#5  Why executive well-being is the cornerstone of effective leadership with Group CEO of Life Healthcare Peter Wharton-Hood

In this episode of A Better Place of Business, we shine a spotlight on an important aspect of effective leadership: the well-being of top-level executives. As the conductors of organisational success, these leaders play a key role in shaping workplace culture and driving productivity and innovation. However, in the wake of the post-pandemic world, the significance of mental health has taken centre stage, challenging traditional norms and emphasising the critical need for executives to prioritise their well-being. From managing stress and fatigue to nourishing the body and mind, executive wellness isn't just a personal matter – it's the cornerstone that sustains the entire leadership structure, influencing the heartbeat of the organisation.

Join us as we delve deeper into this topic with our guests, Kassie Naidoo, Creative Director and Partner at Lampost Productions, Elizabeth de Stadler, Founder of Novation Consulting, and Peter Wharton-Hood, Group CEO of Life Healthcare, who bring a wealth of experience in healthcare leadership. Together, our guests will shed light on the importance of executive wellness and its profound impact on organisational success.
