A surge of mental health issues surfaced as Covid measures drove us into isolation. It acted as a trigger for organisations to address workplace mental health as a business imperative, post-pandemic.
Forget yoga classes, gym memberships and mindfulness apps. More and more organisations are realising that beyond ticking boxes, these do little to address mental health issues at work.
Yet many continue to employ these band-aid solutions instead of attending to issues at source which are unfortunately shoved in the “too hard” basket. Since the pandemic, mental health support has gone from a nice-to-have to a business imperative.
If you think that people reach high performance without specific strategies, think again. Whether it be leadership or presentation, they reach the top of their game through sheer hard work, a resilient attitude and a structured approach.
The mental game once learnt, is there for life. So why not acquire it and create a career path you would like. Having an edge over others means assured success to your competition.
The word “emotional” incites an image of a person losing their cool, off the normal spectrum of what is deemed acceptable. It is a word that is misconstrued by so many who veer away from their emotions.
I am usually on the receiving end of these people as I respond to the question “What field of work are you in?” Interestingly, I say as a Master Trainer of Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) that I help people get in touch with their emotions. I elevate their emotional intelligence which is an innate sense given to all of us, left untapped by many.
What makes top sales performers crush quotas? The answer is CONSISTENCY! They know what they are doing and they repeat their performance over and over again.
I came to realise this when I began my adventure with Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP). An epistemology (knowing how we know what we know), this field sat at the very heart of high performance.
