The Individual Health & Balance workshop is a chance to build capacity to work with change as a leader and as an individual. It addresses emotional, mental, physical and spiritual health. The Medicine Wheel Tool© is used as a framework to explore your own state of health and balance and to look at improvements you wish to do. A focus in the workshop is on strengthening self empowerment and self love and learning how to manage personal energy and how to maintain a state of optimal health in stressful situations.

We are all working and living in fast changing times and if you support change in organizations it is inevitable that you will be deeply affected by the change processes in which you are involved. It is extremely important therefore that you are able to rely on a solid personal foundation for optimal personal health and balance if you want to function well and stay well in this environment. You need to have self-awareness to maintain a mentoring role so that the system can access its own wisdom. You need to to take time for self care, time to breathe and reflect. You need to develop routines that support you so that you can support others without becoming overwhelmed by all that is going on around you in the whirlwinds of change that confront you both in business and in our very dynamic and world.
