It is Marcel Daane‘s personal mission to raise a deeper level of awareness that organizational success is dependent on the collective mental fitness of every stake-holder within the organization. He spends much of his free time researching and creating content that will help drive home that message.
He believes that one of the greatest challenges for any company is the understanding that even though performance may be the realm of the organization, the lifestyle choices that drive mental capacity for performance (managing stress, sound nutrition, exercise, alcohol consumption, and so on) are really the realm of the individual. What this means is that even though the company could never mandate that employees take better care of their brains, they can only try to inspire and facilitate it.
Inspiring and facilitating mental capacity in your circles might actually help you expand your positive influence and improve productivity for you and your team/organization.
