| Leading Wellbeing, News and Events, Thoughts, Wellbeing for the Planet, Wellbeing for You, Wellbeing for Your Organization, Wellbeing Leader | 2 Comments

For a beneficial change in your state of being, few tools are as powerful as the breath. That’s why Breathing as Fuel is one of 19 psychometrics we measure in the pioneering wellbeing leadership assessment, Be Well Lead Well Pulse®. As someone committed to developing healthier, more effective, and sustainable leadership in organizations and communities, you can learn how to help leaders positively cope with stress, manage their energy, and optimize their performance through intentional breath control. TRY IT FOR YOURSELF! Experiment with this simple 8-minute practice, Counting Your Breath, and notice the effects it has on your body, mind, and emotions.   LEADERS ARE NOTORIOUSLY LOW IN USING THE POWER OF THEIR BREATH As measured by Be Well Lead Well Pulse®, leaders worldwide score particularly low when asked about the extent to which they use their breath to make positive shifts in their state of being. Possible reasons why? They simply may not be aware that a focus on breathing could strengthen their leadership effectiveness. A breath practice isn’t part of their cultural conditioning at work or at home. Breathwork is often so simple that it can feel boring and easy to discount. It can be confronting to experience…

The Stress Factor: How Some Leaders Turn Stress into Thriving

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

Wisdom Works strengthens leaders, brands, and work cultures through the cultivation of wellbeing. In fact, using our holistic wellbeing leadership assessment system Be Well Lead Well Pulse® with 425+ leaders across multiple continents, we recently found that leaders reporting High wellbeing are 38% more likely to report engaging in paradoxical leadership behavior than leaders who score Low in wellbeing. This means thriving leaders are apt to abandon right/wrong or either/or thinking in favor of both/and approaches that utilize conflicting perspectives as an impetus for greater innovation, inclusiveness, learning, and growth. As outlined in our Be Well Lead Well® Research Insights report, Effectively Leading Through Paradox: A Pivotal Role for Wellbeing, wellbeing is a vital resource for every leader navigating complex and changing environments, at work and at home, where solutions are never clear or simple, but full of contradictory demands. Stress Plays a Fascinating Role We also found an intriguing role for stress with these leaders. For those leaders who scored Low in paradoxical leadership, wellbeing decreased as stress increased. On the other hand, those leaders scoring High in paradoxical leadership did not experience this adverse relationship. They reported greater overall wellbeing with increasing levels of stress. By adopting a…

LEARN to be a Wellbeing Leader

| Leading Wellbeing, Wellbeing for You, Wellbeing for Your Organization, Wellbeing Leader, Wellness Moonshot | No Comments

We humans have a superpower at our disposal: Our magnificent ability to learn. In the simplest terms, learning means embodying a new capacity to think and act. Consider, for example, that you want to eat a plant-forward diet to enhance your physical health and the health of the planet, like a third of the world’s population currently does. A good start may be to understand that consuming less meat decreases the risk of heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, as well as other lifestyle diseases and climate impacts. However, knowledge alone won’t get you to your wellness goals. You’ll have to change your behavior from what it is today to what you want it to be. Learning can transform new behaviors into authentic wellness lifestyles and connections into supportive wellness communities. When it comes to wellbeing leadership, a great question to ask is: How can I help myself and others learn?  Some habits serve our wellbeing. Some habits erode it. Fortunately, you aren’t a fixed human being, reduced to your habits. You are a human becoming with a built-in capacity to learn. Your brain possesses neuroplasticity by design. It is adaptable and responsive to your inner and outer worlds with a structure and function that can evolve. The latest studies show…

When we truly give, we tap into humility, a deep knowing that our lives are full of privilege and abundance and we want to extend that to other people and the planet. ⠀
⠀
Every moment is an opportunity for giving. For most of the people you touch on a day-to-day basis, the best gifts aren’t money or things. They are the intangibles, such as being heard, respected, valued, and accepted. ⠀
