Leading with Wellness



88% of the UK population understands lifestyle is the main cause of disease and want to understand how to take control of their health. Only 18.5% feel confident of taking control of their own health. Research shows we want better health, but overwhelmed with information about what we should be doing about our diet and lifestyle so that we can thrive and not just survive.

This programme is designed for all levels of leaders who want to understand how mind-body health can be improved to have a positive effect on the quality of work and life. Learn how to choose and implement individual, sustainable wellness strategies, so you can perform at your best.

A leader needs to be at the top of their game, in peak performance and enthuse a culture of excitement, determination, positivity and energy into self and teams. In today’s competitive and changing world, there is an increased pressure on leaders to perform, handle more, work faster, produce more, rise above competition, navigate complexity and manage a more complex network of stakeholders.

The result often leads to lack of self-care, decreased health and decreased performance. A ripple effect of this can be seen affecting teams and individuals throughout an organisation. Leaders have to reflect and positively act on their mind-body health and that of their teams during unprecedented pressures in recent years.
