The HAPPY HEALTHY LEADER (HHL) PROGRAM is built on practical strategies based on scientific evidence which aims to provide short- and long-term sustainable change. In this program you are going to be taken through the 7 step HHL framework that will transition you to being a happy, healthy leader.
Step 1 – Where are you now?
In step 1, we will explore where you are now in relation to where you would like to be. We will look at what factors are currently getting in the way of you being a Happy Healthy Leader, but also what supports and resources you do have that will help you
Step 2 – When your mind overheats
In step 2, we will do a deeper dive into what you do that sets you off course and towards unhealthy and unhappy leadership. This can involve external factors such as other people, market forces, pandemics, even the weather itself (global warming, floods, bushfires, etc.). I will also help you understand your internal compass – that is, mindset, stress and negative self-talk – so that you can begin to develop a new way of navigating these when they show up (because the reality is, they will).
Step 3 – What’s your destination?
In step 3, you will learn how point the compass towards what is important to you by clarifying your values and goals. We will also identify some more immediate goals for you to get some value and quick wins as we work towards your longer term goals.
Step 4 – A map to guide a healthy mind
In step 4, you will be introduced to the first of two key tools that are going to set you on your course to being a happy, healthy leader. This particular tool, the Matrix, is based on psychological science and has been a game changer for many leaders by helping leaders get team members back on the boat and making it clear who is not on board. This tool will also help you set healthy work boundaries.
Step 5 – Your lifeboat: Mindfulness
In step 5, you will be introduced to your second tool, which is going to be your lifeboat for when ‘bad weather’ arrives, such as unexpected change, bad performance and negative feedback. It will also be your kryptonite for negative self-talk. Mindfulness is not just another Eastern fad, and there is way more to it than just sitting in quiet reflection. Your team is going to love this one, too.
Step 6 – Being a happy, healthy leader
In step 6, you will be set up for success by developing your 10-year happy, healthy leader plan, which includes your key values and goals. You will also see how easy it is to apply your two new tools in the short and long term. My clients love this practical step.
Step 7 – Bon voyage!
In your final step, before you set sail as a HHL, you will be prepared for any bad weather ahead that may set you off course from your 10-year plan. You will finish the program harnessed with immediate steps you can do right now, which will set you off on your journey towards being a happy, healthy leader.
