Wellbeing in the Workplace
Transforming patterns of stress, finding balance, improving health, effectiveness and performance through transformational coaching and workshops
Wellbeing at work could be described as enjoying your time in the office or workplace, achieving your goals and seeing the value of your efforts whilst balancing your energy levels. Sound good? How often do you find yourself achieving this?
Many of us would like to think of ourselves as machines, well oiled and able to survive or achieve any challenges at work. We attempt to push ourselves and others through tight deadlines and stressful situations, sometimes at the expense of our mind and body. Instances of fatigue and increased anxiety, and common ailments such as migraines and flu are often our reward for stretching to achieve those essential goals. Absenteeism follows and productivity consequently takes a dive.
Wellbeing matters because we are human beings, even when we are at work!

- "Working crazy hours is part of the job!"
