Hi All,

Sharing some Atlassian resources that may be helpful:

 

1. This episode from Atlassian's Work Check Podcast hosted by Christine Dela Rosa features the debate "Should your manager be responsible for your emotional wellbeing?"

 

The role of the manager has evolved dramatically since the days of barking orders and closed doors. But with modern managers being tasked with managing productivity, morale, and development… are we asking too much? Today’s debate digs into how responsible managers should be for the emotional wellbeing of their team members.

 

Arguing in favor of managers taking on this emotional labor is debater Eli Mishkin, joined by workplace wellness consultant Laura Putnam who shares just how much your manager already affects your wellbeing… and even your heart health! Debating against this responsibility is Marshall Walker Lee with support from Dr. Mahreen Khan, a Senior Researcher in the People Insights Team at Atlassian, who explains the risks of putting too much on managers.

 

Check here for episode references and transcript.
