Four Practices to Amplify Thriving for Your Team and Community

| Leading Wellbeing, Wellbeing for the Planet, Wellbeing for You, Wellbeing for Your Organization, Wellbeing Leader | No Comments

Effective leaders, like you, are inspired by a strategic question: How can we produce results in ways that elevate the capacity of employees, consumers, partners, and communities to evolve and thrive? That’s a tall order! And it’s at the heart of a people-centered leadership strategy we call THRIVING AMPLIFIED. Amplifying Thriving Begins With A Belief: We Are Inextricably Connected Nothing happens by or through one person alone. As leaders, we must learn how to lead with a deep understanding that mindsets, emotions, and actions are contagious; they touch lives well beyond our inner circle. For thousands of years, many worldviews have instructed us on the profound truth: Everything is connected. In the Be Well Lead Well Pulse® leadership assessment, THRIVING AMPLIFIED is about bringing forth more of your leadership potential to empower thriving within others. This is evaluated using three psychometric scales: Energizing Others—the extent to which people are invigorated and energized through interacting with you. Maximizing Others—the extent to which people gain clarity, effectiveness, meaningful impact, and growth through interacting with you. Cultivating Care in Others—the extent to which people are more apt to express prosocial behaviors (i.e., gratitude, kindness, and collaboration) through interacting with you. We find that…

Below is an excerpt from September’s Theme: ACCOMPLISH   September 2022 | ACCOMPLISH The Wellness Moonshot: A World Free of Preventable Disease initiative is a gigantic undertaking. So, I decided to get a new perspective about it from someone who is accustomed to accomplishing big feats—and I found the perfect person in Dartanyon Crockett. Dartanyon is a competitive Judo athlete. He was born with Leber’s disease, a genetic condition causing vision loss, and as a child, he endured a life of extreme poverty along with the substance abuse by members of his family. Early on, wrestling and blind judo became mental and physical outlets for him, as…

Finding Greater Wisdom Through Wellbeing

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

Leaders are just now starting to embrace the pivotal role wellbeing can play in helping people navigate life and work more wisely. When we prioritize individual and collective wellbeing, we are naturally developing people to solve problems with purpose-driven, creative, both/and thinking, plus use their personal, interpersonal, and existential challenges to grow new degrees of discernment and resourcefulness. Well before we are pushed beyond our limits, it is an act of wisdom to prioritize and amplify wellbeing. Leading Wisely Builds on our Innate Capacity to Thrive From Aristotle’s perspective, a fruitful and thriving life (what the Greeks called eudaimonia) is marked by making wisdom practical. This involves developing psychological maturity as a leader and turning that maturity into the mindsets and behaviors that extend beyond the welfare of your organization to the communities it touches and the larger natural and social world. That’s why wisdom is part of our science-based assessment and framework of thriving, Be Well Lead Well Pulse®. As one of the six essential shifts for effective wellbeing leadership, the WISDOM dimension is about tapping into a worthwhile purpose, higher vision, and innate genius for guiding yourself and others toward inspired impact. It is measured using three psychometric…

How do you put it into action? 

When you coach, mentor, parent, or do any endeavor with others, act from this powerful belief: Human beings aren’t problems to be fixed. Everyone (no exceptions) holds vast potential for growth, effectiveness, ingenuity, and wellbeing. How does this assumption transform how you live and lead? It can be humbling and freeing to realize that every person has a depth of experiences, potential, and wisdom you know nothing about.

*an inspiring vision, purpose, and values to guide their decisions;
*greater resilience during stressful times;
*the use of proactive FUEL behaviors, such as eating, moving, resting, and breathing, to constructively manage their energy and stress; 
*and a deep motivation to energize and maximize the talents of people and teams.
