It is important for individuals to keep in touch with their own mental health, however, anxiety and a fear of disappointment is what hinders most people from asking for help — which is where our leaders come in.

The role of our leaders is fundamental to improving the situation. An anxious leader cannot expect anything other than anxious followers. Right now, we need leaders with high emotional intelligence who are fine-tuned not just to take care of themselves, but also fully aware of the impact they have on others  […] It is important for managers to be trained to be on the lookout for early signs of anxiety before they escalate into something more serious and detrimental to the workplace as a whole.
