For your career, who do you go to for help and support?

Help comes in many forms and from various sources. Some help you can get for free and some will cost money.

I recommend utilizing the free resources when appropriate and for as many things as you can. And, it’s important to know that free resources may only get you so far depending on what your goals and challenges are.

I’ve seen many women get stuck in their career or with a situation at work because they keep going back to the people in their life who will offer their help for free, but who don’t have the expertise to guide this woman through her challenge effectively.

Knowing whom you can go to for what will save you time and energy, and not put any undue pressure on those in your support system who want to help but can’t give you what you need.

This episode will cover the types of help you can receive in your career for free, and how to utilize those people.

How are you doing getting regular physical activity into your weekly routine?

No judgement here. When there’s a lot going on it’s easy to free up time by skipping the workout, walk or bike you had already planned.

In an emergency this is a logical move, but how often it is vital to skip the workout to handle a true emergency?

Physical activity is not neutral. There are either benefits to getting in some activity or there are consequences for not being active. These consequences effect you mentally as well as physically.

Given that, it is vital that you get regular movement in. And, you don’t need a gym membership or do intense workouts to be physically active.

This episode is building on the last episode on mental and emotional wellness and making the case for exercise as a leadership development practice.

Perhaps never before has the focus of mental and emotional wellness been at the forefront of leadership. 

According to the Harvard Business Review, “mental health challenges are now the norm among employees across all organizational levels.” In 2021, during a follow-up study to their 2019 Mental Health at Work Report, seventy-six percent of respondents reported at least one symptom of a mental health condition in the past year, up from 59% in 2019. 

The pandemic impacted every area of people’s lives, and has been a leading factor in an increase of mental health concerns. And it is not behind us yet.

Taking care of yourself is vital: if you are depleted your health, work, and ability to support others will suffer.

This episode explores why, as a leader, taking care of your mental and emotional wellness, and supporting your team to do so as well, is critical.
