    In this week’s episode, we talk all about the lessons I learned from supporting one of my team through a depressive episode last year.

    ● The importance of educating yourself, as a leader, on mental health
    ● How by sharing your experiences, you give other people permission to share too
    ● Why it’s ok to not know what to do, and as long as your intention is pure, you’ll find your way
    With special thanks to Anna for this episode and for being so vulnerable and open about her experiences, and for allowing us to share them with you all.

Amazing listen

It’s been brilliant listening to such an inspiring podcast, the vulnerability shared is admirable and made me realise a lot of us are going through similar struggles.

So many useful tips have been shared that have really helped me to develop my leadership.

Can’t wait for the next series😁

An inspirational podcast for leaders

Truly great podcast. Being a leader I often find it lonely and as if I have the weight of the world on my shoulders. It is good to hear that I am not alone. Hearing other leaders vulnerabilities has really helped me gain some perspective. Well done Jo keep up the good work!
