Your attitude to things can decide everything
Thrive Global
November 19, 2019
How you look at things makes the difference. People see things from different perspectives. One person perceives the glass as half full, the other person sees it as half empty. An unforeseen situation at work is normal for you, and your colleague may be under stress in exactly the same situation. When our mindset is […]

Stories of success: A refelction with friends on the global pandemic
Stories of Success
October 15, 2020
This week’s podcast is a panel discussion with four former guests. We took a long time to manage all our diaries and I was glad when we finally got together to discuss Covid19, personal development, and how it seems the positive things that came from lock down. An episode going deep.

We are connecting more now, more intensely, and have less in-room tensions and emotions, going from one video call to another. Are we making the right connection? And what are we taking away from it, and how do we avoid the negative impact his pandemic and lockdown has on our our children for years to come.

How to manage mental wellbeing at work
Stephanie Schaffner
March 21, 2021
How to manage your mental wellbeing at #work
So who’s responsible?
Let’s start with the employers. They have a legal and moral responsibility to look after the wellbeing of their employees...
Develop the emotional #intelligence of line managers conduct an evaluation of all your managers from shop floor to top floor.
We need to train them properly because they’re going to have to manage employees in this new age of the hybrid model. They will have to manage their employee’s excessive workloads. If their social and interpersonal skills are not up to standard then provide the necessary training. Make sure you recruit people who have parity between their social and their technical skills.

No long hours
When employees start to send emails at 8pm, put a stop to it. Make sure your people have a life because it means they will also be more productive. We know that if people consistently work long hours then they become ill. Stop the long hours #culture to avoid negatively impacting the mental wellbeing of your staff as well as their productivity.

Out Of Office
Stop the email overload. There’s no need to email during out of office hours unless it is absolutely necessary. Email is killing the workforce because it’s on 24/7. Line Managers must begin to exert control on this if they are not already doing so. That means no emails in the evenings, on weekends, or during an employee’s annual leave period.

Create manageable workloads
Manageable #workloads and realistic deadlines are essential. Don’t overload to the point where they can’t cope. It’s as simple as that, folks!

Stay in touch
Make sure you contact each of your direct reports, especially those working remotely. Be sure to contact them at least once or twice a week, but not about work, instead, about how they are getting on. In other words, listen to your employees. Understand what they are doing and learn to recognise symptoms of stress.

Negotiate the where and the when
If you would like to work flexibly, then negotiate that with your employer so you get the right balance for you and your family.
Prioritise: what’s important today?
Ask yourself: What work do I have to get done today that is critical?

Stick to a routine
When working from home, it is crucial that you #develop and then stick to a basic routine.

Stay connected: meet your social needs
For your mental wellbeing, ensure you keep in contact with your colleagues, your boss, friends, etc. Your social needs must be met. Your mental wellbeing stems from your #social interactions.

Love thy neighbour
Oddly enough, this final point is one that most people would not think of. Look after one another. The more you give to someone else, the more your own #mental #wellbeing will be enhanced.

Healthy work environment starts with the leadership culture
LinkedIn
June 09, 2020
A healthy work environment starts with the leadership culture.

In modern, agile companies should exist a healthy work culture.

This healthy work culture starts with the leaders. Leadership is a kind of mentoring and role modeling.
People follow people. If the manager practices an unhealthy work style, the team and the department are under pressure to do the same.

The constant availability puts many employees under pressure.

If you too want to implement a healthy working environment for your company and are unsure whether you are dealing with stress unhealthily, do not hesitate and arrange a strategy call as soon as possible.

Don´t let your thoughts stress you out
LinkedIn
June 08, 2020
️ Don’t let your thoughts stress you ️

In everyday stress, we often reinforce it with our way of thinking.

"What will the boss say if I can't keep the deadline? Dear colleague Müller will certainly complain to Ms. Schneider. ”
Do you think any of these thoughts sound familiar?

First of all, we should be aware of the following:

Thoughts are not facts.

You can help yourself in a stressful situation with the following methods:

Be aware of what happens in the worst case if the deadline cannot be met.
Does life depend on it? In most cases not.

In the next step, think about how you have dealt with such a situation before? What resources were you able to use?
Can you possibly use one of these resources for the current situation?

Look at the situation from the outside. What would you advise your best friend, sister or colleague to do in this situation?

Look back at the situation: How important would the situation be to you in 5 years?

I hope you find those methods helpful and I´m excited about your comment in the box below! ️
