#53: Leadership, Mental Health and Life as a CEO with Lisa Rodrigues CBE

Lisa Rodrigues is currently a Writer, Coach and Mental Health Campaigner and has spent 13 years of her career as CEO of Sussex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust. She was awarded a CBE for services to the NHS in 2012, and has become known for challenging the stigma of mental illness whilst suffering with depression and mental health issues herself.

Lisa joins me today to share some of the amazing experiences throughout her career. She talks about how leaders can create diversity in a team, and how to support the diversity in your team. She shares some of the ways leaders can help support colleagues suffering from mental health issues. She also talks about her experiences of feeling imposter syndrome when writing, and how the best communicators are the ones who say things in the simplest ways.


“A team is much stronger when you take it in turns to lead and you don’t all agree with one another. You need voices of dissent, people with different experiences and different backgrounds because otherwise you’ll have a team that looks the same as one another and that is not a healthy team.” Lisa Rodrigues CBE

  • The journey of Lisas career as CEO of Sussex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust.
  • How she created diversity in her team.
  • How to support the diversity in your team.
