New Research Shows Healthcare Leader Wellbeing Lacking

| Leading Wellbeing, News and Events, Wellbeing for You, Wellbeing for Your Organization, Wellbeing Leader | No Comments

While Leader Wellbeing Is a Linchpin to Employee Wellbeing, New Research Shows Healthcare Leaders are Struggling With their roles on the pandemic frontline for almost three years, many healthcare employees have undoubtedly experienced chronic stress. Among other things, this has shown up as a rise in mental and physical health challenges, relationships problems, anxiety about the future, absenteeism and presenteeism, and poorer decision making with potentially detrimental effects on patient care. Healthcare leaders are a linchpin to the wellbeing, stress levels, and effectiveness of healthcare employees. These leaders are charged with creating an environment in which employees can do their work well—and be well at the same time. This includes ensuring staff have autonomy to make appropriate decisions for their jobs, receive recognition for their contributions, and work in an ethical, fair, and inclusive environment. It also means equipping staff with the cognitive, emotional, and social training to cope with distress, plus use distress as a source of growth, resilience, and wellbeing. At Wisdom Works, we know the wellbeing of leaders also has a direct impact on employee wellbeing and performance. In our latest Be Well Lead Well® research we tracked 200+ healthcare leaders around the globe from April 2021-April…

Discover how these leaders achieved beneficial outcomes for their principals and school campuses in the Be Well Lead Well® case study, Improving Education by Developing Thriving Leaders: Lessons from The Principal Impact Collaborative. The Principal Impact Collaborative (PIC) provides learning and growth opportunities for leaders in North Texas public school districts through training in design thinking, adaptive leadership, wellbeing, and resilience, along with peer networking and collaboration. Believing that the school principal is, according to PIC’s Empowering School Leaders to Thrive report, “the most important linchpin to creating a dynamic equilibrium between student and adult needs in schools,” PIC has intentionally focused on increasing the ability of these leaders to thrive as a core part of their leadership development.

Cultures around the world have long known that eating well, getting plenty of physical activity throughout the day, enjoying high quality sleep, and breathing mindfully contribute to physiological and psychological vitality. Wise leaders have a personalized FUEL strategy that’s part of their daily routine, and they coach their teams to do the same. FUEL, one of the six key wellbeing dimensions measured in Be Well Lead Well Pulse®, is the proactive and strategic use of how you eat, move, rest, and breathe to thrive in your life and leadership. Learning to use FUEL purposefully is one of the six essential shifts you can make to amplify thriving in your team and organization, starting with yourself. Here are four innovative, zero-cost FUEL practices to test for yourself: 1. EATING FOR FUEL: Use your gut to regulate your emotions.
