An avid user of the GLWS, we asked her to share some of her insights about how she facilitates awareness, insights and actions with her clients – at individual, team and organisational levels – and how the GLWS helps her to do so.
– Dr Órla NicDomhnaill, CEO Thrive Advisory
Each of the leaders I have worked with have benefited from the process and outcomes – namely self-awareness about what was really impacting their sense of well-being and commitment/support with action. Everyone has at least 1-2 themes that jump out as things to maintain and others to focus more attention on. My coaching clients and I keep a separate wellness action plan that nobody else sees. We use this to think through wellness activities or “homework” between sessions and as a standing discussion topic in each coaching session.
GLWS has also been very helpful in a positive sense with regard to culture and organisational role fit.
For those leaders at a critical career juncture and about to embark of a search for a new role, the exercise has highlighted things that are missing with the person’s manager, colleagues or their organisation. It has helped several of my clients identify why things are going awry and pin-points what they will need to look for in their next role or organization.”
