    #051 - A 91% Increase in Cardiovascular Death Risk...The Impact on Your People and Your Business (Tim Borys)

    #051 - A 91% Increase in Cardiovascular Death Risk...The Impact on Your People and Your Business (Tim Borys)

    The personal choices of employees are their own to make. However, companies also have a vested interest in ensuring that each person is as healthy, engaged, and high performing as possible. Balancing the nuances of this gray area is one of the most challenging aspects of leadership and corporate culture.
    Doing it well requires a customized blend of access to information, clear communication, leadership strategy, and employee engagement. The combination of these factors are important components of your unique corporate culture recipe.
    Today’s episode brings up a topic that’s traditionally within the employees personal choice, but the health risk is important for companies to understand and mitigate. Similar to the challenges from smoking, excess drinking and drugs, or other unhealthy behaviours, companies that can engage, inform, and help guide healthier choices in employee populations will see outsized financial, operational, and corporate culture returns. 
    This episode brings my background in Health Coaching and Performance to the forefront and combines it with the challenges facing companies, leaders, and the quest for improved workplace wellbeing.
    I look forward to your thoughts and comments. I encourage you to reach out and engage in the conversation!

    #048 - Navigating Toxic Workplaces and Remote Work (with Dr. Laura Hambley Lovett)

    Remote work, hybrid work, and back to office orders. These topics are taking up a lot of bandwidth these days. A key part of this focus is because companies are still coming to terms with the massive workplace changes of the past few years. That has led to a mental health pandemic that doesn’t seem to be going away, and rising levels of stress and burnout in the workplace.
    To shed some light on these challenges and solutions, I’m excited to have Dr. Laura Hambley Lovett on the show today. She’s a rockstar PhD and organizational psychologist who was researching remote work way back in 2003.
    Dr. Laura is an Organizational Psychologist and expert on workplace psychology with a specialty on the future of work and career development. Her work passion is creating cultures where people stay and thrive, so that companies can attract top talent.
    Dr. Laura has founded several psychology and consulting practices, including Canada Career Counselling in 2009, where registered psychologists help 1000s of Canadians navigate their career and workplace challenges, and support organizations with career transitions.
    She holds a Ph.D. in Industrial/Organizational Psychology from the University of Calgary, where she is currently an Adjunct Professor. Dr. Laura received a Canadian Women of Inspiration Award as a Global Influencer in 2018.
