Healthy People Make Healthy Leaders

The pace and magnitude of change over the past few years are without precedence. The convergence of global health, social, and political dynamics has forced businesses and organizations to be vigilant and pivot quickly under volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous conditions.

As leaders experience the impact of constant vigilance and the relentless pressure of leading others through rapid and frequent changes, they may become physically exhausted and lose mental clarity and emotional balance. If ignored, this toxic cocktail can lead to burnout. The Mayo Clinic defines burnout as — a state of physical or emotional exhaustion that also involves a sense of reduced accomplishment and loss of personal identity.

Research has linked leaders’ wellness and resulting behaviors (in the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual domains) to the wellness and engagement of the people they lead. Leaders who live well and lead well show up at their best - energized, inspired, passionate, and with their actions aligned with their positive intentions. In turn, they energize, inspire, and spark passion in others, cultivating a culture of engagement and wellness.

PPI’s Leadership Executive Wellness Retreat is a “Whole-Person” approach that invites leaders to explore their current state of well-being and its impact on their leadership effectiveness. We guide leaders through a process for refocusing and re-aligning their intentions and attention and their leadership thinking and behaviors with how they want to show up for themselves and others and develop sustainable practices that will transform them and their teams.

Join us in this tranquil and serene environment by consciously stepping away from the busyness, stress, and noise in your work and personal life to reflect, think, and learn strategies for removing barriers to your personal wellness and leadership effectiveness.

After this experience, leaders should be able to


Gain clarity about what’s important and prioritize them over low-impact activities.



 Create a healthy work environment for yourself and your team



Foster innovation while setting boundaries that support individual and collective psychological safety and well-being.


Reinvigorate yourself and support others in doing the same.


Re-engage (situations, relationships, assignments, etc.) in a different way with a newly discovered perspective.
