Written by Kieran Murphy Management Consultant and Executive Coach
Friday 8th April is National Wellbeing in the Workplace Day, in Ireland.
When I spotted this it got me thinking about my experience of my own Wellbeing in the different workplaces I've been. One thing in particular struck me. As a manager I had a sense of responsibility for other's Wellbeing but I wasn't great at thinking about my own Wellbeing. I could have benefited from a conversation with someone with the question: "So Kieran, how is your Wellbeing in the Workplace? "
Over the years I've noticed that cultivating a mindset of Abundance has helped my sense of Wellbeing. The opposite of Abundance is Scarcity - that feeling of not having enough: time - too much to do; money - imagining what I could do with more; stillness - always busy; important events too fleeting. In contrast, Abundance, is cultivating a sense that I have more than enough - I live in a universe of beauty and mystery; my most precious requirements are free and available - love and oxygen; I don't need to compete with other for business - if what I offer is of value then I will attract work; and I can see in the world, if I choose to notice, heroic acts of bravery, commitment and imagination.
As part of my contribution to Wellbeing in the Workplace Day, in a spirit of Abundance, I'm offering 3 Managers a Free one hour coaching session on the 8th of April, for them to explore their Wellbeing. I am limiting it to Managers because of my inattention to my own Wellbeing while I was a Manager.
All I ask in return is that you Pay it Forward: do an anonymous act of kindness for someone else. And do it before the 28th April, which is International Pay it Forward Day. “Each time I perform an act of kindness, a part of me heals.”
