THE PATH TO VISIONARY LEADERSHIP: THE MISSING LINK OF WELLNESS

We focus on the most essential elements of nutrition, physical fitness and training of the mind so that participants can begin making high impact shifts that lead to visionary leadership.
- Vital Leaders who lead by example and force of will.
- Empathetic Leaders who are able to facilitate the growth and contributions of other individuals on their teams.

EMERGING LEADERS: BURN BRIGHT WITHOUT BURNING OUT
Your rising stars are one of your organization’s best assets. But how do you ensure that they burn bright without burning out? This talk relates what Jamie and her team have learned about cultivating wellness for emerging leaders based on research and experience coaching leaders at Fortune 1000 companies. Participants will learn practices to help them burn bright and go the distance.
PERFORMANCE FOR LEADERS: HOW TO MAKE FOOD WORK FOR YOU
Eating well can make a significant difference in energy, mental clarity, focus, emotional resilience and stamina, not to mention overall health. But what kind of food best supports leaders?
This talk addresses these questions and focuses on how to use nutrition to fuel performance. It shares evidence-based strategies on nutrition and dispels common myths and misinformation about nutrition. Participants walk away knowing how to eat for better leadership and receive materials including recipes and shopping lists to help them do so.
STRESS MANAGEMENT FOR WOMEN LEADERS: YOU CAN’T JUST LEAN IN
Despite great strides in gender equality in the US, only 17% of our senior leaders are women. Those who do make it into leadership positions report higher degrees of stress than their male counterparts. This is a problem not just for the women leaders themselves, but for the organization as a whole.
This talk introduces women leaders to stress management practices suited specifically for them. It addresses ways to incorporate exercise, rest and recovery in a busy schedule, nutrition to build energy and a variety of relaxation techniques. Participants will walk away with clear ideas of how to manage their stress effectively so that they have more energy to lead and live fulfilling lives.
WHY ARE WELLNESS PROGRAMS FAILING?
Many organizations are instituting Wellness programs in an effort to reduce healthcare costs, but few of these efforts are delivering results. Participation rates are generally low, costs keep rising and employees continue to lose productivity for health-related reasons.
This talk examines a variety of approaches to Corporate Wellness and offers some best practices learned from initiatives at Fortune 1000 companies. It addresses the following questions:
- Which wellness initiative gets better results: distributing Fitbits, subsidizing gym memberships or offering Lunch and Learns?
- What is the single most important thing that leaders can do to improve participation in wellness programs?
- What things do companies do that actually reduce participation in their wellness programs?
- What critical elements of wellness are typically missing from corporate programs?
- What easy, small steps can every company take to improve wellness?
