Investment in individual health and balance is the most important investment a leader can make. | Birgitt Williams


The Individual Health & Balance workshop offers you the chance to build capacity to work with change as a leader and as an individual.

We are working and living in fast changing times and is it is inevitable that you will be deeply affected by the change processes in which you are involved, in both your organizational and personal life. 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 healthy in this environment.

We all know from experience how difficult it can be to maintain a state of heath and balance. We have tendencies to overextend and work long hours to make gains with our career goals and overlook taking care of what gives us inspiration like walking in the forest or learning how to dance. We put lots of energy in being the perfect parent and forget about being the best partner we can be not to mention taking care of our own needs.

In order to work effectively and live well with change it is important to have self-awareness to maintain to be able to access your own wisdom to guide you in your life decisions and in your work. You need 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 in business, in private life and in our very dynamic and world.
