3 ways principals can support better mental wellness in their teams

Extended lockdowns have taken a toll on real estate professionals that we need to address that is even more important in a hectic market.

As we finally start to emerge out of lockdown and into a booming property market, it’s tempting to assume that everything will be “business as usual” again. 

But we’re dealing with employees and teams who have been anxious, stressed, frustrated - and even angry - over a long extended period and research from the World Economic Forum shows this actually affects how our brains function. 

Put those teams into a frantic market and we can expect higher than normal levels of burnout and exhaustion - which is already overly high in real estate as an industry. 

Here are three ways to support the mental wellness of your team. 

  1. Engage your teams in a conversation about mental health

It’s important that we acknowledge the stresses everyone has been under with Covid. Encourage your team to share their experiences, or if you would like a guided introduction to understanding mental health in real estate, you can book one of the Rise team to present at your next team meeting.

  1. Download the Real Care App

Every single person who works in real estate - and their families - can have mental wellness support in their pocket for free with the Real Care App. It’s available from Apple or Google Play and can help you de-stress, deal with bad habits, monitor your sleep and exercise, encourage good habits and manage your finances. Importantly, it also has access to emergency help lifelines including three free phone counselling sessions courtesy of Domain.

  1. Share information that normalises mental health

At the Rise Initiative, we’ve created a library of resources for principals and managers to share with their teams including promotional posters you can put around the office, flyers you can share and the latest articles and data on mental wellness.

That’s three things you can do, but if you just do one thing, you can make an enormous difference.
