As a leader, your employees play a major part in the responsibility of the mental health of their team or company. A leader’s ability to role model positive mental health can have a remarkable influence on team culture, management practices and the experience of employees. The primary responsibility of leaders is to create an environment for people to do their best work, enjoy what they do and feel fulfilled in the work environment. Failing to take care of employee mental health and wellbeing can have a ripple effect throughout the team or company. This leads to undermining trust, engagement and psychological safety, the strongest attribute of high performing teams.
