Pre COVID-19, the data suggested that we were on the verge of a mental health crisis among entrepreneurs and leaders in small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in Canada - and around the world.
This is a huge concern to all of us, because 99.8% of all Canadian businesses are SMEs, who employ 89.6% of the total private sector workforce. SMEs contribute 52.5% to Canadian private sector GDP, and 85.3% of all new jobs in Canada are created by SMEs. Entrepreneurs and small businesses also build community, with $68 of every $100 spent in small businesses kept in community.
The bottom line?
When SMEs and entrepreneurs have resiliency, wellbeing and mental health, the country can experience economic health.
The challenge is that for many SMEs - along with leaders and executives - “mental health” and resiliency in the workplace is a black box. They don’t fully understand it, how to support it, or have the tools for creating a psychologically safe workplace that drives engagement and critical business outcomes. This Masterclass on Workplace Resiliency changes all of that, and provides leaders and teams in either the for-profit or not-for-profit sector with the tools, strategies, and support needed.
