Mental Health for Leaders

Most leaders are passionate about positively influencing the emerging talent around them. They encourage, support, and nurture their team’s abilities and emotional intelligence. They ensure the development of strong team culture and emotional well-being. The main goal of leaders is to accomplish the mission of creating a secure foundation to embrace the individuality of every team member.

However, leadership often comes with a set of personal challenges: workplace stress, ever-increasing workloads, and potential mental health issues. Mental health issues such as depression, anxiety, and stress are becoming common in the workplace. Sometimes, the workload, deadlines, and duties disrupt our well-being, including our physical, mental, and emotional faculties. It is becoming more common for leaders to question their abilities due to their inability to tackle said challenges. The need to identify, minimize, and hopefully prevent mental health risks for leaders is more necessary than ever.

According to the Mental Health Commission of Canada, one in five Canadians will experience a mental health issue or illness this year. Leaders of organizations are not exempt. They may be at more risk due to the daily ever-growing pressure.

Mental Health Coaching

Mental health coaching for leaders can help them identify the underlying factors causing their anxiety and stress. Mental health coaching can assist leaders in developing awareness for both their own and their team’s well-being. Typical outcomes of mental health coaching for leaders' mental health include improved empathy (and self-empathy), increased emotional intelligence, greater creativity, decision-making, and enhanced general well-being.

Why Consider Mental Health Coaching?

A business or organization is only as good as its leaders. The performance (and mental health) of management directly impacts the company's performance. Leaders shape organizational culture and influence their staff’s morale and output. Mental health coaching for leaders provides an opportunity to ensure management is performing at their best. As they are constantly under pressure, they require their own ‘self-care’ initiatives. Mental health coaching is just that, an investment in self-care.
