I asked each of these leaders a single question about healthy leadership:

Their answers fell into 3 categories: Physical health, mental health, and spiritual health. These 3 areas of health are critical to your success and I’m glad to see a recurring theme among the answers.

I’m thankful to each of the over 50 leaders that responded and were willing to be a part of this expert roundup. I believe their insights into healthy habits of leaders will inspire you to find your own.

How To Assemble A Support System

Even leaders need help

One of the hardest things for a leader to do is to ask for help. Too many new leaders see this asking for help as a sign of weakness.

What A Healthy Support System Looks Like

We’ve been lied to. We’ve been fed the lie leadership is a lonely battle.

You have a choice. You can cultivate a healthy support system and be an effective leader. To do so, you have to surround yourself with people who will hold you up when you are weak.
