Banishing Toxic Workplace Culture with Lindsay Recknell
Show Notes

Gone are the days when it was discouraged to talk about our personal lives, feelings, and overall well-being in the workplace and although it has been difficult to reverse some of our toxic habits, we at least understand there is a correlation between mental health and productivity. This week’s episode 84 of Female Founders Breaking Boundaries is about banishing toxic workplace culture!  

Have you ever felt like you were WAY too busy, stressed out, burnt out, and overwhelmed, so you were advised to delegate some tasks to take things off your plate and free up some time? Except, maybe it didn't work. If getting out of the day-to-day in your business was as simple as hiring more people, then why are you still feeling overwhelmed and burned out? You are not alone! Sometimes, simply delegating tasks doesn’t work and instead shifts your workload from “doing” to “managing.”

I invite you to use the exercise that our own C-Suite clients use to take the first step in turning your team into a well-oiled, self-managed machine- and get you out of the delegation catch-22. Download the exercise here to get started!

In this episode of Female Founders Breaking Boundaries, my guest Lindsay Recknell shares the importance of implementing proactive, not reactive benefits plans so that we can disrupt the negative thread of toxicity in the workplace through mental health and self-awareness. Some of the things Lindsay and I cover in this episode are:

  • What is emotional intelligence, how it shows up in the workplace, and how you can use it to become a better leader. 
  • The impact that self-awareness has on us as leaders. 
  • Flexible and creative ways you can implement mental health support in the workplace. 
  • Being a conscious leader by creating a culture that values boundaries and reverses the generational leadership habits that are keeping us stuck. 

I think we can all agree that prioritizing mental health and practicing self-awareness and emotional intelligence is the key to a more productive workforce that translates to business growth and increased profits.
