It is a known fact that leaders who are healthy and fit are more productive. Many leaders and senior executives spend more than half of their time working, so it’s essential to incorporate a health coaching program to support health and sustainability. Having worked closely with leaders since 1997, Thulani is acutely aware of the numerous challenges they face. Her holistic approach integrates performance psychology, positive psychology, flow science, nutrition and contemplative practices.
A leader’s ability to be productive and fully engaged is a result of emotional, physical, and psychological well-being. Health and energy is essential for sustainable leadership. A former competitive athlete, Thulani’s wellness coaching is based on the premise that performance is a biproduct of skillfully managing human energy. By incorporating healthy behaviors and self-care practices, leaders can serve their mission and lead purposeful lives without sacrificing quality of life.
As a leader, you have a lot on your plate. You’re responsible for managing teams, making important decisions, and ensuring the success of your organization. In the midst of all this, it can be easy to put your own well-being on the backburner. However, taking care of yourself is essential to being an effective leader. In this article, we’ll explore the benefits of leadership wellness and why it should be a priority for all leaders.
When you take care of yourself, you’re less likely to experience burnout, stress, and other health issues. By practicing self-care, such as getting enough sleep, exercising regularly, and eating a healthy diet, you can improve your overall health and well-being. This can lead to greater longevity and a more fulfilling life both inside and outside of work.
Key Benefits of Leadership Wellness
In today’s fast-paced world, stress is a common experience for many people, and it can negatively impact both mental and physical health. Our mindfulness coaching program is designed to help individuals and teams learn techniques for managing stress and promoting overall well-being.
Mindfulness can be a powerful tool for managing stress. When individuals and teams practice mindfulness, they become more aware of their thoughts, feelings, and bodily sensations. This increased awareness can help them to recognize when they are feeling stressed, and to take steps to manage that stress in healthy ways.
Mindfulness can also help individuals and teams to develop a greater sense of resilience, which can make them better able to cope with stress when it arises. By practicing mindfulness regularly, individuals and teams can train their minds to become more focused and less reactive, which can help them to remain calm and centered even in stressful situations.

Managing stress is a challenge for most people; however, leaders and executives have unique stressors that affect their lives. Many are faced with busy schedules, long work hours, and major responsibilities that often lead to severe consequences in the event that something goes wrong. High-performing leaders tend to live under immense pressure and many often turn to alcohol or recreational drugs to ease the anxiety and emotional strain of managing the demands of their professional and personal lives.
Recovery coaching is a non-clinical, self-directed, strengths-based partnership between coach and client with the goal of achieving long-term recovery and improved quality of life. Recovery coaches help individuals on the path of recovery, before, during, and after treatment.
A careful listener and a trusted confidant, Thulani has worked closely with leaders and high-profile individuals who struggle with substance use and other addictions. A fellow journeyer, Thulani has been in long-term recovery for 27 years.
Human Energy is the most important resource organizations have, yet one of the biggest problems impacting organizations today and preventing teams from maximizing effectiveness is a lack of energy.
Flow coaching is a unique approach to team coaching that focuses on helping teams achieve a state of flow. Flow is a state of complete absorption in an activity, where time seems to fly by and the individual or team is completely immersed in the task at hand. Flow coaching can help teams to achieve this state of flow, leading to improved productivity, creativity, and overall team performance.
Thulani’s coaching process is designed to help teams identify the factors that are preventing them from achieving a state of flow, and to develop strategies for overcoming these obstacles.
Neuroscientific studies have referred to this as an altered state of consciousness. Thulani draws from a holistic set of interventions that help leaders and their teams access flow. If you are curious about how to harness your energy and optimize performance through flow coaching, please reach out.
