executive health and performance
Today´s corporate environment requires senior executives to be leading “athletes”, capable of adapting to the ever-changing environment, in order to handle the increasing pressure as well as to cope with shifting economies and political uncertainty. Executive health seems to be one of the greatest leadership challenges of the 21st century, where isolation, the pain of downsizing and pace of work are stressors that senior executives are exposed to in contrast to others - having a direct impact on physiological and psychological well-being. As a result, organisations are implementing wellness programs to overcome these challenges but in return these schemes often become a part of the problem by invading private life and increasing the already high pressure to perform, which has led to burnout and senior executives feeling inadequate. Statistics show that over 60% of CEOs are at risk of heart failure, 80% are considered medically obese while 100% are suffering from psychosomatic stress diseases, which is why we are here - to fortify executive health.
