Without a doubt, it is presently much more challenging and stressful to be an organizational and/or team leader. Now more than ever, leaders need to be able to navigate effectively around stricter and more complex employment/workplace legislations, heightened sensitivity to human rights issues, increased recognition of psychological hazards in the workplace as well increased diversity in the modern day workforce.
In addition, leaders, just like any other employees, may experience psychological illness or injury, alcohol/substance dependency, medical concerns, cognitive deterioration, dysfunctional conflicts, harassment, bullying, discrimination, or other difficulties at home and/or at work.
As such, in addition to taking care of their employees/members, leaders must also take good care of themselves, especially if they are experiencing some of the challenges listed above.
HOW WE CAN HELP:
Insight’s therapists and leadership coaches can support a leader’s self-care and professional development journey by providing one or more of the following:
- Helping the leader to assess their current psychological health and work stress condition, cognitive functional capacity, and upon request, also their skills and competency in targeted leadership areas.
- Establishing a care and development plan that is specifically tailored to the leader’s needs.
- Providing specific coaching, counselling, treatment, support, and/or developmental exercises that would help the leader to address their specific psychological, cognitive, and/or developmental concerns.
