The Wellness/Leadership Link
When we’re well, it often feels like the world’s our oyster. We think more clearly, we’re more productive and effective in our roles at work and we create connections with others that feel genuine and authentic. Bringing your whole self to work means you’re leading with optimism and confidence. Brian Andjelic, director of Leadership Learning in Wellness at the College of Alberta School Superintendents, wrote a wonderful blog on the impact we can all make when it comes to leading the wellness way. Whether you’re in a traditional leadership role or leading from the front lines, you can model wellness and mental well-being throughout your day. It creates a positive impact on your colleagues and everyone around you too. Read on to learn how to lead the wellness way.
