Self-care and wellbeing for business leaders and entrepreneurs
With Paul Hargreaves, entrepreneur, author and Chief Exec of Cotswold Fayre Ltd.
A talk and book launch in partnership with The Jersey Good Business Charter
Business leaders are increasingly aware of the need to care for their people and take seriously the wellbeing of those who work for and with them.
Many businesses are taking this further and adopting a “triple bottom line” approach, balancing the need to become profitable with attention to the social and environmental value that they are creating.
What is less often discussed and considered are the effects of leading a business on the leader themselves. Business performance can be deeply affected by the wellbeing, health, and state of mind of the leader. This is particularly true for entrepreneurs and startups where the risks of overwork and burnout are dangerously high.
Paul Hargreaves, in his new book, Forces for Good, explores what he calls “the fourth bottom” line – which is YOU – asking how your business is impacting and creating value for you and your wellbeing.
In this talk, interview and q&a Paul will talk about what he has learned about work ethos, use of time, mindful practices and self-awareness which have contributed to his own wellbeing, the success of his business and his enjoyment of his work and life. He will explain how he has learned to achieve more by doing less.
He will also share some of the other ideas in his new book.
