Session Summary:

In this session, Clinical and Corporate Psychologist Dr Martyn Newman provides 5 key psychological insights that integrate the science of human potential with emotional Intelligence and mindfulness to help coaches support leaders through crisis.

Challenging social crises and economic recessions have been studied for decades and the science shows that economic downturns are associated not only with a loss of productivity, but also with increased psychological distress and negative mental health outcomes. Employers and business leaders have both a responsibility and an opportunity to protect the mental health and wellbeing of their employees and lead them through this current crisis.
