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

What healthy habits do you attribute to your success as a leader?

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.

What Does A Healthy Leader Look Like?

I believe a healthy leader looks to take care of their mental, physical, spiritual health. When a leader takes care of these 3 areas of their life, their life becomes better.

But why do these 3 health areas for a leader impact their lives so much? It’s because your mental, physical, spiritual health directly impacts the way you lead.

If you’re physically unhealthy, you won’t be able to keep up with the day-to-day grind of leadership. You’ll burn out. You’ll become tired. And you won’t have the energy to do the work.

Dan, can you tell us a little about yourself?

I spent 22 as an army officer. I’m a paternal twin and my twin brother still serves in the navy, he’s in his 32nd year. We were raised by our aunt and uncle.
