The fastest growing category of disability costs to Canadian employers is depression. A lot of the time, when you are working really hard, no matter how much you put in, you can still feel weak, ashamed and overwhelmed. You can feel like you don’t live up to the expectations of others -- or the ones in your own head. Men lack self-care and feel the societal pressures to perform, causing them to burn out, lash out and depersonalize. Women tend to be over-giving, leaving them exhausted, wondering why they are not enough and feeling underappreciated. As a result, high stress in the workplace causes bad decision making which compromises productivity and growth.
The key to maximizing your strength is by examining the often unspoken challenges of being a man and a woman, and shining a light on the personal and professional pressures that you each uniquely face. Once you factor in all the important areas of your life, you will optimize your energy, rediscover your power and enjoy your work and life again.

When you are under stress, the sympathetic nervous system takes over (your brain basically de-evolves). You feel threatened so the filter between your thoughts and your mouth doesn’t work anymore. This shows up as weird body language, confusing facial expressions and words that can easily be misinterpreted. You also interpret what you hear from whatever emotion you are having at the time instead of a place of logic and objectivity. The result is conflict, poor decision making and substandard work. All of which escalates difficult situations, making it harder to move forward with positive solutions.
Whether you are a police officer who needs to talk someone down, a leader needing to get their team to follow through on a strategic plan or a salesperson looking gain trust, it is essential to learn how to calm the nervous system down so you can be far more effective at getting your points across, managing any stress that comes your way and gaining deeper, healthier relationships.

According to the Mental Health Commission of Canada (MHCC), 70% of Canadians stated that their work experience impacted their mental health negatively; and 78% reported mental health as the primary reason for missing work. Poor self-esteem, anger, depression, anxiety, stress… affects the workplace like poison. Employees dis-engage, complain all the time, don’t play well with others and suck the energy out of every room they walk into. This causes lower productivity, crappy morale and higher turnover.
To get employees back on track, it’s essential to show them how they can reduce their stress, remind them why they wanted to work there in the first place and get them re-engaged. In mastering self-awareness, you and your teams will be able to identity the signs of psychological struggles earlier in the process and be able to pivot to well-being before it causes disruption in your employee’s lives and your company’s bottom line.
