“Promoting a Holistic Approach to Your Health – connecting physical, mental and emotional wellbeing”
What is a healthy balance between mental and physical health? Can one exist without the other and what is the balance that leads to wellbeing? We know that emotions affect health, but how does they body respond to the way people think, feel and act?
In this presentation we will:
         · Identify how people with good emotional health are aware of their thoughts feelings and behaviors.
         · Predict the emotional, social, intellectual and spiritual barriers to healthy behaviors and evaluate ways to overcome those obstacles for supported behavior change.
        · Guidance on how to integrate, design and implement programs that balance the unique and powerful connection between mental, emotional and physical well-being.

"Heart Led Leadership"
In this fast-paced world, managers have to balance high productivity expectations with supportive staff coaching and mentorship. High-pressured deadlines and work overload lead to increasing stress. Heart-led leadership is based on leading from the heart, with a sense of patience, compassion, kindness, and positive energy. An individual who takes care of his or her own emotional, mental and physical needs is more aligned and less reactive to others. This presentation provides basic skills and techniques to support an individual’s journey toward leading with the heart.

Presentation objectives:
*Explore the latest research on the Heart (HeartMath® Institute)
*Explore the meaning of Heart Led/Centered Leadership
*Expand your tool kit for ideas of how to implement this practice
*Evolve in your personal leadership style with a focus on trust, passion, kindness, authenticity, connection & presence
