The benefits and passion of Coaching NorthWest have been focused on Wellbeing – on exactly the problems the heading presents if ignored.

In the States, a very well known business lady is calling out for a Conference on Burn Out.

Read these stats and comments as quoted from her article in the Sunday Times: ” Success is measured on two things: money and power. But it’s time for a third metric, one founded on wellbeing, wisdom and our desire and ability to give back.”

“Women in stressful jobs have a nearly 40%increased risk of heart disease and a 60% increased risk of diabetes. ….we are used to men having heart attacks in their fifties, but it shouldn’t be happening to anyone.”

She wants “Less stress, more living.”  This is a highly respected and motivated business woman. She is declaring war on Lifestyle demanded of most employees to have a business “succeed”. “What is the price we are paying?” she asks. “behind the facade of of a successful life, the job, the kids, the husband – ….. what are we leaving unattended?”

She speaks of learning to meditate – simply because she thought she was too busy to learn, when that was when she needed it most. She speaks of not eating junk food because it messes up mind and body, of doing yoga, of finding ways of sleeping well, without chemical aid, of having sessions of speaking to remove mental stress.  – IE all that is addressed at with Anne at Coaching NorthWest!

Arainna Huffington says this in her speech to a Graduating Class at Massachusetts College – “traditionally expected to tell grads how to go out there and climb the ladder of success, but I want to ask you, instead, to redefine success. Because the world you are heading into desperately needs it.”

Amen to that. What do you think?
