Individual Health and Balance: Foundational Module 3 of the Genuine Contact Program

For Executives, Facilitators, Consultants, Managers, Team Leaders, HR, OD specialists, and anyone engaged in leadership

Gaining, maintaining, and realigning your health and balance is a key to developing your leadership capacity. There are many demands placed on that capacity and the return on investment in yourself makes good business sense. For those engaged in leadership, personally or professionally, learning how to achieve and maintain individual health and balance has become increasingly important in these rapidly changing times. Everyone in the organization including those in leadership feels the added pressures of a performance environment that is in constant change. As leaders, you can reduce the effects of this added pressure by applying what you learn in this workshop. Your well-being is a key leadership capacity for organizational well-being.

If you’re like most of the people we work with, you are engaged in leadership, both professionally and in your private life. Because of the demands and stresses of leadership, you need to take extra care of your well-being. You need to have the capacity to operate at peak performance for the marathon that leadership is, over the long haul and not just for the short sprint.

You will

  • discover simple and effective concepts, tools and techniques to achieve individual health and balance
  • experience simple-to-use techniques to support mental, emotional, physical and spiritual health and balance
  • be able to use what you learn to realign yourself with health and balance when you notice yourself slipping being bumped out of health and balance mentally, emotionally, spiritually, and physically.

  • A practical framework to review your current state of health and balance from your perspective
  • Skills, knowledge, tools, and techniques to rebalance yourself mentally, emotionally, physically, and spiritually when you find yourself out of balance in any or even all of these dimensions
  • Skills, knowledge, tools, and techniques to live more authentically resulting in being increasingly able to lead with integrity from your genuine self
  • An understanding of how to work with the power of a personal operating matrix in relation to desired behaviors, actions, and results
