Leaders are in PAIN!
How many leaders do you know of where their marriages are on the rocks, they are disassociated from their children, they use some form of substance abuse, ie alcohol, drugs, gambling, sex, etc. to mask/cope with the pressure of their mental health issues, ie depression, anxiety, overwhelm, imposter syndrome and the like. Ever noticed how mental health is palatable to talk about in the workplace at the employee level buts it's NEVER spoken about at the senior leadership level.
Stigmatisation does exist.
Here's what I am clear on. There are leaders out there hurting right now and most of them would run a mile if they were put in front of me..but for those that are ready to reclaim their power I am their man!
