John Steedman has an honest conversation about mental health
Former COO, WPP AUNZ
Prior to his recent retirement announcement, Steady sat down with Hayley Westoby to discuss mental health and his own personal journey.
Steady, a 3-day-weekend advocate, says the way we work and socialise has changed. Steady shares how he manages his own ups and downs, sets boundaries for a virtual working environment and talks about the importance of trust when it comes to working from home.
Steady also dives into the discussion around his fight to get comments removed from publishing sites, and the direct correlation between negative comments and mental health issues that arise. He feels that everyone experiences mental health issues in some capacity during their lifetime, but we should choose empowerment over shame every time.
