Why an open culture is so important
In this latest Reset the Podcast, I chat to my colleague Geoff McDonald, perhaps one of the most passionate campaigners globally for mental health and wellbeing.
Geoff’s story is not of one personal reset but two. As a result of mental health illness and the loss of one of his closest friends through #suicide, Geoff reset his professional life to dedicate it to the wellbeing cause.
During our conversation, Geoff talks very powerfully about why his closest friend’s death affected him so much. We also chat about his drive to ensure that workplaces everywhere spend as much time creating mental and emotional safety as they do physical safety.
And Geoff’s most powerful observation about why wellbeing matters so much - the brighter the light, the darker the shadow. A phrase which is a powerful reminder to us all that you never really know how someone is feeling inside.
Are you a bright light who has hidden their wellbeing under your shadow? What has enabled you to open up and share your story?
