When leaders embrace wellbeing as a core value and integrate that value throughout their workplace culture, individuals and businesses thrive.
Each of us deserves the opportunity to work in environments that support rather than create a barrier to our wellbeing. Today's leader plays a critical role in cultivating these enviroments by modeling wellbeing and by developing the strategies, policies, and mindset to create workplaces where people feel valued, engaged, and productive. Workplaces that are compassionate and wellness-centered.

My personal leadership and wellness journey...
Many of us have a complex relationship with health and wellbeing. My own health and wellness path has been marked with personal health challenges, as well as rewarding wellbeing triumphs. These experiences have helped me to build personal resilience and a deep appreciation prioritizing wellbeing. Learning to integrate my wellbeing priorities with my leadership responsibilities didn't always come naturally for me. For many years I drew what I thought was an important professional line between my personal wellbeing priorities and my leadership role. Overtime, I came to understand the relationship between organizational culture and resilience and my capacity to lead with a wellbeing ethos.
Today, evidence-based research, accelerated by a burned out workforce, is bringing to new, urgent light to what now seems obvious: businesses can thrive sustainably only when the people driving them have the opportunity to nurture their own wellbeing. Our work environments, policies, and cultures must support rather than hinder individual wellness. Workplace wellbeing has become a leadership imperative.
As I continue to study our evolving workplaces and to make discoveries in my own wellness practices, I am optimistic about the evolution of wellbeing as a core societal value within and outside of our work cultures. As a leadership and wellness coach and consultant, and as a curious, life-long learner, I enjoy the challenge of collaborating with leaders on real-world workplace challenges to develop human-centered solutions. I welcome honest, whole-person conversations with today's leaders about how we can live our lives, lead our businesses and build our communities with life-affirming energy and welbeing.
The Energy Advantage was created to offer a valuable resource to leaders by helping them integrate personal wellness and leadership impact and between workplace wellbeing and business success. I am thrilled to be spending this chapter of my life inspiring sustainable, positive change that results in more fulfilled lives, healthier businesses, and thriving communities.
