There is a ME in TEAM -- and self-care is important, to bring your best self to your team. But let's face it, world-changers aren't very good at self-care.
We are good at taking care of others, so let's turn that superpower onto each other, and build cultures of Team-care, not just Self-care.
Wellness at work is more than addressing physical challenges of exercise, nutrition, and rest -- it's also related to mental resilience and team trust.
Let's talk about your team's needs. We're on this journey with you.
