Wisdom Works Group is conducting the first ever study of wellbeing leadership across the global wellness economy.

Recent data shows that globally leaders are struggling, both with their wellbeing and being an example of leading wellbeing in their teams and organizations. A Deloitte report indicates 76% of C-Suite leaders say the pandemic has negatively affected their wellbeing and that only 56% of employees said their company’s executives care about their wellbeing. Gallup research concurs: Employees who are engaged at work but not thriving in their lives have a higher likelihood of burnout, daily stress and worry, and double the rate of daily sadness and anger as employees who are thriving.

Yet, the most impactful wellbeing efforts don’t begin with the employee. Creating work environments where people can flourish and bring their best requires leaders who lead and live wellbeing.

Our study questions: As leaders across the global wellness economy, are we thriving? Are we advancing wellbeing through how we lead?

We think it’s time to find out.

How is data being collected and reported?

To collect data on the wellbeing of leaders globally, Wisdom Works Group invites leaders within the $4.4 trillion global wellness economy and adjacent industries to complete a science-based wellbeing leadership assessment developed with support from social scientists at the University of Colorado in Colorado Springs.

The global wellness economy is defined by the Global Wellness Institute as those industries that enable consumers to incorporate wellness activities and lifestyles into their daily lives. Leaders participating in this study will be asked to self-identify their industry from the following: Healthy Eating, Nutrition, & Weight Loss; Mental Wellness; Personal Care & Beauty; Physical Activity; Public Health, Prevention & Personalized Medicine; Spas; Thermal/Mineral Springs; Traditional & Complementary Medicine; Wellness Real Estate; Wellness Tourism; and Workplace Wellness. Because adjacent industries are showing serious interest in global wellness, participants may also choose to self-identify in: Healthcare; Pharmaceuticals; and Human Potential & Development.

Responses are being gathered through December 16, 2022. The data will be anonymously aggregated and analyzed into a report for publication in the first quarter of 2023.

What are the benefits for leaders?

By taking part in this study, leaders will contribute to the collective wisdom about wellbeing leadership across of the global wellness economy and adjacent industries and gain first access to the results in a detailed report to be released in the first quarter of 2023.

Participating leaders will also receive a one-page report with their personal THRIVING score within a comparative database of leaders worldwide, along with suggested actions to enhance their capacity to thrive.
