Of course, the pandemic took us all – governments, organisations and individuals – by surprise. However, many of us have now moved from the ‘crisis’ phase of dealing with the pandemic, into a more considered ‘new normal’.

If you’re currently in fulltime employment, the change and uncertainty that has come hand-in-hand with the COVID-19 pandemic may have understandably left you with a feeling that you need to somehow prove yourself, or, position your role as ‘indispensable’. After all, this is a highly pressurised time and will inevitably lead many to worry about the future. Failing to manage this situation in...

This year’s World Mental Health Day feels different. For most business leaders, supporting positive mental health practices – both personally and amongst our employees – is a priority every year. But, this year has taken its importance to a whole new level. Mental health has fallen under the spotlight with increasing regularity throughout the course of this year, and with good reason. The...
