What are healthy leaders?
Are you are leader in the workforce? A senior executive or even a CEO?
If the answer is yes then you will know that employees look to you for guidance, motivation and inspiration on a daily basis. You have reached the top of your field because of a number of factors. It may have come through hard work and many years of “hustle” or it may have been about timing and being in the right place at the right time.
However you achieved success you will know that it is a constant journey to stay number one and keep getting results for the staff and employees around you. So what are healthy leaders?
Did you realise that a lot of what you possess as a successful leader can be transferred to your weight loss and health? Think about that for a minute! Below are 3 attributes you possess as a successful leader and how you can add it to your health and wellness journey.
Healthy leaders lead by example
As a senior executive or CEO your staff want to see you work harder, longer and smarter, than everyone else. This should also be consistent with your weight. Employees want to see their leader as someone who looks healthy, looks strong and acts driven. By focusing on your exercise and consistently sticking to a programme the fitness results will show and the respect of a healthy leader that your team will give you will be obvious. Nobody looks up to a leader that looks dishevelled or doesn’t look the part he or she is acting. People respect all levels of hard work (including fitness!)
Healthy leaders are accountable
You hold people in the workforce accountable all day. When you delegate as a leader you expect a certain level of service to get the job done correctly. Being accountable for your health is one of the single biggest gifts you can give yourself and the people who care about you. By lacking the accountability health standards will drop and results will, at best fluctuate from good to average. A top tip is if you struggle with accountability then take on a coach to help you stay focused and make sure that you are consistently prioritizing your own health. I’m sure you are used to reporting to a board with numbers. By reporting to a coach regularly that will help with the end goal.
Healthy leaders keep their eye on the objective
There needs to be a deeper sense of what’s important than just making money as the boss. Are you building a legacy? Do you want to give back to those around you? This same question is just as important for your health. I suspect the answer when you dive deeper into the question will become laser clear. Do you want to stop feeling breathless when playing with your grandkids? Is your retirement going to be something you can enjoy and not have health implications? These are real questions that need to be answered not just I need to tick off a session because that’s what others around me do.
Use these 3 top tips to drive success not only in your career but in your health and wellness!

When working in our own niches, we tend to develop and share our accomplishments within a concentrated grouping of individuals.
We may start to take for granted that everyone will automatically know what we do, the talents we have and the services we offer.
But the fact of the matter is, there is so much noise out there, it's our job to set ourselves apart from and above the cacophony.
The results of doing so can be HUGE!
Whether you are looking for a new job, to create a new product, build distribution networks, make sales or build a new team.
The power to do so is literally at your fingertips!
But you need to put forth the effort to make it work for you and attract the types of people who are looking for EXACTLY what you have to offer (LOVE it when that happens!).
Making small modifications over time can have a major impact!
Here are three action items you can implement today in order to start changing the trajectory of your profile from one that gets lost in the shuffle to one that stands apart from the crowd.
Create a header that matches your web page branding. This guy (Adin) does great work, is very professional and super affordable. Add your contact info right there.
You can set up an exclusive, for LinkedIn only, email address if you like and use a service like Google Voice to assign you a number that can be differentiated from, but directed to your cell phone. Whatever method you choose, the bottom line is to make it easy for people to reach out to you.
Create projects that require a call to action. Do you have a web page where you make an offer or collect email addresses?
If not, you should. These are ongoing projects, are they not?
Create evergreen (always appropriate) offers (reviewing every 3-6 months to modify or update) in the Projects section of your LinkedIn profile in order to help educate people as to what you do and give them an opportunity to reach out or be kept apprised as to what you have going on. Encourage them to connect with you via other social media platforms you are active on as well.
Take time to order your skills and endorsements in ways that best reflect where you are right now and which direction you are going.
For example, I was getting endorsed in areas that are not my current focus and then missing out on my major area of impact.
A quick change to the order of your skills and endorsements can put your main strengths in front of your connections as something to endorse you for.
And you get bonus points for...
LinkedIn is FAR more than a place to store your resume. It is a vast and powerful database with which to differentiate yourself from the crowd!
