As leaders, mental health isn’t at the top of our list of responsibilities. We should not only make sure our team is getting the job done, but we also need to be aware of how our team is functioning in the workplace and watch out for warning signs of mental and physical health struggles. On this episode of Authentic Living with Roxanne, we welcome Dr. Ronke Komolafe to share her expertise about recognizing the signs and how to assist those who need help.
Quote:“Most of what we experience in terms of people having challenges at work or people having health care challenges comes from chronic conditions or trauma.”Dr. Ronke Komolafe
This was such a great interview packed with so much interesting information about mental health in the workplace that we decided to turn it into a 2-part series. Be sure to tune in again next week for part II.
