Why It Matters

Recent studies by the Harvard School of Public Health and the NIH emphasize the need for a comprehensive approach to wellbeing that encompasses both physical and mental health, as well as the wholeness of person.

Building on this research, six key pillars of wellbeing have been identified. We’ve introduced a seventh: Ecological Wellbeing.



What sensations am I feeling? Are my body’s needs being met in a way that supports my optimum function & flow?


What level of mental activity is right for me now? How is my ability to focus? Am I growing and meeting goals?


Am I aware of the emotions that I’m experiencing as they unfold? Do I have support in expressing my feelings?


Am I nurturing high-quality connections with others? Do I set healthy boundaries when engaging interpersonally?


(also called Spiritual Wellbeing) What gives me purpose in life? Are my actions aligned with my purpose?


What are my relationships like with the world? How am I contributing to the living systems I’m part of?


How is my financial situation linked to my well-being? Do I use resources in alignment with my values?


“I can’t imagine anyone not feeling more connected to themselves, more passionate about what their work is and more ready to go.”

Leadership is not about titles, positions or work hours. It’s about relationships.
