Before becoming a professional coach, I spent two decades in corporate communications leadership roles. While I loved the work, it also gave me valuable insight into the downsides of our career-focused culture. I experienced first-hand the negative effects that a lack of balance and connection with ourselves can have on our health, wellbeing and overall fulfilment.
Then I learned a tough lesson.
Finding true, lasting fulfillment is highly unlikely for most of us, if we focus solely on our careers. There are multiple facets to a happy and healthy life. The first step is to accept that our health, relationships and connection to ourselves all play vital roles to our overall well-being.
