Leading Wellbeing Well

Leading Wellbeing Well

Practical tips from inspiring Leaders to build a healthy culture.

One of the things we love about working here at thriving is that we get to work with inspiring leaders.  The sort of people who have the ability to reach inside you, light a fire, give you energy, make you feel valued and special.

Have you noticed that often, if the person leading is stressed, quite soon it can spread to others, almost like it becomes contagious. We’ve found that the same is also true, if leaders are thriving, that also becomes contagious!

In this video Mark introduces you to two leaders who we believe are excellent role models when it comes to wellbeing.  They both think about the wellbeing of their people, they care about them and they do things to help them..

In this video you’ll discover what these leaders do for:

  • themselves,
  • 1 to 1 with individuals
  • with their teams
  • and culturally across their organisation..

…to lead wellbeing well!

We’d love to learn what you found most useful, please share your comments below.

We look forward to seeing you next month and in the meantime..

Continue to stay safe, be well and thrive!

    Another qreat video Mark. It’s so true that the how leaders show up has a huge impact on their teams and organisations! I’m going to try to be more mindful of this in my own life!

    The part about vulnerability in leadership really stood out to me… Anytime a direct superior opened up to me about their own issues, it made me work even harder for them. It also provided a permission space for me to share any challenges I was having. Thanks for sharing Mark!

      We respect our leaders for their capability but we connect with them because of their vulnerability.

    Great film Mark, thank you for sharing. It’s so easy to say “make time for you” or “focus on your wellbeing” to others but walking our talk and doing the things we know help our own wellbeing is vital, it also demonstrates that it’s not just words… we believe in it.

    Great video with Tony and Nicole two inspiring individuals, brilliant to hear what they have been doing and loved the ‘be kind to yourself’ comment. As a team we have been very open and honest which has been very supportive and brought us even closer. We all look out for and check in with individuals. Personally I have continued my exercise regime and also go for a walk first thing every morning, no matter the weather, this has really helped me and is my time. Making time for ourselves is as important as being there and making time for others. Thank you

      Paula, great to hear that you’re looking after yourself and are being so open and honest with your team.

    Great video, with the current state of the world, it has never been more important to have the ability to attend to our own well being, which will in turn help others and that can certainly filter through a work place.

    Another great video – and more great advice particularly around getting air! Seems more difficult during winter but one thing I have introduced are walking 121s during the day…no reason why you can’t walk and talk – great way to get some air (and sun…potentially!!)

    Fabulous video Mark – its so true that as a Leader I know that when I am in my optimum thrive state I can support my team better but also ensure I look after me too!

    During this unique time I have encouraged, and had, walking meetings with my team and always feel so much better afterwards.

      So true Becky, when you’re thriving as a leader it make is so much easier to help your team thrive too.

    Very insightful video Mark. Like Tony, I have also found that taking a walk or quick break outside in the fresh air, can make all the difference.

    I found it very inspiring to learn how Tony had overcome personal difficulties, by implementing a healthier environment and self wellbeing, not only benefiting himself but the people around him also.

    Great video Mark, informative and interesting. I will try to implement some wellbeing initiatives into my own (very small) organisation!
