The PQ Advantage. Beyond IQ and EQ

One conversation that comes up regularly in my coaching work with clients is EQ. However, I believe it’s the little known and poorly understood PQ that really moves the needle on personal growth and performance in work and life.

Why Your Company Needs a Chief Wellbeing Officer

Hiring a Chief Wellbeing Officer is the first step towards fixing the corporate wellness disaster that companies are currently facing. With the steadily increasing levels of stress, burnout, turnover, and disengagement, executive teams are increasingly focussed on providing wellness amenities to employees. Unfortunately, traditional wellness strategies have not improved working conditions, stress levels, and the wellbeing of employees.

This is why the new executive level role of Chief Wellbeing Officer (CWO) is gaining popularity. This role sometimes called “Head of Wellbeing” is a signal by an organisation and its board to take the health, happiness, and engagement of employees seriously. It’s a decision to move beyond “checking boxes” to generating tangible, positive improvements in wellbeing, performance and ROI across the entire organisation.

Should you set a New Year's Resolution?

New Year’s Resolutions. To Set Them…or Not?

This time of year gets a bad rap for so many reasons. In fact, you are probably being bombarded from every angle with “resolution” messages. I’m sure your inner cynic is rolling its eyes! (Mine is).

As for resolutions. Some people set them every year, others don’t. I’m not a big fan. I believe it’s time to move past them. To do something different…and better.

At the base level, there’s no right or wrong way to transition from one year to the next. It’s more about what’s working for you, and what’s not.
