As Subnet are now heading into our second month of our Corporate Wellness initiative, I figured now was a good time to look at what we have achieved and what has failed in our journey so far.
I write this post in wrap up of a rewarding, challenging but overall a positive 2017, and in the mindset for a fantastic and uplifting 2018 about to dawn.
With my journey kicking off to improve the culture and wellness within our organisation in 2018, I have already picked up so much insight into my mindset, along with seeing how a simple change can positively effect the organisation in big ways.
For my third blog post about Subnet's journey into the world of Corporate Wellness, I want to focus on an area that has become more apparent during the last two very troubling weeks. Over the last two weeks I have not only been overseas and interstate for work which is always hard when trying to improve your mental mindset, but also dealt with an unexpected loss of a friend.
Being in leadership roles over many years with teams of ones and two's to teams of hundreds, the impact of a good manager or leader can be felt by the entire organisation. The question is how do you become 'that leader' or if you are 'that leader' how to you use that privilege to do good in your organisation.
Is it a sign of being a Baby Boomer / Gen X'r or a work ethic gone awry?
I have met many business owners or senior leaders over the years that have had the same issue with a personal drive that says 'doing your job right' equals working longer and harder than any of the other employees. I have found this drive also means feeling a sense of guilt of you actually do have a day off sick or take personal leave.
