Well Being Leads to Well Doing

| Leading Wellbeing, Thoughts, Wellbeing Leader | No Comments

In coaching and advising leaders from all walks of life, I meet a lot of hard-working, responsible leaders of all ages who are successful by all outward appearances. In truth, however, many of them are exhausted, burning out in every direction. Their relationships with significant others are strained. They’ve lost connection with children, neighbors, family members, and friends. They lack interests or hobbies outside of work. They no longer seem to really know themselves. They’ve often been in a rhythm of living and working so fast for so long that they’ve forgotten why. A frenetic pace has become their norm, and the sense of purpose that used to help them rise above the fray has withered. One of these leaders told me, “I feel spiritually dry.” That said it all. These leaders usually have access to many external resources—material, financial, knowledge, and otherwise—for achieving results. Yet, when it comes to their sense of being resourced internally, they’re depleted. ARE YOU FEELING THE BIG SQUEEZE? Over the course of my life, I’ve been one of these leaders. I have been identified so deeply by my job that I’ve let it override decisions about my wellbeing. A major personal crisis in my…

Step into Your Leadership Story of Thriving

Most leaders I know want to be on the side of leading thriving for themselves and others. Yet, doing so means challenging old ideas they hold about what it means to lead and rewriting their leadership story so that wellbeing is a priority. WHAT STORY DO YOU WANT TO STEP INTO? Leading a thriving work culture isn’t only about what you say and do, although the people you work with are watching both. It’s about your perceptions of who you are—the deeper stories defining, sustaining, and propelling how you live and lead. Like everyone, your story of leadership, what some call your leadership origin story, is shaped by your experiences, upbringing, cultural worldviews, primal beliefs, biases, and other internal and social factors. This story likely evolved unconsciously over time, without you giving much attention to it. As British author James Allen once said, “You are today where your thoughts have brought you; you will be tomorrow where your thoughts take you.” Fortunately, you possess a uniquely human capacity: The ability to become aware of how and what you think. To consciously unearth the narratives driving you and write healthier stories to guide your future. This is a superpower!  And through…
