Mental health consistently focuses on what’s ‘wrong’ with us – mental illness.
We champion an alternative approach – Mental Wellness – what is ‘right’ with us.
Three fast and powerful ways to begin this in your organisation:
1. Catch people doing things right – they will be more likely to keep doing them.
2. Focus on post implementation reviews on projects that go well so you can map out repeatable success.
3. Ask everyone – yes every single person, for a strength, talent or passion they have, that would help your organisation that they are not currently having a chance to use on a daily basis – and ensure that they can, and do.
With my love and best wishes to you all.
This is so useful. Companies often spend a fortune on perks and treats but it is the simple things like saying thanks and/or acknowledging when someone has done a good job that make all the difference.
I like idea #three. Going to try that one!
I found this on Facebook last night,
‘Never give up on someone with a mental illness. When “I” is replaced with “we”, illness becomes wellness – Shannon L. Alder’
My mental wellness must be top notch as I read this in 45 seconds.
People say that mental health, or lack of it, is behind the American shootings? Any thoughts?
