‘What I stand for, and what we stand for, is making sure that the healthy is in high performance. And we actually can have both. And we know that most people are struggling with this at the moment. We have record levels of reported burnout, we have record levels of chronic stress, we have not made a dent in our mental illness stats despite all the research and resources that have been thrown at it in the last few years. We still have one in five of us or 20% of us at any one time in any one year with a diagnosis of mental illness. And so, we are still not getting that balance right of how we prioritise ourselves without fear of under-performance.’ ~ Fleur Heazlewood

2. Psychological safety is key to healthy, high performance
3. Mental health conversation competence is critical to leader success.
Her definition of Self Love is from one of her yoga teachers which is:
Self-love is very much around your ability to love yourself exactly as you are, to accept the things you cannot change and to be patient with the things you do want to change.
Her favourite quote is from:
This Precious Human Body by Je Tsongkapa
The human body, at peace with itself,
Is more precious than the rarest gem.
Cherish your body.
It is yours this one time only.
The human form is won with difficulty,
It is easy to lose.
All worldly things are brief,
Like lightening in the sky;
This life you must know
As the tiny splash of a raindrop;
A thing of beauty that disappears
Even as it comes into being.
Your inspiration and aspiration
Resolve to make use of every day and night
To realise them.
I love the idea of ‘The Well Leader’.
I think about it by a values perspective and a human perspective.
What is the right thing to do by the people and the business.
If you treat people well, people will do well by you.
We have not made a dent in mental health diagnosis despite the research and resources thrown at it.
I care that wellbeing is a foundation for our lives and the way that we do things at work.
With increases in productivity there is also an increase in chronic stress , burnout, and mental illness.
Burnout is not an acceptable price for success.
The reality is most of our work does not require face to face time.
Culture is something that we choose.
It’s the values that we live, and the behaviours that we tolerate and the way that we treat people.
The best definition of wellbeing is yours as it is different for everyone.
Ultimately this work is life skills in all areas of life.
Work can be a source of wellbeing not a place of stress.
We can all act rather than react.
It is about optimising your energy.
Are you mind full or mindful?
It can be exhausting trying to juggle it all.
Create space for you to heal and refuel.
Create a place of centredness.
Self love and self care is the centre of our lives.
