Business leaders and their mental health

15 Feb 2019

Leading a business means working under pressure. Stress is a real risk. Directors are encouraged to promote physical and mental wellbeing within their company - but sometimes they neglect their own wellbeing. Does a leader feel they have to hide a mental health issue? What benefits follow when a director shares their story?

There is no such thing as an indestructible business leader. Directors are talented people who do exceptional things - sometimes they need help.

In this feature the IoD presents survey results which show that company directors have a very human response to the pressures of business life. We encourage business leaders to protect and nurture the most important thing a decision maker has - a healthy mind.
