The Importance Of Focusing On Mental Health In The New World of Work 2.0


Welcome to Episode Forty Nine (Season Three) of the Executive Career Jump Videocast with your host, Andrew MacAskill!

This week’s episode is a little different as it was a “live” with two of my fellow LinkedIn Changemakers Neil Laybourn and Sonya Barlow discussing how the world of work is changing like never before and what does version 2.0 looks and feel like. It was great to welcome lots of people from the ECJ community and discuss their questions with my fellow Changemakers.

Neil started his career as a Fitness Instructor/Personal Trainer however his life changed forever in 2008 when he talked a man down off a bridge who was contemplating suicide.  Since then he has spent time helping organisations eradicate the stigma of mental health.  He was recognised by the Pride of Britain Awards in 2014 for his work.  Today he is helping companies large and small to understand and action their mental health and well-being plans.

Sonya Barlow is an award-winning entrepreneur and author.  After spending time in the technology industries Sonya has transitioned to running her own diversity and inclusion consultancy and also a not-for-profit organisation LMF which is changing the narrative of inclusion with women and minorities individuals.  She is also an acclaimed TED Talk presenter.

In this episode you will discover:

  • The amazing and inspirational stories of Neil and Sonia and why they do what they do. 
  • Why making mental health as important as physical health is vital to our new world and way of working.
  • How YOU can make a difference to those around you in the battle for good mental health.
  • How to start that process within your organisation to ensure the very best mental health for your employees and yourself.
