A common mistake CEOs make is to persuade themselves they don’t need self-care or to think it’s a luxury they can’t afford, but neglecting health and wellness can lead to burnout. CEOs give a significant amount of time and dedication to their organizations, staff and board which often depletes their resiliency. Statistics show that employees who practice wellness and self-care have increased productivity, lower stress levels, and increased energy. This program will provide CEOs with practical approaches, techniques and tools to incorporate into their daily routines and provide information on how wellness programs can help energize staff and create a workplace culture that encourages self-care.

Topics to include:

  • Introduction to Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction
  • How to Alleviate Stress using Massage Therapy Balls
  • Nutrition and Healthy Living
  • Employee Wellness Program Ideas
  • Work-Life Balance
