“GLWS® provides a comprehensive and in-depth snapshot of an individual’s wellbeing. It is a springboard to a rich conversation that taps into many areas, both personal and professional.”

Using GLWS® for leadership development

Leadership behaviour and style has been proven to directly affect a team’s wellbeing. Further, when leaders address their own wellbeing needs, through successful leadership development, it creates a ripple effect that directly benefits and enhances the wellbeing of an entire team.1

Leaders with a highly developed wellbeing capability cast a stronger, bigger and better shadow when it comes to improving employees’ perceptions, emotions, attitudes and motivation. Put simply, they’re better at engaging their teams because they role-model, sponsor and promote meaningful wellbeing initiatives.

By strengthening their understanding of wellbeing and how to sustain it – at work and at home – GLWS helps shield leaders and their teams against the stress and strain of continuous change.

It integrates professional and personal wellbeing, providing insights in a highly tailored and meaningful way to support individual, team and organisational success.

"I have really valued EEK & SENSE’s approach of working closely with their accredited partners to ensure great outcomes for clients. I would recommend the GLWS accreditation to any coach who wants to build their skills, expand their service offering, and enhance the wellbeing and performance of their clients."

Andi Pert – Facilitator & Executive Coach, Life NRG

"The GLWS accreditation workshop was extremely valuable. I learned about the GLWS model and reports in-depth, and through case studies and the experience of Karen and Audrey, gained great ideas for handling more challenging wellbeing concerns. All in all, the day was informative, practical and very enjoyable. Thank you."

Caoimhe Richmond, Capability Consulting

"After considerable market research I chose the GLWS program as it was definitely a unique offering that stood out from other diagnostic tools. Completing the GLWS accreditation allowed me to expand my qualifications and provided me with a tool that would add considerable value to my business offering. The online accreditation process was a fantastic experience and Karen and the team were great throughout. Very excited to be on board!"

"Individual leaders have experienced a highly personalised intervention, aimed at supporting them to take personal responsibility for making positive changes to enhance their wellbeing. As an organisation, I feel we are now well placed to create targeted wellbeing interventions to address the needs, giving us a better return on investment than simply applying a wellbeing ‘band aid’."

Sean Carroll, GM of People, Culture and Innovation, Australia Post

"GLWS was an important eye-opener, a pointed and timely prompt to make some changes I knew I needed to make….and I feel so much better for it now. Nearly 6 months have passed, and I am still reaping the benefits at a personal level and I can see the positive changes happening across my whole team."

Jen Delves, Head of People Services, QANTAS

"We are witnessing a huge increase in the need and demand for executive wellness. More and more my clients and I are discussing how they spend their time and energy and the difficulties they are experiencing with integrating personal, family and work commitments. The GLWS is invaluable."

Dr Órla NicDomhnaill, CEO, Thrive Advisory

"What has been so powerful for the participants is how tangible the outcomes are. The GLWS allows you to fast-track the coaching conversation and immediately identify which aspects of wellbeing need attention. The conversation very quickly becomes about brainstorming actions that will improve overall wellbeing. It’s such a positive and empowering tool."

Lauren Jauncey, (former) Head of Diversity & Inclusion, Australia Post
