Abstract

Purpose

The purpose of this paper is to inspire business leaders with fresh ideas to create a positive work environment that uplifts and motivates their employees in a manner that increases job fulfillment and business growth.

Design/methodology/approach

The author’s approach to discovering these solutions include putting to use ideas that she has developed over 25 years of working in the corporate environment and being an entrepreneur, with the desire to create highly positive and productive work environments to realize successful businesses and successful lives for everyone involved.

Findings

There are several simple but powerful things that every manager and business leader can do to promote a highly productive and motivated workforce. Mind and body wellness is a foundation for performance and motivation, with a focus on the mind. If managers and business leaders cultivate an open and encouraging work culture, the positive psychology experienced by employees will help to motivate them in both their professional and personal lives.

Originality/value

The author finds that people rarely understand the impact of mind and body wellness on the success of the individual and the organization overall.
