In This Episode . . .
This episode features the always-inspiring Katrina Strohl, Psychological Safety Consultant and host of the podcast Absolutely Not! Kishshana and Katrina discuss how a toxic work environment led Katrina to decide to take her own life and how that experience kickstarted their journey toward advocating for mental health and encouraging others to set personal boundaries at work and enforce their own psychological safety. Is your work making you ill?
This conversation addresses what messages you are receiving in your work environment and knowing that your worth has nothing to do with your work. We need to learn how to observe the behavior, learn to label where necessary, and find the vocabulary to define the harm in our work environments.
