How did you come to find out about Healthy Leaders and what were you aiming to accomplish when enrolling on the programme?
I attended a seminar. I recognised that having gone through a particular difficult time in my life both personally and within my work environment, I was not functioning to the best of my ability which was affecting my decisions to the detriment of both home and work life. Through Philips presentation I felt that he could assist me in regaining confidence in myself and focus on the business in a more professional manner.
Have your goals and priorities shifted during the process?
My goals and priorities have definitely shifted. I am now truly working on the Business rather than getting over involved in the Business.
What has been the most surprising outcome during your time working towards being a Healthy Leader?
My ability to achieve in areas I have previously shied away from
Can you pinpoint what the biggest change has been in either your physical or mental health?
I now have the ability to allow myself to be proud of myself and what I have achieved so far, I am generally healthier and look after myself better. I now deal with difficult situations without getting stressed out about it.
How has this impacted on those around you? at work or home.
I remember many years ago my mum saying “look after yourself first and your children will be fine. If you are not ok then they sense it and are not ok either” the reaction from my family has been great, they can see that I am now back in control of life in general and my employees are more motivated, committed and generally happier in their work, which has lead to a more stable foundation in which we all are working hard to build on.
Philip has, through his chats, suggestions and setting me tasks to do between visits, contributed a great deal to my personal wellbeing, my professionalism and general focus. As a result the respect and admiration from those who know me is more paramount now than ever before.
Thank you Philip 🙂 I look forward to moving on and upwards with you.
