this one... It should be said that if you are in real need of help due to stress or other mental health issues, don't listen to this podcast. Go out and get the help you need. YOU are the asset. Protect it!
