WOM2118 - Mental Health: The State of Mind and the Bottom Line

‐ Nov 4, 2021 1:30pm

Mental health influences one's ability to work productively and cope with the stresses of daily living. A healthy psychological state is central to performance for a knowledge worker. For if one's mind is occupied by anxious thoughts, there is less space available for critical thinking and problem-solving.  The COVID-19 pandemic intensified an already demanding profession. As business leaders, we were thrust into an increasingly complex and ambiguous regulatory environment. While at home, we had new daily stressors- many of which we never experienced before. To thrive in this new world, we all need to learn how to tend to our state of mind. As we do, we will see an increasingly positive impact on our bottom line.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify how personal development initiatives increase business performance
  • Recognize the common signs of stress and angst in one's self and in another
  • Describe how to effectively intervene and best manage employees who are experiencing anxiety or depression
  • Discuss the personal story of a CPA who has been profoundly impacted by mental health challenges
