Episode #51: How proactivity leads to improved professional performance
Research shows that learning skills to help cope with mental health issues not only reduces one’s risk of experiencing psychological distress, but also enhances one’s general wellbeing and professional performance on a day-to-day basis.
Positive psychologist and founder of The Positivity Institute Dr Suzy Green joins host Jerome Doraisamy on this episode of The Wellness Daily Show to suggest how workplaces can overcome societal stigmas by way of implementing a variety of proactive approaches to mental health.
Dr Green outlines key aspects of self-determination theory, explains why education and training needs to be ongoing rather than one-off, and shares some practical methods for organisations and employees to be proactive in this area.
