Renowned industrialist Andrew Carnegie describes teamwork as “…the ability to work together toward a common vision, the ability to direct individual accomplishments toward organizational objectives.” Cohesive workplace teams are just that, productive, efficient, creative, and engaged. Great teams translate into bottom-line benefits for organizations. For organizations, managers, and team members in the workplace, team cohesion is critical.

Connecting the Dots 

Dr. Monica Vermani

Mental health plays a huge role in our overall well-being. Just as good mental health positively affects our physical health, poor mental health takes a toll on our wellbeing. What most people do not know is that mental health issues often show up as physical/physiological symptoms. For senior managers and business operators, building awareness around the relationship between physical symptoms and mental health can have a positive impact on absenteeism, presenteeism, and bottom-line costs.
