I had completely forgotten how busy one gets undertaking operational work. I have been doing some interim work combined with a transformational piece and have not stood still to blog. Not that I have not been learning and reflecting all the way though, that always goes on…
It has reminded me so much of how balancing wellbeing at work is such a fine line. Whilst I have been busy advising others, giving workshops and providing educational pieces for marketing, I have put myself on the back burner. Passionate as I am, I have to check myself that I am taking a breather too.
I have a renewed admiration for those in operational roles and believe that anyone in that position is best placed as a role model to colleagues. Building-in wellbeing “moments” into the day and encouraging this in others creates a culture change to occur. Consistent messaging about what is expected in terms of these positive, healthy behaviours can really influence for good. If you can evidence the change then even better when influencing others.
So a lesson learned here is to stop, take stock and reflect as a regular healthy habit, for your own benefit and in influencing positive, healthy change in others.
