The CEO’s Reading List for World Mental Health Day
Each year, 10 October is marked as World Mental Health Day, but the unprecedented challenges of 2020 have made the issue more important than ever.
2. Connect by Dr Guy Lubitsh and Dr Tami Lubitsh-White (FT Publishing)
As the subtitle of this book explains, this is a really practical read for leaders who are looking to “resolve conflict, improve communication and strengthen relationships”. It is written by two psychologists, so you can be assured that all the advice is firmly backed by scientific evidence and real-life case studies.
Connect will help you to understand what kind of ‘connector’ you are, and then provide easy to use tools to manage workplace stress and anxiety, speak truth to power and support the mental health of your team in a structured way. Connect could well become your go-to guide to manage people when times get tough.
