Win-Win Benefits of Employee Well-being for Organizations and Employees
When employees report high levels of well-being and life-satisfaction, research shows (see below note), there are many benefits to those employees and to their organizations. Well duh (right?). But have you ever considered just what those benefits for both the individuals and organization might be?
Do Leaders Expect Too Much
Is it OK for leaders and business owners to expect their employees to work so hard that they jeopardize their personal relationships, their physical or psychological well-being?
Not The New Year Start I Planned – How About You
In your personal or business life, it’s all too easy to just mindlessly step into the seemingly gentle but surging stream of accepting we are allowing ourselves and our children to lose contact with the easy-to-access, life-enhancing experiences that cause us to be humankind … kind humans … kindred humans.
Jacinda Ardern’s Aristotlean Lesson
The lesson here for you, me and all of us is this: Striving to live a ‘good’ life, and striving to be at our personal best, isn’t easy to do, but it’s our moral duty to give it real crack.

However, if you’re chasing success while sucked into playing the social comparison game, you’re more than likely in a success trap … chasing success for all the wrong reasons. The result of being caught in the success trap and playing the social comparison game is you often feel like a failure.
And You Think You Don’t Have A Trust Problem
Where 84% of executives believed their employees had high trust with their companies, only 64% of employees agreed that they trusted their employers. The problem here is many leaders are failing to view the importance of trust, because they don’t believe there is a trust problem … and yet the evidence clearly shows there is.
What Really Matters
Rather than wait for a significant event to shake you out of taking life for granted, now is a great time to shake it up by pausing, reflecting, and acting on what really matters in life.
