Exercise Part 1: Your well-being balance sheet

The objective of this exercise is to surface key areas of your well-being that you want to address or strengthen and to translate this into a statement of intent. It will also surface areas to be addressed that will inform your priorities in the Self pillar and with the Relationships and Work pillars.

Complete the well-being balance sheet templates describing your well-being qualitatively and quantitatively. Identify and score your resources (assets) and challenges (liabilities) across the six areas to calculate your overall net well-being score.

Note: This exercise is based on the Global Leadership Well-being Survey by Eek & Sense Partners. If you are interested in taking the full survey and receiving guided feedback on your report from a Strategy Together accredited practitioner, please contact kit.jackson@strategytogether.com




Exercise Part 2: Your well-being reflections

Using the Well-being Reflections and Priorities worksheet to capture your thoughts, consider the following:

Your well-being strengths:

  • Who or what is sustaining you and contributing to your well-being?
  • What can you do to ensure these factors continue to sustain you?

Your well-being challenges:

  • What are the well-being detractors that are important for you to address?
  • What could you do to change these and what impact would making the change have on your well-being?

Typically, around 20% of people are ‘thriving’, 30% of people are ‘striving’; 30% of people are ‘struggling’, and 20% are ‘languishing’.

Are you in the ‘thriving and striving’ set surfing the wave or the ‘struggling and languishing’ set being hit by the waves and underwater? If you are in the latter set, what help will you seek?

Describe your priority:

What well-being priority reflects the commitment that you are making to change to make a positive difference to your health, vitality, and well-being?  Capture your notes and insights on what is surfacing as your priority in the Well-being Reflections and Priorities worksheet. 

What does this mean to you?

Note any ideas on areas for improvement, actions, targets and what this priority means to you and your future.

What has this exercise surfaced that might be relevant in:

  • The statement of intent for best self and best life?
  • The Relationships or Work pillars?
