Missing in Action: Corporate Leaders and Employee Wellness

Missing in Action: Corporate Leaders and Employee Wellness
August 29, 2012 at 3:30 - 4:30 PM ET
Margaret Moore, Founder, CEO & Executive Coach(Wellcoaches Corporation)
This session will explore the concept of personal and organizational thriving and why it drives performance, inspire participants to focus on their personal thriving, and provide a framework to explore thriving with colleagues.

In many corporate cultures, leaders wear a badge of honor for their sacrifice of personal health and well-being for their careers and work. These badges of sacrifice serve as brakes on the best efforts of corporate wellness initiatives. At best, many leaders are at the sidelines of corporate wellness programs, ignoring them or wishing they would disappear from their daily avalanche of communications. At worst, leaders indirectly sabotage corporate wellness programs by not providing permission to their employees for self-care and well-being, and by inadvertently creating health-damaging stress. In parallel, leaders aim to optimize employee engagement, while operating in a fashion that inadvertently undermines engagement and well-being.

The model for thriving to be presented is science-based and integrates the concepts of a thriving mindset, based upon the latest neuroscience, with physical thriving. It explains how mental and physical health are co-dependent. It includes a new model for a healthy mind, one that is calm, focused, undistracted, creative, and productive, which is explored in the presenter's co-authored Harvard Health book, Organize Your Mind, Organize Your Brain.

Examples of how the thriving model has been used in coaching executives to improve their well-being and, as a result, improves their performance will be provided. Many executives believe that if they put their health first, their performance will suffer. We will explore how to help leaders outgrow this worldview and discover that when they put their health first, and they thrive, their performance improves in ways not imagined.

I joined this session late as I had signed into a different session which was not relevant to my area of work. This session was excellent and I wish I had caught it from the beginning. I am hoping I can download the slides as I was writing like a fiend and did not capture all I wanted to. 5 / 5
