In this episode, we’re talking all about health and wellness at work. Something small business owners – and especially female business owners – struggle with often. Joining me for this conversation is Amber Gourley, a Functional and Integrative Dietitian and owner of Heal U.
We start our conversation by chatting about the importance of prioritizing health and wellness for small business owners and leaders. Amber shares her personal journey from business and human resources to dietetics, and how she started Heal U to empower women to make positive lifestyle changes.
As leaders, it's also critical for us to create a healthy workplace culture by prioritizing the wellness of our team, since employees bring their whole selves to work and cannot leave their sickness, stress, or personal problems at the door. Healthy employees are more productive and contribute more to the workplace, so not only is it the right thing to do, it’s a smart business move, too.
Amber emphasizes the need for boundaries in wellness and shares simple, low-cost ways to support one's own health, as well as the health of the team that can put into practice right away! We also discuss how you can prioritize wellness for your employees, by considering their unique needs and preferences.
This conversation encourages leaders to slow down, take care of yourself, and your team. Because when we prioritize wellness, we create a healthier company culture and have a more significant impact in the world together.
