As a business leader, you have the opportunity to transform the social and emotional health and productivity of your organizations, from the top down. This is why we created #SameHere C-Suite. Through the consistent use of vulnerability, empathy, and exercise, you can ensure that your culture champions a safe and proactive mental health environment, where all employees feel comfortable asking for and receiving help, without repercussions. You can provide employees with the tools and skills necessary to handle any stressful or traumatic situation, and grow and learn from any challenges they may encounter. You can even show employees that facing challenges and overcoming them, can give them the experience and perspective they may need to become great leaders. Maybe you’re already doing much of the above. Maybe you want to learn more about these strategies. It doesn’t matter where you are starting from. Leaders living these ideals, together, is what will ultimately break down the walls we have seen in most industries for far too long. You can be part of the solution. We ask every leader who joins our Alliance to take a pledge to live the Three Pillars of #SameHere C-Suite, below. Following these three pillars will help your company ensure you have: a positive mental wellness culture, happier employees, fewer absences, a decrease in office conflicts, greater collaboration, and an increase in company productivity. This all starts with you, the leader! With our employees, we so often don’t know what is happening “beneath the surface,” that is taking a toll on their health, and taking a toll on your company’s bottom line. However, vulnerability coming from the owner of the company or key stakeholder, makes it acceptable for others to open up and even proactively work on their mental wellness. With the #SameHere C-Suite Alliance, we are inviting you to join us, to change the way industries approach this vital topic.
