To help you stay well, we at Suffolk Mind use an ‘organising idea’ that we all have physical and emotional needs and a set of skills and resources that we’re born with to meet those needs. This is referred to as the Emotional Needs & Resources Model. We have 12 physical and emotional needs. Status and respect is one of those needs.
We all need to feel valued and that our efforts are appreciated by other people. The way to meet this need in a healthy way is to give people positive feedback for what they have done and tell them why it made a difference.
Workplace Wellbeing Trainer, Penny Tyndale-Hardy explains how to meet your need for status and respect during this current pandemic.
