As a business leader one of the biggest challenges you have in maintaining a high-energy, high-health regime has as much to do with managing your schedule as anything else.
Meetings, flights, dinners, briefings, taxis, hotels, presentations, reports and time to think through strategy decisions – it’s a massive logistical exercise to make all that happen smoothly, successfully and without a glitch. Now let’s factor in exercise, healthy food choices, supplementation and sleep, and you have a potential melt-down on your hands.
Training, sustaining and maintaining the very best teams of support professionals is a vital component in your success as a business leader. Just as you know yourself, maintaining high energy, clarity and mental acuity doesn’t just happen by accident, and requires constant attention to healthy rituals and habits to stay on the very top of your game.
For EA’s and PA’s, this applies doubly, for not only do they have to manage the diary of their hard-charging exec’s, maintaining a zero margin of error, they must also manage their own health, wellbeing and lifestyles as well. How do they do this?
To be honest, no-one can do it without acquiring specialist knowledge, understanding and practical direction in this field.
That’s why we now provide dedicated wellbeing programmes specifically for EA’s, PA’s and Support and Admin professionals. It’s a two-pronged approach: understanding and scheduling high-health strategies for their executive charges, whilst implementing wellbeing rituals into their own personal lifestyles.
This enables you to maintain a high operational capacity in the face of pressured timetables, and ensures you retain your best support talent, operating at a consistently higher level, for longer.
Executive Education might not just be for Executives after all…
PS: On 19 April I’ll be presenting a special keynote at the Asian Summit for Secretaries and Admin Professionals in Singapore http://www.sttstraining.com/ASSAP/index.html. In this session I’ll be sharing my top tips, tools and techniques for losing weight, boosting energy, preventing colds and flu’s, staying fit, sleeping better, stressing less and fighting off the effects of ageing!
This is all about self-care, and how the benefits at a personal level can impact effectiveness at a professional level.
It’s just one key session of a whole host of expert presentations, so if you have a valued member on your team who could benefit from 4 days of high-level, role-specific training and interaction, I’d really encourage you to consider sending them along.
