Leading Wellbeing:
Equipping leaders with tools to drive wellbeing cultures

Recent study of over 2,000 leaders across four different countries found that C-suite and senior leaders significantly underestimated how much employees are struggling with their well-being. The cost of navigating relentless uncertainty and the rising cost of living is having an impact.

This session is aimed to work towards reducing this gap and changing the way that we lead wellbeing in our workplace.

Within this session Ali will unpack:

  • How do we create teams and cultures where physical and mental wellbeing are core?
  • Mapping out rhythms and rituals amongst the busyness
  • High performance and wellness
  • Recovery practices for the corporate athlete
