Q: What’s your honest and authentic thoughts on these particular statements from the world of work?
True? False? Other?

Leaders must establish a work climate which acknowledges that employees may become overwhelmed with the personal issues they struggle with.

The only way employees will be open to receiving help is if the environment in which they work endorses that getting help is OK.

It is important to emphasize that seeking help in times of distress displays courage, strength, responsibility, and good judgement.

If you are concerned about someone at work, talk to them about how they are doing.

Most people say that they made it through stressful and traumatic events because of their friends, family members and co-workers. Providing basic peer support is crucial to keeping each other healthy.

No one has time for self-serving people. If you’re sucking energy and resources out of someone but never pouring any back in, you’re taking up valuable space.
