#037 – Bringing a Focus to Mental Health in the Workplace with Lis Cashin

podcast Lis Cashin

At only 13 years of age, Lis Cashin accidentally killed her friend after throwing a javelin at a school sports day.  In one short moment, her life went from hopes of winning a sports medal to an outcome that was more tragic and traumatic than anyone could have ever imagined.

The trauma of this day profoundly influenced how Lis’ life would unfold.  For years, she found herself making decisions that ultimately punished herself, related to her immense guilt and shame over the accident.

On this episode of The Workplace Communication Podcast, Lis shares her own journey to mental wellbeing, as well as tons of takeaways from her professional life, where she works with individuals and teams to help them to unlock potential and transform mental wellbeing.
