As a business owner, you’re expected to be thought leader, cheerleader, vision provider and all round good example for your team. But how do you do that? Especially when there are days when all you want to do is stay in bed and pull the covers over your head.
I'm excited to introduce our guest for this episode, Mark Butler, a mental health expert and strategist. I first heard Mark a few months ago and I was drawn to his insights on mental health, mindset, and high performance, especially during these sometimes overwhelming post pandemic times. Mark shares his own entrepreneurial journey to where he is now, and how he helps organisations manage mental wellbeing and psychological health in the workplace.
We also talked about:
- Australia’s new psychosocial hazards legislation that may well have an impact on your business
- The characteristics of high performing teams and what those look like
- How to avoid burnout as a leader
- Mark’s approach to working with high performance teams
This conversation will resonate with anyone facing tough hurdles, not just business leaders, inspiring us all to turn our struggles into strengths. Have a listen and please share the episode with others who will benefit from it, too.
