Why is the topic of mental health issues at work constantly gaining in importance? What does it imply for leadership? How can leaders find a good way to deal with mental health issues at work?
These and many other questions were the focus of the Best Practice talk Healthy (Self-) Leadership: Management of Stress and Mental Health Issues at Work, led by Dr. Anna Brzykcy and Dr. Lars Kreissner. Having background in both management research and therapy, our speakers shared crucial insights on the role of (self-) leadership for organizational mental health. They also elaborated about how leader behaviour can influence employee mental health, and introduced concrete management tools for leaders to promote mental health in their teams as well as their own mental health.
We would like to thank our speakers and all participants and look forward to the continuing exchange!
