Achieving balance through a humanistic/holistic approach to leadership.

The tougher the challenge facing your organization, the more you should actively promote a culture that is concerned with the well-being of your team.

People shut down when they are faced with greater demands and their time, energy and dedication are taken for granted.

How does the organization’s vision, mission and values reflect its interest in the well-being of the team who make the work possible?

Showing team members that you care about their well-being outside of the organization and embracing your ability to contribute to their wellbeing will show your team that you do not take them for granted.

Your approach does not have to cost much money. In fact, it may be free. However, it does require that you be creative and flexible.

When you invest and promote the well-being of your team, they are more likely to stay, more likely to work harder and more likely to care about their work. Help your team help you. Think about their well-being–mind, body and soul. As a leader, you are first and foremost in the business of people. Nothing will be accomplished if they are not at your side.
