Following months of being on “soldier mode”, we’ve all experienced overwhelm during the Covid-19 crisis. Now more than ever we need to be taking care of ourselves. 

Michael catches up with clinical psychologist Dr Vikki Barnes – a true expert in positive psychology. She is the Founder of Positive Wellbeing, a consultancy which supports the mental health of organisations and their people. Vikki has also worked with the NHS and Virgin, in clinical and strategic roles.

Tune in as we explore Positive Leadership, using mental health language at work, how to switch off as leaders – and Vikki’s experience of meeting Richard Branson on Necker Island.
