It was a pleasure speaking with author Gail Voisin about her new book entitled ” All Together Now – Vision, Leadership and Wellness“. I can’t remember exactly how Gail and I met, but we have been speaking about the birth of her new book over the last year, and I am proud to bring you this wonderful podcast with Gail.
As Gail states “Achieving outstanding personal and organizational success in our busy, competitive, chaotic world requires a unique, leading-edge set of skills for the twenty-first century executive and leaders. It is critical to have the knowledge and ability to align the three key areas of vision, leadership and wellness to measure and sustain high performance levels. In my interview with Gail, we speak about her ” All Together Now Advantage Model“. It is designed to guide the busy executive in defining both their personal and organizational vision, leadership and wellness goals. It is truly an integrated approach to creating a balanced lifestyle. For most corporate executives, every day is a constant challenge to balance the many facets of life – career, family, friends and personal goals.
Gail states that balancing our lives does not have to be a daily struggle. When you understand the importance of integrating your personal and organization vision, leadership and wellness, you will have the foundation to achieve extraordinary success in your personal and work life. Personal vision is the anchor, and I could not agree more with Gail. When you have developed your personal vision and can articulate it easily, it becomes that anchor that keeps you on track for what matter most. Personal vision is a special and unique combination of desire and talent that is exclusive only to you.
You know the old saying that your health is your wealth. Well this is so true, and Gail devotes a section of the book to wellness and the benefits from staying healthy– psychologically, physically, and emotionally. This plays a big role in our overall health.
Gail defines wellness as maintaining a healthy mind and body that can consistently sustain the energy reserves you need to meet exceptional circumstances beyond your control, both in business and family life. Wellness and the focus on it is certainly in the headlines of our newspapers, and it is such an important aspect in being able to perform on and off the job with excess energy and enthusiasm. Gail provides wonderful advice and direction for the busy executive who might feel they have neglected this very important part of their life.
“All Together Now” is a wonderful read for anyone who is seeking balance and harmony in their life. I highly recommend reading this book if you are on the fast track and want to take a few minutes to step back and reevaluate what is important.
