Sustainable wellbeing for you, your team and your organisation: Using a powerful framework to identify what is going well and the opportunities for positive change

Organisations expect leaders to have well-developed skills in people leadership, emotional intelligence, stakeholder relationships, strategic thinking, problem solving and more.  In this day and age, shouldn’t we also expect leaders to be capable at developing wellbeing – for themselves, for the people they lead, and as champions of wellbeing across the organisation?

But how do you achieve this?  Seasoned executive coaches Andrea Corcoran and Heather Linaker - who lead Stephenson Mansell Group’s business in Queensland – had been hearing this need more and more and were looking for a robust, credible and pragmatic way to tackle it.

They found it in the Global Leadership Wellbeing Survey and the framework that underpins it.  It is powerful yet non-judgmental, and allows leaders to zero in on the aspects of well-being that are going well for an them, and their opportunities for positive change.

In this session, Andrea and Heather will introduce us to the 11 elements of the framework, and we shall hear from three legal leaders who have been profiled with it, and their ideas of how it could be used to address the challenging issues of how to work healthily and sustainably in the demanding environment that is the legal profession.

Presented by:
