The importance of getting your Senior Managers healthy, energised & resilient
For over 10 years now we have been working with some truly great organisations, helping them to improve performance by coaching their employees to improve their health & energy.
More companies are now seeing the benefits to the performance of the business in of creating a healthy and energised workforce. Over the past 2 years we have seen a big shift in one particular area of work with our clients. Pre 2 years ago we only had around 20% of our clients whereby Directors & senior managers would be involved in the programmes we ran for our clients.
Now however, this has grown to around 70% of our clients and for the majority of these we run specific workshops for the Directors and senior managers.
So why has this shift happened, in a nutshell, historically Directors and senior managers would be the worst at looking after themselves and prioritising their health & energy, all to often they were so business focused, their health got neglected.
However over the past 2 years there is a growing number of senior managers that are feeling the pressure and recognise that with better health & energy they not only perform better but also are much more resilient to the pressures of leadership and management.
So for a HR Director what are the benefits in running health & energy programmes for your senior management:
- First and full most senior managers need help with their health & energy just like everyone else
- Senior managers with better health & energy perform better and given their responsibilities, this improved performance can have a big impact on the bottom line
- We get excellent feedback from senior managers that attend our workshops, this then engages them and makes it easier for HR to implement a big company wide programme
- As we all know the leadership in any business drives it’s culture, so if you can get the leaders taking their own health and energy seriously, this sends a big message out to everyone else i.e. Directors driving a healthy, energised culture v a burnt out stressed culture
Here are some of the most popular topics we cover when running programmes for senior managers:
Mind management & resilience
Mindfulness & meditation
Managing pressure & improving resilience
How to support your teams manage pressure
Nutrition & energy
Day to day energy management
Sleep & energy
Smart working & work life balance
Exercise & energy
Back care health
How do HR Directors & L&D Managers get this to happen:
When your senior managers meet (usually monthly) simple organise for a 1 hour session to be part of their day. This session can be tailored to your group to ensure maximum impact.
